Another Decade Ends In Turmoil

5o years ago, the 60s ended with uncertainty and foreboding, after a tumultuous 1969 with the Vietnam War and many other things unresolved. So it may be fitting that in the decade of peace and love, the last classic album of the decade was a dark record reflecting both discord in the world and in the band. Let It Bleed is by no means easy listening, but the Rolling Stones classic album begins and ends with two absolute classics. Gimme Shelter and You Can’t Always Get What You Want offer contrasting tempos, but both offer hope and solace during tough times. So happy 50th birthday , Let It Bleed!
