As promised, here’s the comprehensive list of the best cultural artifacts of 1969. 

Assuredly, you’re not on some dung-strewn path to Boomernostalgialand, source of that lame, self-exculpating joke among Boomers about not remembering the ‘60s.1 

I was only around for 34 days and my chief concern was clean underwear – something hippies never cottoned to. My earliest verifiable memories are from 1972, involving visits to or from one or the other set of grandparents.2  But then I always was precocious.

Nevertheless, it took 40 years – far too long – to discover most of what’s worthy, and this from an era that’s been culturally strip-mined to exhaustion.3 Even the re-evaluations, corrections and revisions are old.4 

Rolling Stone magazine and other geriatric-oriented media found in medical waiting rooms rigidly use this sort of list as a form of generational breast-beating as they focus on stuff for them, and more infrequently, by them, that usually wasn't any good in the first place, especially if one was sober. That approach ignores the viable work from older people, often from the Golden Age of American Show Business,  and numerous early examples of 1970s work, that don't fit into the full-time Boomer's narrow esthetic-stylistic canon. Obviously, I limited my list to what I like, but if a given work became publicly available during 1969, it's here. 

To paraphrase Henry Adams, 1969 was closer to the time of the Romans than to 2010.5 So it’s the contrast that appears most vivid. Various technae, occupations, cultural artifacts and artistic genres did not exist then. More were under- or unacknowledged, in the sense that people wrote about them, as judged by the pre- and post-1969 entries in the WorldCat union catalog. Since then, a profusion of books have been published about salsa music and various ethnic cuisines, for example. Even with golf, nearly six times as many books have been published about it in my lifetime, as from 1969 back to the mid-18th century, when it was just a bizarre Scottish practice.

Perhaps a devoted reader can discern further patterns within.
