Hello fellow birthday year chums. I was also 9 in '67 and I liked a bunch of the songs posted here (and even remember the words; go me LOL).
Thanks for the memories OP.

In the mid 60's I had a fuzz box-plug in directly to my guitar...(Vox)...and a little switch on it... One of the 1st of its kind. The first few songs using distortion was "Heart of Soul"-the Yardbirds..."Satisfaction"-Rolling Stones..."Tobacco Road"-Blues Magoos...among others....
The distorted guitar sound was an invention of Dave Davis of The Kinks. It was first ever heard on " You Really Got Me " from 1964.
