There was an 18-month-period, from late 1968 through mid-1970 that clearly had some of the best music ever. This was the year of Woodstock. The Beatles were still going strong, but touring less, and would soon stop completely. Led Zeppelin's first two albums, Zeppelin I and Zeppelin II, were released in 1969. The era of "free love" and the uncertainties of the Vietnam War probably contributed to some of this really incredible music.If you are at all interested in "pop music," consider just scrolling through the post at the link above. It completely blows me away that all these songs were competing for air time in 1969 or thereabouts, from mid- to late-1968 to early 1970.
If you came here for the Bakken, look at what KOG is doing: eleven (11) wells in one spacing unit.
