I always saw 1965-1975 as something of a 'golden age' for music. You'd be hard-pressed to find a genre that wasn't seeing some of its greatest records released in that time frame. Even a lot of the classic hip-hop artists from the '90s heavily sampled bands/artists from that era.

I also remember reading an article last year about a study that was done on popular music over the past 50 years, and they found that, in terms of the chords, melodies and instrumentation used, there's significantly less variation nowadays than there was in the '60s/'70s.
