The 60's or what?!,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Love Poetry And Revolution: A Journey Through The British Psychedelic And Underground Scenes 1966 To 1972 (Audio CD)
So, you are a child of the sixties. You grew up there with the music blooming all around you, and could not stop listening to the sheer vibrancy that enveloped and surrounded. Okay, there wasn't that much on the radio, only TOTP on the tv, but somehow you got to hear it all. Wrong! There are enough numbers on just the first cd of this 3cd compilation that will have you wondering just where your head was at, where you were when these tracks were made. I can give the excuse that after the initial relief of hearing the Beatles, the amazement of listening to The Stones, and the wide open wonder of the brilliant, cutting-edge bands that followed - The Kinks, The Who, The Small Faces, Spencer Davis...and many many more (you name your own if you wish) - I was swept up by the Soul bandwagon, so maybe my head was not quite in the right place for this at the time.
It matters not. It is here now, and the wonder is wide, the amazement is mesmerizing, the music is miraculous. On top of that it is also a really cheap buy, despite the beautiful box and the bountiful booklet. Enough already, except to say that if you are not a child of the 60's buy this and you will be!
