The 1960s news headlines gave an incredible backdrop to the decade, culminating in the rise and popularity of so many musical styles and genres. The main theme running through the mid-late 60s was love, peace, antiwar - not much has changed in 40 years - and this superb album is littered with some of those conscience-carrying songs that climbed to the top of
the British and American charts.
This 17-track collection acts as a soundtrack to the decade and includes the Number 1 hits by Norman Greenbaum and Chris Farlowe, as well as many thought-provoking classics by Jimmy Cliff, Donovan and The Zombies.
Features 17 influential and timeless classics
Contains a 1,000 word annotation of the hits and news stories
Also includes the poignant Transatlantic Number 1 'In The Year 2525' by Zager & Evans
