1962-1969

I grew up in a house where music played from morning ’til midnight . . . music that largely reflected the tastes of the two San Francisco ex-hippies who happen to be my parents. My French immigrant mother spiced things up with jazz and my dad with the blues, but both shared the eclectic range of musical tastes that characterized the 1960’s.

This is why I’ve done more 1960’s reviews than any other period in musical history. While I don’t have share the Baby Boomer nostalgic reverence of the era or the adulation they tend to heap upon their heroes, I do agree that it was the most creative, inventive and diverse period in the history of popular music. From San Francisco to Liverpool to Swinging London to Motown to The Village, the 1960’s redefined the boundaries of music forever.
