The music of the 1960s captured the essence of a decade that saw many great social, economic and political convulsions. The Beach Boys sang of pretty girls and fast cars; Bob Dylan spoke of poverty, pain and corruption; the Rolling Stones talked of the Devil; and Pink Floyd discovered their own surrealistic world. And their music remains influential today.
100 Great Albums of the Sixties is an authoritative, fact-filled guide to the 100 best albums made during the most creative period in 20th Century popular music. They reflect the various musical styles of the period: including rhythm and blues, soul, folk, heavy rock, psychedelic and protest. The book examines the origins of these styles and the circumstances that pushed each artist in their own particular direction, as well as their influence on rock music from the 1960s until now.
Box features show track listings, recording and personnel details, and photographs of the album sleeves illustrate each recording. Expertly written by a rock writer who chronicled the Sixties, this informative and attractive book is sure to appeal to the uninitiated who are being introduced to the best decade in postwar popular music and to those revisiting the classics.
