Overview

Pop music exploded into several divergent paths during the 1960s, and the commercial beginnings of rock, soul, and so much more began in a decade that seemed to promise the moon, the stars, and beyond. This seven-disc, 105-track set captures the popular radio tracks from this period, from James Brown to the Beach Boys, from surf to British Invasion, and it illustrates the sheer variety of new sounds and styles that the '60s generated. There are some pretty notable absences here, though, with no Beatles, Rolling Stones, Who, Kinks, Jimi Hendrix, Byrds, or Motown tracks included, no doubt due to the cost of licensing, so in the end, this set, for all the fun it is, doesn't add up to an accurate musical history lesson.
