Overview

1967 brought rock music to the surface through an explosion of memorable hit singles that permeated the sonic landscape. The sheer stylistic diversity alone was incredible, and Summer of Love does a terrific job capturing that joyful eclecticism. Bringing together pure pop (“Windy," “Happy Together”); garage rock (“Talk Talk,” “Pushin’ Too Hard”); psychedelia (the Vanilla Fudge version of “You Keep Me Hangin’ On,” “Somebody to Love”); folk rock (“Darling Be Home Soon,” “Get Together”); soul (“I Was Made to Love Her,” “Reflections”); blues rock (“Wake Me, Shake Me,” “Down on Me” ); and more, this set presents a thoroughly entertaining picture of a radical musical epoch. That most of these performances are still in current rotation on classic rock radio stations is proof enough of their staying power. The third disc is a DVD documentary of the period, hosted by Paul Kantner of the Jefferson Airplane.

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Steve Leggett
This two-disc set (there is a DVD disc entitled My Generation: The History of Rock 'n' Roll also included in the package) from Time-Life is split into two parts (arbitrarily labeled AM and FM), both of which are centered on the pivotal year of 1967, the year in which rock went psychedelic and widened its scope into the political and social arenas, a cultural explosion that added flower power to the menu and a good deal of depth and substance (and a fair amount of foolishness) as well. For all the fine music that is included here, ranging from the Beach Boys, the Box Tops, and the Byrds to Cream, the Music Machine, and Traffic, it is what is not included that most defines the year that was: the Beatles. Of course, 1967 was the year the Beatles released Sgt. Pepper's, the first and probably best volley in all of this, and nothing from that album has been licensed for this collection, a thought listeners should keep in mind while wading through this otherwise fine compilation.
