Perhaps all music, even the newest, is not so much something discovered as something that re-emerges from where it lay buried in the memory.

With all the 60’s bashing going down in the past few decades it’s hard to recapture the very real magnetism and transcendence of those times … Scarsdale Rocks!
With all the 60’s bashing going down in the past few decades it’s hard to recapture the very real magnetism and transcendence of those times without coming across like some old guy hopelessly stuck in some sentimental rendition of the good old days. Suffice it to say that recognized social science has pretty well pegged the 1960s and ‘70s as having really generated an historic transformation in society and its values.
Say what you will, it was a watershed moment in history. Regardless of neo-con hysterics by people who really do “hate our freedom”, one of the most obvious ways to overcome anti-60’s prejudices is to pass on the experience of the music of the 1960s, letting it speak for itself.
