TRY A LITTLE SUNSHINE ~ THE BRITISH PSYCHEDELIC SOUNDS OF 1969: 3CD CLAMSHELL BOXSET

Grapefruit



3cd

Released: 31st Aug 2018

£21.99


this comp covers every aspect of the 1969 British pop sound to provide not just four hours of vital late Sixties music, but a fascinating look at how the mode of the music changed as a tumultuous decade drew to a close.

1967 has always been thought of as the high-water mark of the era, but the psychedelic genre’s influence lingered for some while afterwards. Nevertheless, there were significant changes during that period, and by the end of the decade the British music scene had largely polarised into two distinct camps: the influence of the counterculture saw the burgeoning college/university circuit grow as “serious” pop evolved into rock, while the more exploitative, commercial element of the industry reacted to the success of manufactured bands like The Monkees to instigate a sub-genre dismissively dubbed bubblegum. That dichotomy saw the British pop and rock scene exhibit a strong element of musical schizophrenia, as can be heard here…
