How Music Changed

    And we thought 1966 couldn’t be beat…

    The year of the ‘Summer of Love’ had a Winter that preceded that legendary season, and already, there was something in the air. Incredible soul music continued to flow from both the north and the south, and the US adequately proved that it was not only capable of meeting the British Invasion but surpassing it. Diversity was a key to the quality of the times.
