Arts and Culture
Time Machine from The Current is a sonic journey across music history. Each week, host Bill DeVille takes you back to the sounds of a specific year with a carefully curated list of the best songs. Plus, he’ll invite you to reexamine some deeper cuts as we look back on what happened that year in music, pop culture and the world.
November 20: 1967 – The Summer of Love
- The Beatles spent months in the studio creating Sgt Pepper, you had Haight Ashbury, the Monterey Pop Festival, and the height of soul music. The war in Vietnam was escalating, along protests and civil rights riots hitting American streets. Jimi Hendrix, The Doors, and the Velvet Underground released their debuts. Psychedelic classics arrived form Pink Floyd, Cream, and Love, while The Jefferson Airplane and Grateful Dead established the San Francisco sound. Sam and Dave and Wilson Picket topped the charts, while the big loss in music was the plane crash death of Otis Redding, in the same year that Aretha Franklin topped the charts with her version of Respect. Wilt the Stilt dominated basketball leading the 76ers to a championship, Bob Gibson won three games leading the St Louis Cardinals to the World Series, and Vince Lombardi’s Green Bay Packers won the first Super Bowl.
