AllMusic Review by

Flower Power: The Music of the Love Generation is a three-disc, 45-track collection of every obvious song from the mid- to late '60s and early '70s by almost exclusively American acts. You know all these songs if you collect music from the era (or have watched a lot of television commercials or documentaries on the era), and more than likely have them, but for the price, it might be nice to have them all in one place. With hits from artists ranging from Sly & the Family Stone through Delaney & Bonnie, the Byrds, Janis Ian, the Lemon Pipers, Santana, Jefferson Airplane, Marvin Gaye, and many more, everything included here was a bona fide hit, and is regarded as historically inseparable from the period and as a key piece of rock & roll nostalgia.
