AllMusic Review by

At 30 tracks spread over three discs (everything here could have easily fit on two discs, if not on a single one), this set does include a bunch of songwriters from the 1960s and '70s, although the focus really isn’t on songwriters, in spite of the title -- there are several bands represented, for instance. The tracks are pretty familiar, and include “Daydream” by the Lovin’ Spoonful, Donovan’s “Season of the Witch,” Loudon Wainwright’s “Dead Skunk,” and Janis Ian’s comeback hit “At Seventeen,” among others.
