AllMusic Review by

First there was the revolution--then came the TV show. NBC's critically praised mini-series The 60's had as much to do with its historically-driven storyline as it did the music from those torturous times.

Most of the 15 selections have been spinning on oldies stations for years. The Band's "The Weight," The Lovin' Spoonful's "Do You Believe in Magic," The Beach Boys' "Don't Worry Baby" and Jefferson Airplane's "Somebody to Love," among other chestnuts, are included in this veritable soundtrack for a generation. For those more familiar with '60s music, there's the relatively obscure Byrds song "Draft Morning," Graham Nash's exceptional "Chicago/We Can Change The World" and a fine remake of Bob Dylan's "Chimes of Freedom," which features Dylan duetting with Joan Osborne.
