The Summer of Peace, Love and Music, Vol. 1 is a decent single-disc set highlighting ten pop singles released in the late '60s. Along with a few of the tried and true radio classics by Donovan, the Youngbloods, and the Moody Blues are less than obvious inclusions by Matthews' Southern Comfort, Richie Havens, Goose Creek Symphony, and Arlo Guthrie. While the sound quality isn't state of the art, these are the original recordings and this compilation is recommended if you see it in the bargain bins.
