The music of 1968 defined an era: the sounds of Motown, the Beatles at their height, Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, Johnny Cash, the Rolling Stones, and so many more. Musicians captured the feelings and thoughts of young people across the country. The lyrics echoed the nightly news - yet told an entirely new story. Rediscover the music of the times in this all-new Special Edition from TIME-LIFE, Music of 1968: Rock and Roll's Greatest Year. Filled with iconic photos and thought-provoking articles, this collectible is perfect for everyone who loves great rock 'n' roll and how it came to be. Learn how the music of the time was reflected in what was happening socially and culturally, as Aretha Franklin, Dusty Springfield, and Laura Nyro fought to break into the boy's club, and the music coming from Detroit and Motown echoed many of the sentiments of the Civil Rights movement. With features on Bob Dylan, Sly and the Family Stone, the Bee Gees, the Supremes, Stevie Wonder, Frank Zappa, the Doors, and many more all-time greats, and the songs that they made famous, this is a must-have for every rock fan.
