Time Life has released a comprehensive musical retrospective of the Flower Power era, featuring 10 CDs with 175 songs from such legendary artists as Bob Dylan, The Mamas and the Papas, The Lovin Spoonful, The Byrds, Richie Havens, The Electric Prunes, Janis Joplin, The Kinks, The Band, and Jefferson Airplane, to name only a few.
The era captured on "Flower Power" cannot be defined by the beginning or end of any particular decade, but by the spirit of political and social change that resonated from the streets of San Francisco and the canyons of LA, from London’s mod Carnaby Street, and from the rolling pastures of Woodstock. From the youthful optimism of Scott Mackenzie’s “San Francisco (Be Sure to Wear Some Flowers in Your Hair”) and the psychedelic perspective of The Byrds’s “Eight Miles High,” to the politically conscious sentiments of Barry McGuire’s “Eve of Destruction” and Janis Ian’s “Society’s Child,” Flower Power captures every nuance of a time unlike any other in American history.
