  1. Thank you so much for your time and effort in documenting the 60’s. You’re setting the record straight, please keep it up. While scrolling through these album covers I can’t help but laugh at how unbelievable those three amazing years were in music quality and output. Yes, we never thought it’d end and it’ll never happen again. BTW, I don’t think Spielberg knew what he was igniting when he made Jaws. Be that as it may, there was no going back after that movie came out. Corporate studios released the greed kraken and nearly every movie was made with the ROI taking a position of primary concern instead of creativity.

    • Your comments are always sincerely appreciated.
      Yeah, those days/years were truly incredible and the music was just one facet of the diamond we were given. It seems that the insanity of evil was balanced by the heights of good so that we could still enjoy a middle ground of “the simple things”.
      Just think of the list of all of the great movies B.S. (before Spielberg) that would never get green-lighted today because of him. Maybe it was eventually inevitable and he was just in the right place and time, but that doesn’t stop me and many others from longing for the days of “All the President’s Men” where the action took place in a much higher realm where the monsters were power hungry humans and the explosions were in the actions of the brave who took them down.

      • So true. I think the Sci-fi genre has been affected the most. 2001: A Space Odyssey would never get made today and sadly we’ll never see another Sci-fi movie like it. Kubrick may not have had the counterculture in mind when he made 2001 but we were responsible for it’s success: intelligent movie made a success by an intelligent audience. What can be said about the demographic that’s responsible for the success of Michael Bay’s movies? Oh well… Peace!

        • I truly hate to have to say this, but we really were the “Crown of Creation”.
          Will future history prove me wrong? Sadly, I think not, for instead of enlightenment, awareness and intelligence, present (and future) society is most definitely headed toward Idiocracy – and that’s not funny.
          I’ll concede to the possibility of a “Hippie” “Movement” sometime in the future, but it will be limited and fleeting, more of a trend – but if sincere it will be welcomed for however long it lasts.

          • I agree. I think the Idiocracy is already here and growing; just read the online comments section of almost any story or video and you’ll be ready to take a nap or some other form of escape! Maybe, like the Occupy movement, another Movement similar to ours will germinate from the seeds of discontent. Maybe we need another Mario Savio, John Lennon or Abbie Hoffman; someone who connects people with like minds, someone who’s words can’t be ignored, someone of danger to the system, someone who will light the spark that will get people off their asses. Inertia has got to be the most powerful force in nature, that and the lure of the couch! We can dream! – Peace
