Backdate™ - the Sixties and Seventies

Sixties music and Seventies hits

The Sixties and Seventies music makers were in keeping with the period - revolutionaries and conservatives, weird, wild and wonderful.

Recall the feeling that the times they were a changing - especially both Sixties hits and Seventies charts.

If the chart records of the period are your bag then have a look at the major Sixties hits and sounds of the Seventies.

History of the Sixties and Seventies

The Sixties and Seventies suffered from hype. It was not as amazing to live during that period as subsequent reviews have suggested. The sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll were there all right - but they are today too.

It is a mistake to think that life at the beginning of the Sixties was similar to that at the end of the Seventies. Still, its worth bringing them together to illustrate what that short period did to revolutionise life in the UK and Western Civilisation.

We were a lot less revolutionary than you would think.  Politically highly incorrect and possessed of a lot of conservative views as this category shows.

The Sixties and Seventies - a period of larger than life people rocking every boat they could find and competing with establishment figures determined to stop change at all cost.

There is a treasure trove of superb films from the Sixties and Seventies. It ranges from Psycho to Godfather, from Sound of Music to Grease, and from Butch Cassidy to Star Wars.

The newer and better compilations of 60s & 70s hits

Let Ken Marr's directory of the best Sixties and Seventies websites carry you back to a more exciting time. Where possible, we concentrate on British memories and British websites. But sometimes American sites do a much better job - and we're not biased. Just don't take it all too seriously.
