VA - Time Life Music Classic Rock 1964-1969 [1987-1988] (6 x CD's)

Time Life was founded in 1961 as the book division of Time Inc. It took its name from Time Inc.'s cornerstone magazines, Time and Life, but remained independent of both. During 1966, Time Life combined its book offerings with music collections (two to five records) and packaged them as a sturdy box set. Throughout the 1970s and 1980s, the selection of books, music and videos grew and was diversified into more genres. When record labels stopped producing vinyl albums in 1990, Time Life switched to CD only. In the mid-1990s, Time Life acquired Heartland Music, with the Heartland Music label now appearing as a brand. This company was subsequently sold off and is no longer attached to Time Life. Time Life added music in 1962, selling box sets and collections through Time–Life Records. During the 1960s and 1970s, the collections released by Time–Life Records catered to a conservative adult audience, with genres including classical, jazz, swing and orchestral music, and the music of operas and Broadway theatre. On occasion, Time Life offered popular music (generally pre-1955 music, as opposed to pop and rock music airing on contemporary hit radio stations in the United States at the time) in box sets. Although there were television advertisements, Time Life advertised most of these sets in magazines, specialty catalogs and direct mail. (Wikipedia)

Time-Life music did a phenomenal job with this series (Classic Rock). Sound quality is very good, and the anthology is a good mix of big hits and less familiar hits. This is a mix of mainstream Mid Sixties American Pop Rock, the British Invasion and the Motown Sound. All-in-all these disc gives you a great feel for Classic Rock in the mid to late Sixties. The entire series is really worth having. Keeping with the series title, there is very little here that could be considered Bubblegum or pure Pop. (Amazon)

    1. Hi Spidey.
      You made me smile. I would just download it anyway.
      I am just updating dead links which are requested. It also allows some new visitors to find music posted ages ago.
      Cheers.
