It was a time of unprecedented prosperity and incredible disparity, one of astounding scientific discovery and breathtaking paranoia. The Cold War, the Space Race, the fledgling rumblings of Civil Rights movements – all of these were part of the consciousness of the time. Amid all these discoveries and rapid-fire changes, some of the world’s most exciting and innovative music sprang up.
