2015-05-15 World Music in the 1960s

Lord Kitchener, Lord Superior, and Lord Melody

Lord Kitchener, Lord Superior, and Lord Melody, 1962.

Third in a series of STG shows highlighting the global music sounds of different decades. I wasn’t listening to much global music in the 1960s, but it was there alongside (and sometimes mingling with) the rock and psychedelia of the counterculture. Dig it, daddy-o!
