Course Description

The ten-year period from 1964 to 1973 was a time during which many things changed. In popular music, we experienced a surge of creativity and artistry that was unprecedented before and unequaled since. Join us as we explore the music of those glory days together and discover something new in music that's familiar and some things you may have missed. You're likely to find that much of this music is timeless and still sounds fresh today. We'll recall the major bands of the British Invasion from both the first wave and later years. We'll delve into the musical chemistry that took root and flowered in Greenwich Village, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Detroit, and Memphis. We'll also explore how blues, jazz, R&B, and classical forms all found a place in the musical tapestry of rock. And we'll listen to audio and view video samples from every part of that spectrum. | Lecture (plus questions); Listening to audio recordings; Viewing videos
