1960 Top Artists

THE 1960s was an era of isms du jour. Race riots, war protests, space race, Nam, alternative lifestyles, bra and draftcards being barbequed...we circled the moon and no one wrote a song about it. Society was spinning counter-clockwise. And so was danceable music. The top album artists of the1960s were The Beatles, Bob Dylan, Monkees, Elvis, Simon & Garfinkle and The Doors. Beach Music was on life support. So why did it survive?
