RHINO SUMMER OF LOVE
Five decades ago, in the Haight-Ashbury district of San Francisco, a social movement was growing. Young people, with heads full of progressive ideas and evolving attitudes toward sex, drugs and rock and roll, were converging on the area to celebrate their personal freedom–an extension of that January’s “Human Be-In” in San Francisco’s Golden Gate Park. The “Summer of Love,” as it was called, was the birth of the modern counterculture, and music played an integral role in the shaping, influencing and mainstreaming of these daring new ideas. Rhino Records is celebrating that historic period with 18 catalog titles throughout July–including new compilations and vinyl reissues of classic albums. More information and details of the releases coming from Rhino as part of the Summer Of Love program can be found Here.
