OMG! Your list nails the nostalgic essence of the period and elevates long pent-up emotions. By comparison, other lists—and I am an Apple Playlist hoarder—only glance the topic. Those songs are from a tumultuous time in our history—Vietnam, Watergate, etc.—yet they stir such powerfully restorative emotions! Excellent timing. Thank you for the playlist. I’m going to add it now.

Addendum: Maybe add Barry Maguire’s “Eve of Destruction?”

Opening lyrics:

“The Eastern world, it is explodin'

Violence flarin', bullets loadin'”

So sad! Thanks again, Paul!!

Hi Paul greetings from chilli Québec. Great playlist today ... Hendrix appropriately on top ...

I invite you to explicitly spell out those we should be praying for (or whatever we do). Its UKRAINE loud and clear ... the people the country the struggling democracy it represents. And check out the psychedelic Ukrainian version of China Cat Sun Flower on youtube.

Art for Justice. Take a stand.

Keep up the great newsletter. Thanks.
