California produced some impassioned musical talent in the 1960s and 70s. Many musicians who resided in the sun-soaked West Coast state embraced the hippie ethos that was prevalent at the time and delivered some music that was inexorably tied to the times in which it was produced, but also proved to have a timeless charm that has enchanted subsequent generations of music fans. Here, a sampling of the California Sound from the 60s and 70s is offered, with live performances from The Beach Boys, The Turtles, The Byrds, Sonny and Cher, Brian Wilson, James Taylor, and many others featured. Tracklist includes California Dreamin, Sloop John B, The Beat Goes On, Happy Together, Elenore and many more.
