By Matthew G. Sherwin HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on February 17, 2008
Format: Audio CD
Summer of Love: Gold may not be the most complete CD set out there; but these two CDs do a rather good job of giving us the great music from the summer of 1967 anyway. The sound quality is great and I like the artwork, too.

The first album kicks off with Scott McKenzie's "San Francisco (Be Sure To Wear Some Flowers In Your Hair)." San Francisco was a major place to be during the "summer of love" in 1967; and Scott sings this so sweetly it amazes me. The percussion and guitars work well, too. Jefferson Airplane's ""Somebody To Love" celebrates the human need for romantic partners; this certainly connects well with the summer of love. The electric guitars on "Somebody To Love" are pretty awesome, too.

The Mamas & The Papas turn in a somewhat autobiographical ballad entitled "Creeque Alley;" they harmonize so well on this and the guitar arrangement works so well, too. Listen also for Spanky & Our Gang doing their great hit "Sunday Will Be The Same." This song is beautiful to hear every time I hear it; and the very, very subtle twist of psychedelic rock with something sounding like traditional softer rock or even folk rock really makes this a masterpiece. I am sure that you'll enjoy "Sunday Will Never Be The Same" very much. The Strawberry Alarm Clock do a great job on a bona fide psychedelic number called "Incense And Peppermints;" the guitars on this rock and they sing and play this one very well. The use of both major and minor keys really makes "Incense And Peppermints" very special. The CD ends strong with The Beach Boys doing their hottest hit probably ever, "Good Vibrations."

The second CD continues the hits.

Other reviewers have mentioned a couple of chronological anomalies, but I think that
this compilation just needs the Box Tops'"The Letter" and Bobbie Gentry's "Ode to Billie Joe" (and maybe the Doors' "Light My Fire", which didn't chart until summer
of '67) and you'd be "sweating to the hits" like we did back in those days of yore!

I am an avid collector of oldies. Last weekend I was listening to the radio and I heard a song that I had totally forgotten. Must have been one of those one song wonders. Well I had to buy it for my collection. I did the searches on Amazon and there was only one source for the digital wonder. It was included on a digital album and there were only a few songs that you could select as a single download. I started checking out the entire album and found that it was full of the oldies and many I had not collected. I decided to buy the entire album. I highly recommend this purchase if you are one of the many collectors of 60's oldies.

Great tunes, but overall quality of recordings varies widely. I don't know if this sound degradation was a result of downloading the MP3 rather than purchasing and using the CD???

I'm not sure which summer this was, but this collection is packed with smiles! I was a kid in Chicago when this stuff came out, and it was before I had to even worry about getting drafted. Girls were a mystery, school was a blur, and "wheels" were something you pedaled.

Life was simpler and fun.

Go ahead, get small again.

The Beatles ushered in the Summer of Love in 1967 with the release of SGT PEPPER and their single "All You Need Is Love." Hip-O's 31-track collection attempts to recreate that magical time and--overall--does a decent job. Of course, there are no Beatles tracks (licensing restrictions, you know), but there are plenty of big hits: "Happy Together," "Incense and Peppermints," "Windy," "Respect," "I'm a Believer" and "Good Vibrations" are all No. 1's. [However, "I'm a Believer" and "Good Vibrations" were both hits in 1966; Hip-O should have used "Pleasant Valley Sunday" and "Heroes and Villains" to be historically correct.]

San Francisco--the epicenter of the Summer of Love--is represented by the Jefferson Airplane and Country Joe & the Fish, but where are the Grateful Dead, Moby Grape or Quicksilver Messenger Service? Instead, we get lightweight pop like the Sunshine Company's "Happy" (which didn't even crack Billboard's Hot 100). And how can you have a Summer of Love album without Donovan, who personified the era?

While SUMMER OF LOVE GOLD doesn't get it completely right, this is an enjoyable look back at the music of 1967. RECOMMENDED
