“Jon Sav­age’s 1965: The Year the Six­ties Ig­nited (2CD) ACE

Exclaim! - - NEWS -

Fe­bru­ary 9. The se­cond “book-end” to Jon Sav­age’s hugely pop­u­lar 1966 Faber book and Ace com­pi­la­tion and to last year’s “1967” CD fol­low-up, this pre­quel dou­ble CD based around 1965 rep­re­sents the lead up and con­text to all that was about to hap­pen. A genre-span­ning mix of hit sin­gles, slow burn­ers and lost gems from soul, funk, psych, garage and rock’n’roll, th­ese are the 45s that de­fined the year, cap­tured the mood and crys­tallised Jon Sav­age’s per­sonal mem­o­ries of the year. Dy­lan, denim, soft drugs and po­lit­i­cal dis­af­fec­tion, 1965 saw the death of Churchill and the rise of civil rights. 1965 was the year the six­ties ig­nited.
