The romantic decade: 1964-74

A spirit of romanticism left its mark on much of the 1960s’ musical output. Starting with Bob Dylan’s suddenly personal lyrics on Another Side of Bob Dylan (1964) and ending with the death of Nick Drake in 1974, much of the music produced during these ten years was filled with the introspection, emotion, poetry and pastoralism so typical of another century’s romanticism, as well as a vital interest in folk roots.

Tonight’s episode of Vintage Party explores this 20th-century romanticism through music from North America, England and France.
