In the world of top hits oldies music back in the beginning of the 1960’s, rock and roll was on the decline. It was being absorbed into the mainstream, and evolved into something called “Teen Beat”. R&B music, fortunately was still very vibrant and less controllable, thus appealing to both black and white teenagers.

British musicians who are R&B and rock and roll lovers created the Mersey Beat and the British R&B boom. In 1964, America was swooning over the foremost exponents of the Mersey Beat, The Beatles. They also swooned to the music of other British acts, and this music phenomenon is called the British Invasion.

By 1967, rock musicians began taking their music seriously, and they concentrated on releasing albums instead of singles. There was a lot of experimentation that went on which widened the horizon of rock music. It was the decade of The Beatles, Bob Dylan, The Rolling Stones, Motown’s many great artists, and countless other performers who laid the ground rules for rock in the last three decades of the century.

The 60s was a time of social unrest, Vietnam war protest, the civil rights movement, and this was reflected in the oldies music of this era.

There was also a lot of musical styles that emerged in the 60’s. Among them were the twist (Chubby Checker), surf music (The Beach Boys), soul (James Brown), bubble-gum (The Royal Guardsmen), psychedelia (The Who), folk rock (Bob Dylan), and other rock-related forms of music. Music that are middle of the road, and ballads also thrived, performed by singers such as Connie Francis and the Everly Brothers. The Sixties is a decade that has improved with age — without doubt an exciting musical era unlike any that had proceeded it.
