ITEM#: 2536575Includes liner notes by Richie Unterberger. Liner Note Authors: Marshall McLuhan; Andy Warhol; Robert F. Kennedy; Richie Unterberger. This volume of Casey Kasem's America's Top Ten series focuses on the folk-tinged pop of the 1960s, drawing heavily from the perennial classics, but including a few "deep cuts" as well. There's defining material like the Byrds' timeless "Mr. Tambourine Man," "Get Together," from the Youngbloods, the youthful yearn of the Grass Roots' "Let's Live for Today," and Barry McGuire's angry, helpless "Eve of Destruction." Donovan's dippy "Mellow Yellow" and the name-checking fun of Peter, Paul and Mary's "I Dig Rock and Roll Music" skew a bit lighter, while Judy Collins ("Both Sides Now") gets melodramatic, and the Lemon Pipers ("Green Tambourine") chew on psychedelic bubblegum. This is all standard fare for oldies radio (and can Van Morrison's "Brown Eyed Girl" really be called folk? It seems like a concession to sales here), but tracks from Spanky and Our Gang, We Five, and the Rooftop Singers offer a slightly lesser-known -- yet no less enjoyable -- layer to the set. '60s aficionados will have everything here already. But America's Top Ten is perfect for the casual listener. ~ Johnny Loftus
