California Dreaming Playlist

For those of you who are interested in my next music book (the one I Kickstartered on the LA pop scene of the 60s), here’s a playlist of the rough list of tracks I’ve chosen to write about.

There are sixty tracks in all, starting in 1960 with Moon Dawg by the Gamblers, and progressing through Jan & Dean, the Beach Boys, the Monkees, Frank Zappa, Van Dyke Parks, Captain Beefheart, The Modern Folk Quartet, The Turtles and more, ending in 1971 with Willin’ by Little Feat.

Have a listen, and let me know what obvious track I’ve missed — though remember these are chosen to tell the story, rather than as necessarily the best songs from those bands.
