It had to happen - half a century on from The Summer of Love.

Kicking off we have a decent compilation from Ace Records - 48 tracks compiled by writer Jon Savage. I'll be interested to see if he considers 1967 a more interesting year than the one before. He does say - and describes it as the year pop divided - it marks the time that LPs made more money than 45s.

I've not heard any of this CD (unless, of course, some nice person from Ace Records is reading and asks me to send my name and address in), but the list looks as attractive as usual - the usual Ace combination of unexpected, obscure, uncovered mini-masters, and even a few genuine hit reccuds.
