Originally released in 2007, Rhino's Love Is The Song We Sing: San Francisco Nuggets 1965-1970 box set celebrates The 40th Anniversary Of "The Summer Of Love." Over forty years ago the world turned its ears toward San Francisco as a wave of talented bands gave birth to the American counterculture. This incredible box set remembers that magical confluence of time and place with 4-CDs of classics and rarities from the golden age of Golden State rock. The 77 tracks heard here share little beyond an artistic adventurousness long encouraged in the City by the Bay (which was a magnet for free thinkers from the days of the Beats). Featuring legends such as the pre-Grateful Dead group The Warlocks, the original line-up of the Jefferson Airplane, a pre-hit Grass Roots, influential existentialists The Charlatans, Country Joe & The Fish, Sly Stone, and Santana alongside local hits from the fertile garage-rock underground, it's an ideal reminder for those who were there and a proper introduction to those who wish they were.
