1968 certainly was an incredible year. We had highs, like orbiting the moon and tragic lows like losing Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. This album is an amazing find, with all the news clips from throughout the year. The headlines remind me of our current times, full of turmoil and tragedies, stuff you just can’t believe, like Bobby Kennedy was shot, the democratic convention riot n Chicago and a hijacked airplane. The disc also features highlights from celebrity civil rights speeches, like one from Sammy Davis Jr.’s.
