Most of what I know of the 1960’s and 70’s I’ve found out from books, video footage and old people. Even so, the imagination is the best place for reconstructing what it must have been like to actually experience the world then. Slipping on some big headphones, playing a record, closing your eyes and letting the sound wash over you gives your subconscious mind the opportunity to pick up on all sorts of tiny nuances. You can build a mental picture which is impossible to describe to someone else, so you keep telling them they need to feel it for themselves.
This is where The Peppermint Beat Band reside.
