Time in a Bottle: Singer/Songwriters of the '60s and '70s (UMC)

The 1960s and ’70s saw an explosion of “Singer/Songwriters”, including artists such as James Taylor, Simon and Garfunkle, America, Jim Croce, Joni Mitchell, Carol King, Crosby, Stills, Nash, & Young and more, releasing hit after hit on American radio. Ushering in a lighter rock era that still remains on heavy rotation today at stations across the country.
