Take a time-tripping visit back to the pop songs of the psychedelic era with legendary artists in "Rock Rewind: 1967-1969," an all-new retrospective from the MY MUSIC series.

The late 60s was a period of change and excitement, with youthful sounds on the radio that echoed peace and protest, relevance and romance.
