Some music LP covers are erroneous
I was very excited to see some of the original cover art for the albums that were featured, but some are obviously not correct. The Beatles covers are reproduced more than once, and anthology versions were also used in place of the original issue. Some albums, like those from Smokey and Roy, also had covers that came out only much, much later as compilations (The Millennium Collection, or The Essential series). It would be great to see these inconsistencies resolved with a fix in the next version.
This app gives so much, hours and hours of pleasure for us 'baby boomers' and great history, " you are there" platform for our children. I can't believe that this app is priced so low, I would have paid much more for it. A superb job, this is what iPad is all about.
I was a kid in the 60s so really didn't know what all was going on back then. The music attracted me here and the concert footage is AWESOME. Then I learned why the music was so provocative. So were the times! The videos, the history... Wow!
It's definitely engaging to feel like you're getting a view of the 60s firsthand. Cool app!
