RESOURCES

 

There is an amazing wealth of sixties resources available on- and off-line. Here are some of the resources I use on a regular basis in putting together Sixties Sojourn programmes. 

Great Resource Websites

An incredible website that is devoted to everything that is The Beatles. It even details the album and single releases specific to each country. This is my go-to place when I’m researching Beatles albums and songs. Definitely worth a visit and bookmarking.

An amazing labour of love is all too evident in this site. According to the site, “The main idea… is to trace the original versions of songs recorded by Australian artists, mostly from the 50s, 60s and 70s.” I couldn’t count how many times this site has saved the day in helping script Sixties Sojourn.

Of course I use Wikipedia. People may have a go at it, but I’ll wager that every single one of those people use it at least once a week. Oh, and I’m an annual financial contributor to Wikipedia. I encourage everyone to contribute each year when they see the annual fund raiser.

A valuable site for checking and cross-checking on the original version of songs, and discovering interesting covers – especially those that are in non-English languages. Note: This is across all music and not just the sixties. Definitely worth a look and a bit of an explore.
