In the early 1960s the dominant political culture in the West
had settled back to being largely conservative, after the
upheavals of the Rock n Roll era. Nevertheless R n R had
energised a whole youth generation and given it something to
celebrate. But mainstream Pop at this time was not the Pop of
'protest' - protest in music was still centered around Folk
music and a Folk culture largely dominated by Bob Dylan.
But there was massive domestic change coming and many
casual factors driving it.
