When the Happy Together Tour rolls into town, a beautiful kind of magic trick occurs. For just a little while, the cares of the current world seem somehow to melt away as the sound of a free, colorful era long gone rises up in the air once more. It gives us all a glimpse of what it was like to live in that golden moment of the 1960s, when the glorious vocal harmonies of The Turtles and their contemporaries came bursting out of just about every radio and jukebox in America.
When these ’60s pop/rock compatriots on the bill step up to the microphone, the years melt away as the hits of the Aquarian Age come back around. It’s enough to make even the most jaded listener believe in the possibilities of flower power again – for at least as long as the concert lasts.
