About this course:

Approximately 50 years ago, a major shift took place in the world of music: we went from a singles-oriented culture to being all about the album. Though the 33 1/3 rpm vinyl record had been introduced in 1948, its dominance over the 45 rpm vinyl single did not begin until the mid-1960s. In this course, we discuss what led to this change in listening, how this change affected musicians and audiences, and why we are now moving back toward a singles-oriented culture. We also listen to some of the greatest albums ever recorded, including Pet Sounds by The Beach Boys, Blue by Joni Mitchell, What's Going On by Marvin Gaye, and Back to Black by Amy Winehouse.
