CD Reviews

David V. Daniels | 11/22/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Those were the words spoken by Walter Cronkite at the end of the CBS Evening News. For some of us,too young to be in Saigon,or preoccupied with the latest dalliances of Lisa Hughes,(As The World Turns)Walter Cronkite was the eyes and ears of perhaps the most turbulent decade of the 20th Century. In I Can Hear It Now,we are given a review through Cronkite's narration as well as through the CBS News Archives, of the 1960's. How many people were tuned into AS THE WORLD TURNS November 22,1963 when the fateful bulletin from Dallas flashed into our living rooms? This CD brings you right there.Perhaps for some this is the defining moment of the sixties,but I Can Hear it Now brings you ALL of the voices and events of the time...King,the Beatles,Rachel Carson,Neil Armstrong. This is a must have for history and pop culture buffs. Also gives one an idea of what CBS News was at one time-probably the best source of news at the time."
The sounds of history

"For those too young to have been old enough to remember the 60s, these recordings probably won't have the same impact as they have on us that lived through them and saw/heard them as they happened.

All of the really momentous happenings are captured in this collection of sound clips of the 60s. Listening to all these events seems almost unreal knowing what we know now. The 60s were world changing times.

In spite of the threat of nuclear war, we really were in a much more innocent world.

How it really was

"In these days of revisionist history, with CNN being so busy trying to bash the government they can't be bothered to actually broadcast the news, a CD like this ought to be required listening for everybody. We'll just make the same mistakes over and over again if we turn our backs on our country's past, as so many people under 35 seem anxious to do. In fact, this gem ought to be cheaper so no matter how broken your "fixed income," is, you can afford this. Cronkite had no equal in his own time. his only superior was his mentor, Edward R. Murrow, who also did an "I can hear it Now," album, about 1919--49, now sadly out of print. This is a must own."
