In 1971 I was spinning vinyl at a college AM radio station, with shoulder length hair, mustache and a PBR in hand. I met my future spouse there! ;) I look forward to this series!

Just perhaps a smidge boomerific. Although "All Things Must Pass" *is* a great album.

If you want to listen to the Moog synthesizer in all its glory look up “Switched on Bach” by Wendy Carlos who also was involved with the music with Disney 1982 Tron.
And, in 1971, the soundtrack to "A Clockwork Orange." But I'm guessing Apple wouldn't put much focus on that one.

Hippies ?
Weird comment on a variety of levels, the least of which is how judgmental it is. Most what comes to mind is how wrong it is. Even if you did not use "hippies" in a negative context, the word, colloquially, doesn't even relate to a lot of this music.

Also launching the music change was the low cost Minimoog synthesizer for $1,600 much cheaper than the $10,000 predecessor. Nearly all music now is artificial with just a few real live instruments.
We did have a return to acoustical unplugged music a while.
What is killing music today is the over use and extreme auto tune with singers.
