The sound of a country trying to work its way out of a crisis. Compiled by Bob Stanley and Pete Wiggs, State of the Union follows on from their highly acclaimed English Weather and Paris in the Spring compilations. State of the Union includes rare classics, lost masterpieces and forgotten gems by some of the biggest names in the business. With clear parallels between today's fractured country and the USA fifty years ago, this is a fascinating condensation of what Americans were thinking when they turned on the TV or the radio, or simply walked down Main Street in 1968.
