If, to you, the ’60s is a decade to revere and mythologize, the two disc Haight-Ashbury in the Sixties! will, like, blow your mind. With music by the Grateful Dead, you’re transported back to a persistent swirl of rampant psychedelia, the San Franciscan kind — with Day-Glo colors and undulating shapes. Meet a nun who adored pot brownies. In a narrated history, hear about an unrealized plan to form a human pentagram of spell-casting hippies around the Pentagon. Click on the ”Tune In” mode and see old news footage of author Ken Kesey. Yes, there should have been more about the hows and whys of wild drugs and free love, but here is a monument to a supposedly unfettered people, created with more than enough peace and love. B+
