The music scene was vibrant, boosted by the arrival of the pirate radio stations.

 Stockhausen Electronic Music 1952 -1960   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
Overall, however, the music is somewhat muted and restrained in its liveliness, and does not easily involve the listener throughout its entire duration – notwithstanding the attractive features in its soundscape.
The electronic music now sounds highly varied and colorful, and the musical composition as a whole is attractive and fascinating in its complexity.
Listening to the flow of the music in KONTAKTE and how the composer achieves it is a spectacular experience, and the immaculate embedding of all the sounds into this flow is what, for a large part, gives them their special power and meaning.

 1960's Music Project
In some cases, music was even intended to try to change certain behaviors of the listeners.
It went beyond feelings, the music was meant to create an emotional reaction that could possibly even lead to physical action in one way or another.

 Japanese Art, 1960s / MUSIC
Some thought that music should be freed from its status as a human possession, trying to make it music of "all the universe." Others tried to make musical expression transcend the level of the ego.
That is because a modern music festival was held in August of that year, organized by the 20th Century Music Institute, led by Mr.
At that festival, experimental avant-garde music by such composers as John Cage, Morton Feldman, Earle Brown, Christian Wolff, and Stefan Wolpe was performed, as well as one of my works, as I had come back to Japan expressly for the purpose of the festival.

 FIU Libraries -- Encyclopedic Discography of Cuban Music 1925-1960
Mention of 45s is quite limited, since, as a rule, when Cuban music was issued, there was a simultaneous printing in 78rpm, often with the same serial number, but with a 45 or 78 placed in front or at the end, accordingly.
Among other companies that produced recordings of Latin music, were Okeh, Vocalion, and Brunswick, which later became part of Columbia, and, as a result, in the aforementioned archives there are references to many pertinent recordings.
Ansonia: This recording label was devoted to Latin music, and apparently lost its archives in a fire.

 1960 's Music Copyright
Reason, if the music composition is published then the "copyright" notice has to appear elsewhere, most likely on your printed sheet music, so its absence on the record label is inconsequential to otherwise protected work.
The term of protection is from the time your music copyright was secured (ie at first publication), not the year the record was pressed because the music encased in the vinyl is a derivative product not to be considered a new creation.
Prior to February 15, 1972 the EXCLUSIVE right to the commerical exploitation of music was solely held by the composer, and included any media he chose to convey his copyrighted creation to the awaiting public:

The music is fantastical too: There is no way to know what's going to bubble up next, but it is always surprising, inevitable, and vividly orchestrated.
He goes on to call the music "haunting," "inventive," with "bursts of Varesian frenzy" and "atomic minimalism." The maid scenes are "puzzling" and there were balance problems in the sound (also reported by In the Wings).

 Home From The Hill (1960): Music Composed by Bronislau Kaper: Film Music on the Web CD Reviews May 2003   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
Bronislau Kaper’s opening musical gambit is infused with broad Americana – a main theme altogether embodying the feel of wide-open spaces and the essence of pioneer spirit.
In fact this music should be considered as a classic score.
Few composers for film ever carried quite the substantive symphonic weight that Kaper can bring to a subject, and here his music carries a bulk, a force, and a dynamism that speaks drama in volumes even before we get to the plot and the dialogue.
