For those who came of age in the early to mid-sixties this is a must read. If your musical world was shaped during that unique time this is a great journey back to the people and songs that defined the era. Mind you, this is not a gushy, gooey expedition in sixties hero-worshiping nor is it a dry academic tome. “British Invasion” straddles that fine line of being both entertaining and informative.
If you weren’t a product of the sixties you too need to read “British Invasion” to understand how transformative those years were and how they impacted the music of today. The records set back then have yet to be broken and to understand that is to understand that the likes of Adele and Ed Sheeran owe huge debts of gratitude to their countrymen of the sixties.
John Gully does an excellent job reading Simon Philo’s work. All-in-all this is a phenomenal production for anyone who has ever even heard a song from the sixties.
