The British Invasion: History of British Rock, Vol. 6

The British Invasion: History Of British Rock, Vol. 6


Volumes six through nine in British Invasion: History of British Rock appeared three years after the initial five volumes, and appropriately they pick up in the late '60s, where the original installments ended. In general, these later volumes rely more on obscurities, forgotten singles and British hits than their predecessors, but Vol. 6 is the exception to the rule. Certainly, there are a few gems that will be unknown to casual fans -- cuts by the Eyes, Unit 4 Plus 2, the Bachelors and Dave Berry -- but most of the record is devoted to hits, either by major artists like the Hollies ("Look Through Any Window," "On a Carousel"), Them ("Here Comes the Night," "Mystic Eyes"), Dusty Springfield ("Wishin' and Hopin'"), the Walker Brothers ("Make It Easy On Yourself") and the Small Faces ("Sha-La-La-La-Lee," "My Mind's Eye") or one-hit wonders the Tremeloes ("Here Comes My Baby"), the Foundations ("Baby, Now That I've Found You"), the Silkie ("You've Got to Hide Your Love Away"), Lulu ("To Sir With Love") and the Mindbenders ("A Groovy Kind of Love"). Again, the end result is a collection that captures the feeling and sound of the era, and offers an important chapter of pop music history. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine, Rovi
