Summary:
Annotation

Explores the British music phenomenon in 1960s America with hundreds of photos, some never-before-published.

Annotation

This lavish book, featuring many previously unseen photographs, reproductions of newspaper front pages and other visuals, covers the events leading up to moment when British music exploded on to the American scene and Beatlemania went Transatlantic. The first book of its kind to look in depth at the phenomenon of the British Invasion, it also covers all the bands subsequent to the Beatles that have made it big in the States. While much has been made of the influence American rock'n'roll had on UK bands, until now little has been said on the way British music influenced American culture.  Read more...
