4-0 out of 5 stars The British are coming
This is the first CD in Rhino Records ambitious History of British Rock series. That title is not really acurate, though, because it doesn't include anything from the pre-Beatles era. Instead, it is focused on recordings from mid-1963 to mid-1965. There are several notable omissions, though, including The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, The Who, The Dave Clark Five and Herman's Hermits. But there is still a lot of good stuff here. You get great offerings from the likes of The Kinks, Peter & Gordon, The Zombies, The Swinging Blue Jeans, The Yardbirds, The Honeycombs and The Searchers. And you also get some lousy offerings from the likes of The Hullaballoos and Tommy Quickly. But I guess by including both the good and the bad, you get a more balanced picture of what the British Invasion was like. Obviously, they couldn't all be winners. I would recommend this CD to anyone who has an interest in the music of the British Invasion.

4-0 out of 5 stars Ambitious Series From Rhino/Capitol/EMI
When this first volume in an ambitious series first appeared in CD format in 1988 it put all but a few CDs at that time to shame because, instead of the usual 10- to 12-track offerings they were giving us 20 and, with each volume, we also got comprehensive liner notes [upwards of 11 pages] whereas most of the others contained nothing in that respect.

But from the advantage of hindsight, and considering that the target audience was mainly those North American fans who experienced the notorious British Invasion, it seems they included with each volume too many selections by British artists who never actually got into an invasion craft, never mind land on the beach.

Here, for example, tracks 16, 17, 19 and 20 made no impact whatsoever over here which means, in effect, it became a 16-track set. Indeed, the only thing by The Ivy League to rate in North America was Tossing And Turning [not to be confused with the Bobby Lewis hit] which reached a lowly # 83 in September 1965 for the Cameo label. No one hear even heard of the other three.

The AAD sound reproduction is generally good to excellent and the notes include several small b&w pictures of some of the artists. Most of the recognizeable hits have since appeared on many more such compilations, although tracks 12 and 15 are not that easy to find in quality, CD format.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great representation of a remarkable musical history
If you enjoyed or want to discover what the British Invasion was about, this series is the best possible way to do it. Each disc is filled with great music. The value is remarkable. There is an enormous number of songs of each disc. These discs are a great addition to anybody's music library and really chart the dramatic change in music brought about by the Beatles whose coattails brought to light numerous other bands as well. ...

4-0 out of 5 stars A nice little collection of early Sixties songs
This is a halfway decent collection of American singles on the eve of the British invasion, but it is limited to only 10 tracks and the big question is going to be whether there are any songs on this CD that you do not already own.But there are seven decent tracks here especially if you like female singers, both solo (Lesley Gore, Dusty Springfield, Connie Francis) and/or "girl groups" (The Angels, The Shangri-Las).Throw into the mix the Singing Nun and the extremely reasonable price and hey, hey, hey (Paula) this could be a keeper for you, especially if half these songs are current absent from your music library. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars This is the real deal
The music is fantastic it brings back memories with each song. Vintage rock n roll..let the good times roll.

4-0 out of 5 stars Some great 60s' fun rock tunes.
About the only thing I didn't like about this CD was the title. There are some real rock essentials on this Rhino CD: "Twist & Shout" and "Shout" by the Isley Brothers, "Tequila" by the Champs, "Liar, Liar" by the Castaways and my personal favorite, "Surfin' Bird" by the Trashmen, to quote Rhino, "among the most inspiringly deranged sounds ever to emerge from a car's dashboard".

Rhino has done their usual great job in producing this CD and it comes with a very informative booklet. ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars Important musical archive, not the best sound quality though
This CD set is obviously not the soundtrack to the Monterey Pop Festival movie, but a larger collection from the three day event. I have a copy of the Monterey Pop Festival on video, and the video's song/set list{not the 4 CD set list} includes: San Francisco (Scott McKenzie) Creeque Alley (Mamas and the Papas) California Dreamin' (Mamas and the Papas) Rollin' and Tumblin' (Canned Heat) Feeling Groovy (Simon and Garfunkel) Bajabula Bonke (Hugh Masekela) High Flyin' Bird (Jefferson Airplane) Today (Jefferson Airplane) Ball and Chain (Big Brother and The Holding Company) Painted Black (Eric Burdon and The Animals) My Generation (The Who) Section 43 (Country Joe and The Fish) Shake (Otis Redding) I've Been Loving You Too Long (Otis Redding) Wild Thing (The Jimi Hendrix Experience) Got A Feelin' (The Mamas and The Papas) Dhun (Ravi Shankar) On the video is the greatest performance I have ever heard (or seen) by the Jefferson Airplane- for two songs: "High Flying Bird" and "Today". In fact most of the bands at this event in Monterey, California performed amazingly! In the past I have tried to dub the vcr video's audio onto cassette tape, to listen to, with unsatisfactory results. So I was disappointed to find that "Today" was not on the CD, and surprised to find the sound quality in general to be poorer on the CD than on the VCR tape for all the songs; with volume drop outs, guitars buried in the mix, and just an unprofessional sounding re-mix of the original live tracks, or perhaps the video's audio tracks were remixed professionally and the CD tracks were left unaltered. I'm guessing in any case, but I know the VCR tape sounded better. I was also dissappointed to find Ravi Shankar's song hacked into an "exerpt" when the original version was nearly 17 mezmerizing minutes long. I was also amazed that the 4-CD set included the "song" titled Bajabula Bonke, which is horrible, and certainly one that could be left out if any song was to be left out. The CD set offers more songs and leaves out many songs available on the video tape, which, by the way, is not available on DVD. In any case, this CD set fills in some more gaps, but is not a complete archival of the 3 day concert event. I'm hoping the full three day event will eventually be released on DVD('s), with more care and attention given to the audio quality for this important musical and cultural event, the first of it's kind, held during the legendary Summer of Love in 1967. If I had limited access to a time machine, the Monterey Pop Festival would definitely be one of my stops. The four CD set includes: Disc One Festival Introduction(John Phillips) Along Comes Mary (The Association) Windy (The Association) Love is a Hurtin' Thing (Lou Rawls) Dead End Street " " " " Tobacco Road (Lou Rawls) San Franciscan Nights (Eric Burdon and The Animals) Hey Gyp (Eric Burdon and The Animals) Rollin' and Tumblin' (Canned Heat) Dust My Broom (Canned Heat) Bullfrog Blues (Canned Heat) Not So Sweet Martha Lorraine (Country Joe and The Fish) Down On Me (Big Brother and The Holding Company(Janis Joplin)) Combination Of The Two "" "" Harry "" "" Road Block "" "" Ball and Chain (Big Brother and The Holding Company)

5-0 out of 5 stars legendary performances..
This four-CD box is expensive but it's surely worth. It's a beautiful example of the best period of the pop, rock and soul music. The box includes the whole concert of Jimi Hendrix, that was historical because it was the first time he played with his Experience in front of the american public. At the Monterey Pop festival, Hendrix played wonderfully and the box also records the final moments when he destroyed his guitar. Also, you will listen the legendary performance of Otis Redding , that unfortunately died few months later for a plane accident. But the box also includes several other groups that, at this moment, were at the best. For instance I love the blues that was played by the Butterfield Blues Band, by the Big Brother & The Holding Company with Janis Joplin, the Canned Heat. Also the performance by Mamas & Papas and the Byrds were extraordinaly . The quality of the recording is excellent and also the booklet, that reports several pictures of the musicians, is really very nice. I hope that one day they will release the WHOLE Monterey Pop Festival, maybe in a box of 15 or 20 Cds.....

5-0 out of 5 stars A review in 4 parts. (Part 1)
This box set shows how important and how great the sound of Monterey Pop was to popular music. It had showed that pop music can now be an art form, along with classical. Unfortuantly, that isn't true about the pop music today. (Damn Britney Spears, she ruined everything!) But, the music on this album isn't what you would call pop. It's very eccentric. THere's pop rock, of course, but there's also soul, blues, pshcheydelia, folk rock, jam rock, swing, and classical. The 1st disc alone shows great variety. I start out my review with this disc

1.John Phillips Introduction-A short intro which sums up the feel of the show. Music, love, flowers.

THE ASSOCIATION

2.Along Comes Mary-The Association start the show playing a more rock version of this song. I espiecially enjoy the flute solo. It's quite silly. There was a little controversy about this song being about marijuana, but I think it's more about hippies than anything else.

3.Windy-This is a great pop song. It's got good harmonies, nice chords, and it rocks near the end. I like the drum beat on this one.

LOU RAWLS

4.Love Is A Hurtin' Thing-Lou Rawls is a great soul singer who, in my opinion, started rap. He had long jive-talk intros which could've influnced rap. This song is probably one of his best.

5.Dead End Street-Another "Rock and soul" song that has a great inro about being in Chicago. Excellent singing.

6.Tobacco Road-LONG intro, but really really cool song. I love it when Lou holds a C note for about 40 seconds.

ERIC BURDON AND THE ANIMALS

7.San Fransico Nights-Eric Burdon and the Animals are a great blues and folk rock band. And when I mean rock, i mean it. This is a pleasent ballad about San Fransico with some sloppy, yet nice guitar solos.

8.Hey Gyp-One of the highlights on the 1st disc. A pshyadelic version of an old Donavan song. Eric's singing is so ood, and the guitars sound like the'yre having sex with each other. Quite good.

CANNED HEAT

9.Rolling and Tumbling-I do't know why I like this band. They sound like any other Blues rock band, but there's something about them. This is a great song. The only cool song to use a polka beat. Very cool.

10.Dust My Broom-How many bands have played this song? Anyway, this is another great blues song with some really clever lyrics. I sure they were improvised on the spot.

11.Bullfrog Blues-Quite interesting. I'm sure this song's about licking frogs. I don't know. But, it's their best song on this album. Pretty fast and cool.

COUNTRY JOE AND THE FISH

12.Not-So-Sweet Marta Lorraine-I always liked Country Joe, but I wished that they had more of them at Monterey. But this is..um, strange. Strange singing, cool solos, and some lyrics about a girl who destroys men. Either that or heroin. I'm not sure.

BIG BROTHER AND THE HOLDING COMPANY

13.Down On Me-When Janis Joplin was in Big Brother, it fealt more like a group than a solo act. But it's still pretty good. This sounds like a 60's British Invasion version of an old traditional song with a banshee singing. It's very very cool.

14.Combination Of The Two-More of a team song, but it's decent. Should do something about the vocal mics though.

15.Harry-Uh.....Ok. Let's move on.

16.Road Block-Probably the best gospel rock song ever. This is the 2nd highlight of the disc. Amazing singing and screaming.

17.Ball And Chain-WHOAH! How does Janis sing like that? I was impressed when I heard this. She loses her voice at the end, so you can tell she was singing with all her voice. Quite powerful.

So ends Disc 1.

3-0 out of 5 stars undeniably historic, but musically, a mixed bag
The importance and far-reaching impact of the original musical mega-fest, Monterey Pop '67, is a fascinating cultural study in it's own right. While I have not seen the video of this event, I have a feeling that it may better convey the mood and significance of the event much better than the music on this box-set does; in fact, the beautiful booklet that accompanies the cds even does a better job at that. The basic problem - a) the sound quality on the bulk of these performances is just not that flattering and b) the bulk of the performances do not show the artists on the top of their game. Before any of you get angry, let me elaborate:

First off, the big exception to the rule is Jimi Hendrix's amazing set, his first performance in the states. This should really be available on it's own - the musicianmanship is top-notch, the song selection is definitive, the engineering is flawless (I'm pretty sure Eddie Kramer himself was on hand to capture this performance) and the closing performance of Wild Thing IS historic AND breathtaking as Jimi smashes his axe to pieces, the trusty stratocaster making noise till the very end. The Mamas and Papas follow Jimi with a surprisingly funky, punchy festival closing set.

Unfortunatley, most of the performances preceding Jimi's set are entirely dispensable and NON-definitive. Don't get me wrong, I am a HUGE fan of bands like Jefferson Airplane and the Byrds, but their sets here are rather sloppy - the likes of which you would never really want to hear twice. These bands are encountering the same problems the Beatles were a year or so earlier: the increasing complexity of their music begins to render it impossible to re-create on stage (at least with the resources they had at the time). This is not to fault the bands in any way; but at the height of the psychedelic era, spending hours in the studio perfecting individual parts, carefully mixing ,and experimenting with new sounds via electronic methods was the norm, leaving the musicans ill-prepared for a live translation of the groundbreaking recordings they were releasing.
This is especially evident in the vocal harmonies. Listen to how AWFUL some of the harmony sounds when the Association tries to pull of "along comes mary" or when the Byrds struggle thorugh "rennaisance fair". It's not because they can't harmonize, but when your used to the cozy acoustics of a studio, and then you try to pull off complex three-party harmony in a huge outdoor venue like Monterey - well you get the idea.
There are exceptions to this besides Jimi: Lou Rawls, a seasoned live performer, turns in an incredibly soulful set. The Who, and Big Brother also prove that they rock out best on stage. But even these tight performances are undermined by the second big problem: sound quality.
Kudos to the engineers for capturing such an historic event on tape - it's definitley no easy task. The main problem here is balance and mixing (a technical note: the "mix" heard on most of these recordings probably reflects the live mix at the time as it was captured on two-track, or maybe four-track tape, therefore making the balance irreversible). Too often the guitars just sound horribly thin; the bass if often barely audible; the drums lack any punch; the vocals are generally placed WAY forward in the mix; when horn sections are used, they sound very close and compressed.

So what's the verdict? Well, I'd say just over a quarter of the music here (the bulk of that being Hendrix) is top-notch, rousing, sixties-revolution-in-full-effect. Also, the booklet is gorgeous. I'd say 'buy it for the pure historical value', but in truth, if you compiled all the Studio versions of every song here, you'd have a much clearer picture of the musical contributions and innovations of these artists (try it!).

If the concept of overwhelming freedom during the nonschool months was invented, musically speaking, in "Summertime, Summertime" by the Jamies in 1958 ("It's time to head straight for the mills / It's time to live and have some thrills"), the Beach Boys' "All Summer Long" and "Girls on the Beach" moved it to the coast, where the surf is, and it rarely returned. "Beach Party," Annette Funicello's big hit, invited us to one, the Sandals' "Theme from 'Endless Summer'" made us long for one in the surf, and in case we had forgotten, the Rivieras reminded us of the importance of the "California Sun," the other side of which is described in Lesley Gore's "California Nights." "The livin' is easy," as we're told in Billy Stewart's version of the Gershwin classic, but we're brought back to reality by the Lovin' Spoonful's hot time, "Summer in the City." In all, there are 18 summer-obsessed songs on this CD, and every one of them rocks, some hard, some soft, from Eddie Cochran's cool guitar to the Jamies' hot harpsichord(!). And they all add up to a perfect escape. --Robert Levine ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Summer Means Fun
This CD is a lot of fun. It features "summer" themed songs from many different genres. There is not a bad song in the bunch here. Many of the songs here are acknowledged classics, like "California Sun", "Summer in the City" and "Summertime Blues". But it also includes some lesser know gems, like "I Live For the Sun", "Beach Party" and "California Nights". This CD is perfect for your summer beach party.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Summer Fun Hits-How about a few more volumes?
This is a really fun compilation of some of the best summer-themed songs around. However, I can think of plenty more that would be great on other volumes-for example; Sealed With A Kiss(preferably the Brian Hyland version), See You In September-The Happenings, Lazy Day-Spanky & Our Gang, Vacation-The Go-Gos, One Summer Night-The Danleers, Summertime USA-The Pixies, Short Shorts-The Royal Teens, Under The Boardwalk-The Drifters-and ON & ON...I have enough songs in mind for at least 2 more volumes-so how's about it, RHINO? Anyway, this is definitely a worthwhile collection to enjoy whether at the beach, lake, pool or just hanging out on your deck or front porch. Let's hope this is re-issued soon. Highly recommended. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Good but not Great
Fours Stars because it is the Sun Story but... I have the vinyl and there are 8 songs that were left off the CD. They left off My Bucket's Got A Hole In It and High School Confidential, which are the two most egregious errors. A guy at Rhino Records told me they didn't get the clearances for the CD. Didn't make sense. Why didn't they get them for all formats? However this is a good start. If you can find the vinyl get it.

5-0 out of 5 stars This CD's RED HOT!
This is the good stuff that put the rock in rockabilly! Hard driving, hard pumping gritty poor-White Rhythm and Blues that is still a lot of fun to listen to nearly 50 years later. All the classics are here. Elvis, Bill, and Scotty doing "That's All Right Mama" (with apologies to Arthur Crudup), Warren Smith's "Ubangi Stomp," Charlie Rich's lovely "Lonely Weekends." Carl Perkins' "Honey Don't," and (to me), best of all, Billy Riley's underground classic "My gal is Red Hot/Your gal ain't doodely squat!" So is this CD! FUN FUN FUN! I DEFY anyone to sit still while listening to this!

5-0 out of 5 stars An Essential Collection of Sun Classics
Sam Phillips and his Sun Records played an integral role during the formative years of rock 'n' roll and artists like Elvis Presley, Carl Perkins, Jerry Lewis, and Roy Orbison belong in any serious music collector's library. What makes this CD of interest to more than merely the casual fan is the inclusion of some of Sun's lesser known artists.

Billy Lee Riley was a session player for Sun, but also recorded with his band The Little Green Men. "Red Hot" is a rambunctious number and with Jerry Lee Lewis on piano, "Flying Saucers Rock 'n' Roll" is an equally raucus number.

The version of "Mystery Train" included here is not Presley's souped-up classic, but a slowed down number by Herman "Junior" Parker with a soulful vocal delivery.

Carl Mann gives the rockabilly treatment to Nat King Cole's 1950 No. 1 hit "Mona Lisa." Mann's version stalled at No. 25

Warren Smith's "Ubangi Stomp" is rockabilly in the Carl Perkins mold. In fact, when I first head this, I thought it WAS Perkins.

So if you're looking for a single disc to illustrate the importance of Sam Phillips and Sun Records, this will do the job more than adequately. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

5-0 out of 5 stars Wild-Eyed Southern Boys Help Bring Rock n' Roll's SUN Up
This is probably the best one-disc collection of material from the legendary Sun Records, where so much of rock's language and spirit began.

Produced and selected by label founder Sam Phillips, it includes the legendary "Class of 55": Carl Perkins (all of whose hits here were George Harrison covers with the Beatles), Jerry Lee Lewis (his four best-known hits), Roy Orbison (whose two debut singles are his weakest) Johnny Cash's signature songs and, back on Sun, Elvis Presley (two from the seminal Sun sessions).

You also get some great early doo-wop from the Prisonaires, two annoying novelty songs from Billy Riley, Charlie Rich's great first hits, Rufus Thomas' "Bear Cat" (a salacious answer to "Hound Dog") and what many consider the first rock n' roll single ("Rocket 88," later reissued on Chess). Until the later Rhino box was released, this stood as the best sounding set of this essential music. It is still recommended for those not willing to make that larger investment.

4-0 out of 5 stars RE-ISSUE
The songs on this package have been issued and re-issued by just about everyone. .On this Rhino compilation the quality of the music is about as good as it gets for SUN product. As with any of the re-issues from the Sun masters there's that ever present tape hiss. This package was mastered from analog to digital in 1987. The tracks are all great and if you don't have any of these cuts in your collection. This one should be on your list. ... Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars Good RCA Compilation (not Sony artists or other labels)
Aunque faltan incluir MUCHISIMAS bandas buenas i.e: Soda Stereo, Patricio Rey y Sus Redonditos de Ricota, Seru Giran, Los Caballeros de la Quema, La Renga, Rata Blanca, Ratones Paranoicos, Sumo, Attaque 77, Spinetta y los Socios del Desierto, Babasonicos ...etc, etc. es un buen compilado de bandas Latinoamaricanas del sello RCA solamente.
En definitiva: Bueno; pero NO COMPLETO. Se debería agregar la compra del CD "Rock Nacional: Obras Cumbres [IMPORT]" (o los CDs de esas bandas).

Vale la pena conocerlas.

P.S: otro muy buen compilado de Rock en Español es el CD doble "30 Años de Rock Nacional" Vol. 1 y Vol. 2. En total 4 CDs (cada uno trae 2 discos) pero en Amazon.com no se vende, al menos hasta el momento).

2-0 out of 5 stars :(................
I THOUGHT I HAD BOUGHT A GREAT ROCK/POP EN ESPANOL CD......BUT I DIDN'T. THEN AGAIN ITS JUST A ROCK EN ESPANOL CD AND SOME OF THE SONGS DATE BACK TO AROUND 1983. THIS IS BEFORE MY TIME AND I AM NOT ACCUSTOMED TO HEARING ROCK EN ESPANOL THAT DATES BACK TO THAT TIME. INSTEAD I THOUGHT I WAS GOING TO GET MUSIC THAT WAS MORE TO DATE, AROUND THE EARLY 90'S..........BUT I WAS WRONG AGAIN. THIS CD IS PROBABLY GOOD ENOUGH FOR YOUR PARENTS.:(

5-0 out of 5 stars The best compilation series of the Rock En Español movement
I find the series of Diez Años de Rock En Tu Idioma the best since it contains the best songs from the rock bands that have been making history in the Rock En Español movement. It features bands works that helped in large to form what is now a genre in its own. I hope that more compilations of this series are made because more and more works of rock bands are contributing to help maintain alive the Rock En Español genre, which will stay with us forever.

5-0 out of 5 stars Impresionante

5-0 out of 5 stars A classic
I bought this cd years ago on a whim and was heartbroken when it was lost during a move. When I finally found it again on Amazon, I grabbed it immediately. It is probably the best collection of modern surfbilly music you will ever hear. Buy it, have a party...you won't regret it.

5-0 out of 5 stars A Contemporary, Nitro-Methane Powered Compilation
After the past couple years of listening to several classic surf compilations, The Ventures, Dick Dale, The Challengers, The Astronauts and Laika & the Cosmonauts, I found this contemporary compilation a real breath of fresh air! It has a good variety of styles and sounds, ranging a from the classic Ventures type sound to psycho-billy, and garage punk a la Ramones. I don't normally like punk and other bizzare stuff due to the unwanted side-effects, (headaches and/or gagging due to repulsive lyrics, headbanging, etc.) but somehow this album captures the positive essences and it works. I appreciated each piece. There wasn't a track on it that I didn't like. Some of it was unexpected and surprizing, but there's power, lots of energy, and excitement. I thought it all worked pretty well together. It's turned me on to a bunch of bands that I now want to explore further, for it now seems I've led an isolated surf life so far....and now I can never go back. This is definitely not bedtime lullaby music. If Quentin Tarantino was to use this music for the basis of a future "Pulp Fiction" sequel, we'd all in for one bizzare, wild ride. May need to be institutionalized in an instru-mental ward.....
All kidding aside, I'd say this is a must-have for anyone that enjoys surf music, as long as your not an elitest, surf-purist, protector-of-surf snob type. If so, steer clear of this one. However, you may not like the future.....I think it sounds like this!

5-0 out of 5 stars A very very good collection
The very best surf music, of this times. The sound is incredible, it is a Hi-Fi CD. So if you like The Aqua Velvets, The Mermen, surf, garage, and lounge music, you'll love this one.

2-0 out of 5 stars Better ways to spend your $
This album has great cover art and a wide variety of sounds. However, the "fun-factor" is seriously lacking on much of it. Sounds range from lazy lounge music to psychotic garage guitar. I don't care for those extremes most of the time, particularly not together. So, I have to skip around a lot with this cd.
Here are the highlights of the album:
Woggles-Fun thrasher reminiscent of Agent Orange's punk-style surf covers.
Halibuts-Very fun and original tune with saxaphone.
Hillbilly Frankenstein-funny, entertaining tune that drifts between a twangy surf-rock sound and la-la lounge music.
Paul Johnson-Excellent electric and acoustic piece at a galloping pace.
Teisco Del Rey-Lots of twang and some saxaphone, too.
Spies Who Surf-Twangy spy and surf, just like it says.
The Ultras-Catchy tune with a lot of pep.
The track by Jon & the Nightriders was disappointing to me because its recording quality is so much poorer than their recording of the same tune on their "Fiberglass Rocket" CD. Jon & the Nightriders are the best surf band out there today (if they have not finally disbanded that is). Their "Moving Target" is one of my favorite albums.
If you want a great compilation of modern surf bands, however, buy "Surfin' Senorita." ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars A Curb Cheap-O With A Couple Of Bona-Fide Hard-To-Finds
As a completist collector of hit singles I bought this one for two selections: Sacred by The Castells [# 20 in 1961] and Precious And Few by Climax [# 3 in 1972] - both bona-fide hard-to-find hits.

The rest can be found on any number of compilations, some of which also provide you with liner notes and chart performnces. This one does neither. The 10-selection CD is also fast going the way of the dinosaur. Unless you absolutely need to have either of the two hits I mention above, you are better off to spend a few dollars more and seek out the others on a decent 18- to 20-selection CD. ... Read more

Hey, the track listing here has the songs listed in the wrong order.I won't bother to correct it, because it's the same songs, just in a different order.Anyway, this is another CD containing songs by British Invasion groups.Song quality is generally good, there aren't any flat out awful songs here.Two rare songs that are great are "In the Hall of the Mountain King" by Sounds Incorporated and "Making Time" by The Creation.Of course, there also some great songs by well known performers like The Searchers, Manfred Mann, The Kinks, The Hollies, The Troggs, The Yardbirds and Donovan.Even "Do the Freddie" by Freddie & The Dreamers isn't too bad.It's a stupid song, but it has a dopey charm to it.Anyone who has an interest in the British Invasion should dig this CD. ...

3-0 out of 5 stars A Tribute To Genesis - 'The Fox Lies Down' various artists
As for tribute albums go,this one is so-so.Some of the decent tracks include DaevidAllen&Solid Sound Space's take on "Visions Of Angels",the dream-like Flower Kings covering "Cinema Show" and Darxtar's remake of "Dancing With The Moonlit Knight".There are,however two truly outstanding cuts,Mother Gong's version of "In The Beginning" and Architectural Metaphor delivering their powerful brilliance to the progressive gem "The Waiting Room".Check out some of the other tribute CD's that've been released by the Cleopatra label,like the King Crimson and Neu! ones.

4-0 out of 5 stars Some different arrangements
I like tribute albums better when the bands take a few chances, do some things differently. My least favorite song on here is probably "Visions of Angels," which pretty much replicates the original. I think the lesson to be learned here is not to try and copy a great band like Genesis, or you'll end up sounding pretty bad. "Your Own Special Way" is absolutely lugubrious. John Wetton, what are you doing?? You used to be in King Crimson and Asia, and now you're doing "" tribute albums! (Mr. Wetton also shows up on Steve Hackett's Genesis tribute and the ELP tribute album). Those two, for me, are the two low points. However, there's a lot to like here as well. Brand X do justice to "Can-utility and the Coastliners," always one of my favorite early Genesis songs. The version of Carpet Crawlers" is pretty cool, some catchy rhythem guitar over a drum machine beat...something different anyway. "In the Beginning" from Genesis' first album is very, very different from the original. It's made into a kind of techno-art rock song with strange vocals. Decent stuff...again, different yet kind of cool.

The best stuff is on the second half of the disc. "Dancing with the Moonlit Knight" is given a modern prog sound. The band incorporates the awesome "DwtMK" coda, which eventually turns into a spacey jam, and then ends by playing one of Tony's organ riffs from "Supper's Ready." Good stuff. There's a metal version of "Giant Hogweed" which is okay. There's a pretty good version of "Cinema Show" by the neo prog band 'Flower Kings,' but it fades out, as one reviewer noted, right before it seems like the band are about to really jam. My favorite two tracks are the last two. Controlled Bleeding do a great version of "Broadway Melody," making the musical section much longer than on the orginal off the Lamb Lies Down. Then, the band do justice to the vocal section, and eventually the song ends oddly enough with the acoustic riff from "Eleventh Earl of Mar," which is rather haunting and makes a great effect. Then, another great neo-prog band called Architectural Metaphor (who also made an appearance on the King Crimson tribute with a great version of Cirkus) does an awesome "Waiting Room." My favorite part of the song is the ending, when the band goes into an absolutely maniacal version of "Aisle of Plenty." Never listen to it with the lights off would be my advice.

All in all, this tribute is light years better than the other tribute that I know of called "Supper's Ready: Songs of Genesis." If you're debating which tribute to buy, definitely let this be the one.

1-0 out of 5 stars One good track
Sorry to say this CD mostly sounds like an high school jazz/rock ensemble's rehearsal. "Cinema Show" is where it comes together, but it too is flawed because the ending on even this one good track seems to have been chopped-off(sort of like a radio station that miscalculates available air time and fades out the ending of a song to get the mandatory station ID in).

Save your money; or buy it only if this ever turns up in a bargain bin.

4-0 out of 5 stars not too bad, but not too good, either
I got this album, basically, as an experiment; i wanted to seewhat kind of twist the groups on this album would put to the Genesismusic i was used to. Brand X's version of "Can-Utility...", my personal all-time favorite Genesis song, really impressed me. John Ford's version of "The Carpet Crawlers" was a teriffic version of a boring song. The keyboarding in "Los Endos" was real nice, too. Rounding out a few of my other favorites: "Visions of Angels", "Cinema Show", and "Broadway Melody...". However, John Wetton's version of "Your Own Special Way" was AWFUL boring. Also, there was too much cut out of "The Giant Hogweed" and "Dancing With the Moonlit Knight"; those songs just didn't sound right. Overall, a good album to get if you have $15 burning a hole in your pocket.

4-0 out of 5 stars Excellent covers of some classic Genesis songs
Like the albums "Supper's Ready:Another Serving from The Musical Box" and Steve Hackett's recent "Watcher of the Skies" this collection features a group of artists covering material from Genesis' early days as a progressive rock band. There are some fine covers here, from artists including Brand X (not including sometime member Phil Collins) and Patrick Moraz (formerly of Yes). These are excellent versions of some classic songs, and ironically, this collection covers roughly the same span of years that the recent Genesis box set does! ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Having All In The Series Will Give You Some Of The Best
As indicated in my review of Volume 1, the Rhino/Capitol/EMI collaboration was an ambitious one in those early days of CDs, and if you can get your hands on all nine volumes you will have most of the major impact selections by artists in those heady days of the British Invasion.

However, in this fifth installation they continue their habit of including selections by artists who were certainly NOT among the prominent ones to take part in the so-called invasion. Only displaced Brits will have heard of The Big Three [track 4], The Mojos [track 7], The Pretty Things [trrack 11], and The Merseybeats [track 16]. Also, while it's nice to hear Van Morrison in his Them incarnation on Gloria, why include the B-side [track 10] instead of, say, Here Comes The Night?

On the other hand, it's great to get two early Beatles' cuts like Ain't She Sweet [recorded in 1961 and released in 1964 in North America by Atco - # 19] and My Bonnie which, with Tony Sheridan, was recorded in 1962 and released here by MGM in 1964 [# 26], along with hard-to-find selections such as Shout by Lulu & The Luvers [# 94 in 1964 before she embarked upon a solo career], You've Got Your Troubles by The Fortunes [# 7 in 1965], and Georgie Fame's Yeh Yeh [# 21 in 1965].

Ten pages of liner notes by John Mendelssohn are interspersed with small b&w photos of The Beatles, Fame, Wayne Fontana & The Mindbenders, Petula Clark, The Bachelors, The Moody Blues, The Merseybeats [at least we get to know what they LOOKED like], and Donovan.

As with the other volumes the AAD sound reproduction ranges from adequate to excellent.

4-0 out of 5 stars Dazzling sound quality, Insightful docomentation, and a Rari
There's little point in telling you if "The British Invasion (The History of British Rock)" is "good" or "bad." That would be pretty silly: you're quite capable of reading the track list for yourself, and making that determination. What you will find with each of these discs is exceptional audio quality, superb packaging and documentation, and an historical musical surprise.

Similar compilations are available in grocery and drug stores, and also from TV ads for five or six bucks each. As usual, one gets what one pays for, and these "budget" discs are usually unrecognizable "B" sides: the sound quality is atrocious. On the other hand, the audio quality of the Rhino compilations is stunning. Remastered by Bill Inglot and Ken Perry, it is difficult to believe that these recordings are more than thirty-years old. Rhino does a remarkable job of combing recording libraries for first-rate master tapes, then engineering these recordings to CD. I have yet to be disappointed with a Rhino "oldies but goodies" release. The sonics are immaculate - like hearing some of your favorites for the first time.

Also, each disc is packaged in a jewel case with a complete and interesting history of the songs presented: information included is the artist, composer and release date.

The surprise of "The British Invasion" is that several tracks from each disc did not, repeat did not "invade" America. Some songs "charted" in the UK, but failed to make the Top-100 in America. For collectors of British popular music, it is fascinating to note the difference between British and American tastes. The "odd" tracks may not have entered Billboard's Top-100, but there not "throwaway" either. Dazzling sound quality, insightful documentation, and a few "rarities." In my book, that ain't too shabby.

4-0 out of 5 stars What are you guys complaining about? This disc is great...
Actually this whole series is awesome. Looking at Vol. 5 in particular, though, I'm seeing 4 U.S. #1 hits, by the Tornados, Pet Clark, the Mindbenders, and Donovan. Pretty diverse. Rhino circumvents Capitol's oppressive licensing restrictions to bring us 2 hard-to-find, early Beatles singles recorded for other labels. (The other reviewers are right, however. Using Ringo's pic is misleading since he wasn't in the group then.) There are goodies by the three grand dames of British rock--Pet, Dusty Springfield (get her solo albums too), and Lulu. For pure rock classicism, if there is such a thing, there are 2 (count 'em) by Them. That's Van Morrison to most of us (but the drummer on "Gloria," likely Patrick McAuley, deserves equal credit). And the Moody Blues, before they went all symphonic, with "Go Now!", which they left off their first twelve greatest hits albums. You know you need "It's Not Unusual", kitsch of the highest order and I think the only Tom Jones hit on this whole series. One of the long-term pleasures of this series is the one- and two-hit wonders like Georgie Fame, the Bachelors, and the Big Three. In all seriousness, these make the series invaluable. True pop music fans should be buying the Beatles, Stones, and Who albums separately anyway; those groups' absences leave room for the lost classics that Rhino specializes in preserving on discs like this one. This mix of melodic rock and pop and, umm, Chad and Jeremy needs to be owned by everyone.

3-0 out of 5 stars Where is Pete Best?
This compilation features a five star Beatle track called A'int She Sweet, with Pete Best on drums. What in the heck Ringo Starr is doing on the album cover is anybody's guess. I thought that the people at Rhino records were supposed to be acurate rock historians. The rest of the album is filler. I recommend The Beatles Anthology One instead.

4-0 out of 5 stars a mixed bag, but..
In 1988, Rhino released four volumes of the British Invasion. These were great (even w.o. the Beatles, Stones, DC5 and early Animals), and probably led to this expansion to 9 volumes. Actually, Volume 5 is the weakest of the lot, and IS all over the map. But it does compile some great sides, and there ARE unfamiliar/undiscovered jems: "Shout" by Lulu, "Before and After" by Chad & Jeremy, "I Think Of You" by the Merseybeats, "Everything's Allright" by the Mojosm and "Yeh,Yeh" by Georgie Fame. If you're really interesteed in 60s British pop, you'll want to hear these, and I guarantee you'll have a hard time finding these elsewhere.

I highly reccomend the first four volumes of this series; I would give each of them 5 stars. Get those first. But if you're really into British pop, you'll want this, despite the inclusion of a dud like My Bonnie by Tony Sheridan (with "those guys"). Have to believe that this was a sin committed to have the Beatles included in the series. Greedy Capital wasn't going to let Rhino lease any of THEIR material. Also, the next four volumes improve on this one. ... Read more

Excellent 50's rock and rockabilly by some of the names that made these forms what they are. Elvis's work here is probably the best of his career. In an album brimming with great songs, my favorites are Elvis's "Mystery Train", Johnny Cash's "Folsom Prison Blues", Jerry Lee's "Great Balls of Fire" and Bill Justis's classic instrumental "Raunchy". If there's a low point (and even it is pretty high), it's Carl Mann's odd rockabilly remake of "Mona Lisa". Ideal for get-togethers or by-yourselfs - pick it up! ... Read more
