A new insight into the 1960s British recording groups, trios and duos that helped to shape the sounds of the sixties and although the vast majority of these groups never set foot on North American shores, they were very much a part of what came to be known as The British Invasion. An ambitious work chronicling the stories of over 930 British recording groups, trios and duos from the '?60s who released at least one single in the U.K. between January 1962 and December 1966 . For many, it includes members of the groups, where they were from, and a brief history from its origins to its breakup. There is an index of nearly 1,700 referenced singles along with approximately 300 images, many of which were previously unseen. As a reference work for music of the period, this volume will appeal to a broad spectrum of music enthusiasts, including members and associates of the bands featured.
