My first CD mix posting! No, I haven't gone all high-tech on your asses. I've not done it before because I can't convert vinyl and I invariably want to use vinyl for mixes. If I have it all on disc, I'll mix on disc, but if I want to include stuff I have only on vinyl, it's still tape for now. (I know there's ways, I'm just technically flummoxed, and thanx for all the kind suggestions.) Here, I was challenged by my teenage son's friend, who dismissed the whole British Invasion out of hand after the Beatles and Stones. You don't have to ask me twice to prepare a lesson. And this was an excuse to raid Rhino's mighty 9-disc History of the British Invasion series, assembled a couple years ago at some expense. I supplemented with 5 trax from other discs (Bowie, Fontana, Action, Tremeloes, BBC Who) to fill out the story. I know this won't be terribly groundbreaking to the knowing types at AOTM, but it's a good 'un for mere mortals and vastly entertained a party of 40-somethings one evening - everyone wanted (and got) a copy. Two Gerry/Pacemaker trax - so sue me. P.S. - My son's friend never played it, but of course his dad flipped.

looks like you've covered the scene well eric...must admit that most of the brit invasion stuff is vastly inferior to what you guys then did in your garages

Outstanding primer! The kid'll never know what he missed and he'll be worse for it....eschewing education is stupid.

Very nice. Many was the time that I had one or more of those Rhino British Invasion discs in my hand at the record store but I knew if I bought one that I'd be overwhelmed with the urge to buy the whole set. Looks like you've done a nice job getting it down to a single disc.

Hey Eric! Happy to see that you're now doing the CD thing -- though some might argue that the CD format is now obsolete! ;) Some incredible songs you've collected here. Your friend's son is doing himself a disservice by not playing it. Is the missing song title Concrete & Clay?
