Thanks Roy. An outstanding piece withe great detail. So many memories. The Brits rocked not only America but the world.
Life, as with music, often requires one to let go of the melody and listen to the rhythm

Excellent! I just saw the first two parts...saving the rest for tomorrow.

I've seen many Brit Invasion documentaries. This is the first one that focuses

more on the "invaders" perspective on what it was like to experience America

rather to the Americans' reaction to them. Thanks for posting this Roy!

Just finished watching all four parts, and thoroughly enjoyed every minute. A great trip down memory lane.

Thanks for posting these clips - very well done!

That was really interesting to hear these stories from the English point of view, from the musicians who were there. Thanks, Roy.

It's nearly 48 years since that fateful first Ed Sullivan show. I still recall being swept up by all things 'Brit' back then. Thanks for posting these, Roy. It's interesting to hear the various bands' points of view of the US.

Uhhh, BTW, did anyone else think that the Austin Powers 'look' was modeled on Peter Asher? Tom

Yeah, when I saw the closeup, I thought the same exact thing...almost dead ringers except for the hair color!

On the other hand :lol:...I can't believe how great Jackie DeShannon looks :shock: !!! What a talent, what a doll!!!

Thanks from me too, Roy!
As so many others said, great to see Jackie de Shannon looking so good - and quite a shock to see Burdon and Peter Asher, to name but two, looking so old... Anyone know where the (60s) film of Graham Nash and Peter Noone arguing came from? I've never seen it before, and it's not the kind of thing that was allowed out as a general rule. And a final thought - while I love the CSN version of Teach Your Children, the Hollies could have done a great job on it too.
