Although the collection doesn't include tracks from the Beatles, the Rolling Stones, the Who, Herman's Hermits, the Dave Clark Five, and the early Animals, their absence doesn't hurt the series, since it spotlights several artists who never had more than a handful of hits, plus many forgotten gems. The collection runs from the beginnings of Merseybeat to the aftermath of psychedelia, meaning that it chronicles the evolution of British pop/rock quite effectively. But The History of British Rock shouldn't be thought of as simply an educational overview of one of the most vital eras of pop; each volume is fun and exciting, and sounds more like a good time than a history lesson. The series is one of the cornerstones of any comprehensive pop/rock collection.

Rhino's nine-volume British Invasion: History of British Rock is the most comprehensive overview of British pop music in the '60s ever assembled. Over the course of nine discs, the series traces the evolution of British pop from Merseybeat through psychedelia to heavy metal and soft-rock. If you need a picture of the first explosions of the British Invasion, this is the disc to get.

Volume One covers 20 songs from 1964 and 1965. In volume one you get Kinks, Zombies, Yardbirds, etc. but when is the last time you heard "I'm telling you now" by Freddie & the Dreamers? or "Don't let the sun catch you crying" by Gerry & the Pacemakers? Highly Recommended. As a fan of British Invasion music, I think this is an excellent compilation and well worth the money.

While British rock music was developing in the early 60s, a style called "surf music" was developing in Los Angeles. American-Lebanese guitarist Dick Dale was creating an exciting new style of instrumental rock by mixing Middle-Eastern music with rock and roll. He used reverb to create a guitar sound that was also used by the Beach Boys, surf music's most successful band. The Beatles' experimentation and creative freedom led other bands to experiment in various ways as well. British bands like Pink Floyd and Cream began improvising on stage, and this jazz-like freedom was what a young American guitarist named Jimi Hendrix was looking for as well. While working in R&B bands around New York, his guitar playing was limited to traditional R&B riffs, but Jimi wanted to do more.
