Though they consistently checked in as superstars in their native England -- on par critically and commercially with contemporaries the Who and the Rolling Stones -- the psychedelic, R&B-fueled rock act the Small Faces failed to catch fire in America. They did succeed at indelibly reshaping British rock, however, with such singles as "Itchycoo Park," "Lazy Sunday," and "Sha-La-La-La-Lee," as well as their magnum opus album, Ogden's Nut Gone Flake (1968). This retrospective homage to the band brings into a single collection 27 performances culled from different concerts and television broadcasts, including renditions of all the aforementioned singles plus nine tunes from Ogden's. ~ Nathan Southern, Rovi
British Invasion: Dusty Springfield - Once Upon a Time, 1964-1969
Especially for fans of the British Invasion, Dusty Springfield (1939-99) retains a status as one of the most beloved and singular female vocalists in all of 20th century pop. This retrospective brings into a single collection twenty complete Dusty performances filmed between 1964 and 1969, with such numbers as "Wishin' and Hopin'," "I Can't Hear You," "The Look of Love," "Mockingbird" and "Dancing in the Street." Also included are bonus archival interviews with Springfield and newly-filmed interviews with such collaborators as Burt Bacharach, Simon Bell and Madeline Bell. ~ Nathan Southern, Rovi
British Invasion: Gerry & the Pacemakers - It's Gonna Be All Right, 1963-1965
Though active for a relatively short period -- from 1959 through 1966 -- British Invasion mainstays Gerry & the Pacemakers swept up a devoted fan base on both sides of the Atlantic. Managed by the late Brian Epstein and fronted by Gerald "Gerry" Marsden, they inherited the famous "Merseyside Beat" from the Beatles but made it lighter, softer, and catchier than the Fab Four and thus developed their own unique sound. This retrospective compilation brings together a series of performances by the band, culled from various sources and mounted between 1963 and 1965. Singles in the collection include "Ferry Cross the Mersey," "I'll Be There," "Pretend," and "Don't Let the Sun Catch You Crying." ~ Nathan Southern, Rovi
British Invasion: Herman's Hermits - Listen People, 1964-1969
Phenomenally successful on a commercial level but never as critically esteemed as some of their contemporaries, the pop ensemble Herman's Hermits racked up a series of top-charting singles from 1964 to 1969 that quickly checked in as staples of the British Invasion. This compilation offers 22 Hermits performances shot at various venues during the said period, including "Mrs. Brown You've Got a Lovely Daughter," "I'm Into Something Good," "Can't You Hear My Heart Beat," and "There's a Kind of Hush." Bonus features include interviews with Peter Noone and other original band members, a brief concert filmed in 1966 for Australian television, a commentary track, and supplemental bonus interviews. ~ Nathan Southern, Rovi
