About

February 9th 1964 was a pivotal day in the history of rock & roll. That was the Sunday night that The Beatles made their first appearance on The Ed Sullivan Show. From that point on, music would never be the same. The British Invasion of America had begun! Of all the movements that have shaken the world of rock & roll, the British Invasion is considered the very most exciting and important. Only rock & roll’s actual birth as a popular phenomenon and the rise of Elvis Presley are comparable. The beginning of the new British sound actually started 40 years ago on October 11, 1962 when The Beatles charted in the U.K. for the first time with “Love Me Do.” Throughout 1963 many of the artists America would later come to hear charted first in the U.K. on a regular basis. Even though it has been more than four decades since the original British invasion the music is as popular today as it was in the 60s. It continues to be discovered by each new generation and remains an influence for many of today’s recording artists.
