    LOVE LOVE LOVE this album!

    This was one of my FAVORITE albums under Barnes and Noble music! I looooooooooove these British bands. Some of my favorite songs were "Here Comes My Baby", "You Really Got Me Now", "Needles and Pins" and "How do You do It?" I'm only 14 but I love each and every song on here! :)

    British Are Coming [Box Set]

    I was looking for a Kinks album and my search produced this box set - I took a look at it and thought that I would give it a try as I didnt have alot of British Invasion Music but had always wanted to give it a try and add the best of it to my collection some day. I was NOT dissappointed! - I feel like an expert on the British Invasion period now - It has informational booklets with pics of all the bands included not in the least to say that the music is incrediable. I was yet to be born when alot of this happened but it was all laid out for me perfectly so I could understand the whole era. I went online to get one for my dad for Christmas. He had most of the stuff on vinyl but I got one so he could listen to it in the car. A great deal!
