This two-disc collection does a great job of capturing the invasion, as long as you don't need cuts by the Beatles, the Rolling Stones, the Who, or the Kinks, none of whom are represented here. Included, though, are timeless singles by the Zombies "Tell Her No", the Small Faces "Itchycoo Park", the Honeycombs "Have I the Right", the Tremeloes "Here Comes My Baby", and the Fortunes "You've Got Your Troubles". Having all these groups and their biggest hits in one package is a plus, leaving lots of room on the shelf for your complete Beatles collection.
