Episode 3: Britain Invades America Fights Back
24 October 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

While American producers were working on well organized music, a completely new way to create and perform music was being invented across the Atlantic.

Folk music went across the ocean, and was picked up by a musician who had background in jazz and the combination turned into skiffle music. In England this was the path many amateur musicians entered into playing music including two guys from Liverpool named John Lennon and Paul McCartney (and immediately following, George Harrison, and later Ringo Starr).

Beatles landed in America, and changed way rock n roll and way other musics created forever. Then the rush of other British musicians followed, and transforming of culture that became the '60s.

American musicians like Roger McGuinn, and David Crosby (BYRDS) was heavily influenced by the Beatles and started making their music modeled after them. Other American groups followed with their own brand of style such as Lovin Spoonful, The Young Rascals, and the Mamas and the Papas.

The exciting music revolution of the '60s is captured in this episode of rock n roll.
