well focused entry in series
16 April 2007 | by (usa) – See all my reviews

The ten episode series of documentaries, "The History of Rock & Roll" hits a high note with the third installment, "Britain Invades, America Fights Back". After rock music gained a bit of acceptance, music began to lose a bit of the adventure and inspiration of those early years. In the early 1960's this American export came rushing back with a fresh sound courtesy of the pop stylings of the legendary Beatles, and the blues-infused pop rock of The Rolling Stones, as well as a flurry of other Brit-Bands. Instantly the American groups had some major competition that really tested their talent. Like previous episodes the sixty minutes are filled with archival footage crosscut with interviews with significant voices in music.
