The British Invasion: November 7th, 1964

February 5, 2012

Several of the Invaders continued to move up into the upper reaches of the Billboard Charts.  David Seville’s Chipmunks made a very brief appearance with the Liberty single “All My Loving” which was backed by “Please Please Me” – sort of hard locate on the U.S. label.

The Fourmost never entered the U.S. charts but had a handful of releases during the Invasion era including the Atco label – and with “Here There & Everywhere” a Lennon/McCartney composition in 1966 – on the Capitol label.  The Fourmost are displayed here performing the Holland-Dozier-Holland penned hit (for the Four Tops).  They evolved from a duo called the Two Jays” in the late 1950’s – then into the “Four Jays” and so on and hailed from the Liverpool area.

Cilla Black (Priscilla White) from Liverpool – performs her July 1964 hit.
