The British Invasion: November 27th, 1965

July 17, 2012

The British Invasion cooled….

…down considerably from the peak months in late December 1964 and the early part of 1965 with 11 entry’s on the Hot 100 charts and three more “Bubbling Under”.  Marianne Faithfull’s “Go Away From My World” would be her next to final Invasion Era chart record. The picture sleeve which was sparsely distributed with this release is shown below.  It seldom appears at auction.  Also shown are two very scare photo sleeves which recently came up on EBay.  The Peter and Gordon Open Ended Interview provided jocks across the nation an opportunity to “interview them live”.
