Long Plays from the Beat Days in the U.K.
The U.K. jumped all over the “American Invasion” welcoming with open arms Bill Haley, Eddie Cochran, Carl Perkins, The Everly Brothers, Buddy Holly & the Crickets and so many more. Then when the Bobbies, and Donnies and Johnnies started springing up in the U.S. – the Brits said “O.K. but give me Jerry Lee Lewis.
Then the U.K. paid us back in kind with their own interpretation of rock and roll – and so we were revived and saved with The British Invasion. But even beyond that – our founding rockers found when their fame waned here at home – they found they were still welcomed – no – more than welcomed – adored in the good old U.K. So I have set up a graphic page of long play releases by mostly U.K. artists (some exceptions) during the “Invasion” era which were released in the U.K.
