From the Land of Band Box Records

The U.K. embraced rock and roll

& didn’t let go!

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 here I present the U.K. artists on U.K. LP vinyl releases during the “Invasion Era”.
