We all know what happened to The Beatles and The Rolling Stones... but what about The Rockin' Berries, Briane Poole & The Tremeloes, The Honeycombs, and Sounds Incorporated? In between the peppy early Sixties pop and the late Sixties progressive rock, there were hundreds of beat groups from all over Britain looking for two-minute hits and slightly longer careers. Their bids for pop fame are now celebrated in this unique and lavishly illustrated encyclopedia - the big names, the small names, the superstars, and the no-hopers. Full of facts, surprises, and some great Then, Now and Rare photos, this is the ultimate trip back to the unique, hyperactive beat boom of the Sixties.
