"Great selection of artists and songs,BUT: Eric Burdon should've sung his hits with the original arrangements and this show should have been recorded with better sound equipment. The sound on this DVD is only in stereo and TERRIBLE at that!I'll still watch it from time to time, but the above mentioned 2 items take away from my full enjoyment of this disc."

"I base my review of four stars on the number of songs I enjoyed (20 out of 31). I especially enjoyed Peter Noone/Herman's Hermits (6 songs), Freddie & the Dreamers (2 songs), and Clem Curtis and the Foundations singing Build Me Up Buttercup. Other songs are enjoyable as well. There are too many to list. If you enjoyed this music during its heyday, you'll enjoy it on this DVD."
This music lives on...

"There is something very special about the music that came out of the 60's. The British Invasion played a large role in how it evolved. I waited over six months for this program to air on PBS, only to find that the local PBS station had chosen not to air it. I had to wait another three months before I finally got to view the show. I do so wish I had gone last summer. Having the opportunity to see so many of the artists I listened to in my early youth would have been a real treat. The Foundations, The Dakotas, Wayne Fontana, I still listen to them. My kids listen to them. I have seen Peter Noone on a few (dozen) occasions, and he always puts on a great show. Always. He still has the spark and energy of a fiftenn year old. Watching him makes me feel like a kid again, too. I for one am thrilled to have this video to watch between shows."
