Staff Review: The Beatle Invasion!
In February 1964, four talented, cheeky, mop-topped English musicians landed in America, set to undertake a two-week tour and perform on the Ed Sullivan TV show. The Beatles had arrived and America - and the world - would never be the same. THE BEATLE INVASION is an entertaining, nicely-illustrated account of how John, Paul, George and Ringo conquered the hearts of young Americans, therein helping launch a youth revolution that shaped the 1960s. For aging baby boomers, Spitz's book will bring back fond memories of long-ago fun times. Yeah, yeah, yeah!
