Disck two containing "Britain invades, America fights back" & "the sounds of soul." Britain Invades, America fights back: In January 1964, the Beatles landed in New York City--and rock 'n' roll was bom again. Jolted by the competition, American bands rose to the occasion, fighting back with music that was original, energetic and in tune with a decade of roller-coaster change. The sounds of soul: "Soul" is sometimes defined as the essence of the human spirit. In the popular music of the 1960s, soul meant something more tangible. It was a shout of joy, a cry of pain-- and an emblem of uninhibited self-expression.

Britain Invades, America fights back / written, produced and directed by Andrew Solt, edited by Leslie Tong. The sounds of soul / directed, produced and written by Valerie Norman.
