Episode 274 / British Invasion Volume 8

Episode 274 / British Invasion Volume 8

Playing tracks by

Beatles, Rolling Stones, Kinks, Hollies, Small Faces and more.

Chart positions

This show was 62nd in the global rock chart.

Back we go to the British Invasion of the 60s (a large part of my teenage years), and although we do feature some familiar tunes from that era, our primary focus on Volume 8 is “British Invasion Rarities”! Many of these tracks are long-forgotten gems and b-sides which all still rock mightily — and in a lot of cases try desperately to emulate the Fab Four! High Time Baby!


Terry Tavis

Love the show Captain M. good job!!!!

Johnny Switchblade

Fantastic show! I like how you disguised the Beatles track by using their names: brilliant, and it worked -- I could play the show, at least. I love Ringo's fills on "Slow Down": the second one sounds like he dropped the drums down a stairwell and recorded it, lol.

The Captain Maniac Show

Probably the same stairwell where Bonzo recorded "When the Levee Breaks"? (Hedley Grange)


Ah man - nothing by The Move?

The Captain Maniac Show

Not on this episode, unfortunately! I did include I Can Hear the Grass Grow and Flowers In The Rain on a couple of my psychedelic shows ( and, but I neglected to include them in any of my British Invasion shows.


Great show in any case usually are

Robbie White
