Casey Kasem set the standard for radio countdowns with his weekly "American Top 40" show. Now, Casey reaches into the archives to bring you rare and exciting performances from the 60's greatest musicians. In the mid 1960's a wave of British rock groups crossed the Atlantic to rule the charts in America. Ranging from hard rock to bouncy pop, with catchy melodies and ringing guitars, the British Invasion changed the sound of rock and roll forever.
Gerry and the Pacemakers: "How Do You Do It"
Peter and Gordon: "World Without Love"
Manfred Mann: "The Mighty Quinn (Quinn the Eskimo)"
The Animals: "We Gotta Get Out of This Place"
Joe Cocker: "Delta Lady"

The Hollies: "He Ain't Heavy, He's My Brother"
The Troggs: "Wild Thing"
