Description by OLDIES.com:
The huge influx of talent from across the pond included not only the The Beatles, but also The Dave Clark Five, The Kinks, The Moody Blues, Them (and Van Morrison), The Yardbirds, The Who, and, of course, The Rolling Stones. But the invasion wasn't only musical: Peter O'Toole, Julie Andrews, Sean Connery, and Michael Caine made a splash in Hollywood, while films like Goldfinger, Alfie, and What's New, Pussycat? topped box-office charts. "The Avengers "became cult TV, and Carnaby Street defined hip style, turning Mary Quant, Twiggy, and Jean Shrimpton into fashion icons.
Filled with photographs that capture one of the most exciting artistic periods in recent history, this is an evocative, irresistible look back.
