The British Are Coming – Dual Disc sampler of 60s British pop

by | Jun 1, 2005 | CD+DVD | 0 comments

British Are Coming; Silverline 284506-2 DualDisc ***1/2 (music), 0 Stars for yet another format to confuse consumers: 

As much as I hate the Dualdisc format, I have to respect Silverline for
doing as much work as they do with DVD-A.  They get lots of
material out there and give the format a fighting chance.  At
first it seemed that DVDA would easily overtake SACD because of the
compatibility with DVD video players, but I just don’t see that
happening at this point.  Who knows what the future brings? 
In any case, there is a full review of the material on this disc in a
previous review of the DVDA disc on this website.  There are some
artist biographies and photos as extras on the DVDA side of this disc
and nothing else.  Like the other Silverline Dualdisc releases,
this disc has the Dolby Headphone symbol and offers DD sound on the DVD
side.  The material is mostly good and gives a nice sampling of
British Pop of the 60s. 

Songs included are:  Love Potion Number Nine – The Searchers;
Catch The Wind – Donovan; In The Summertime – Mungo Jerry; Pictures of
Matchstickmen – The Status Quo; Tossing And Turning – The Ivy League;
Here Comes My Baby – The Tremeloes; He’s In Town – The Rockin’ Berries;
Baby, Now That I’ve Found You – The Foundations; I Dig Everything –
David Bowie; Reflections Of My Life – Marmalade; Sugar And Spice – The
Searchers; Silence Is Golden – The Tremeloes; Take A Heart – The
Sorrows; Colours – Donovan; I Put A Spell On You – Alan Price Set;
Telstar – The Tornadoes.
