Rock Music – British Beat and Mod-beat from the sixties – a list of the best tracks.

This is a list of my favourite tracks from the sixties Beat Boom of 1964. There were some great bands. I thought this would be fun!

This is when Britain ruled the world. Our Music dominated. We took the States by storm and there were hundreds of great bands. My favourites were the Downliners Sect!

This is another extract from the book Rock Routes. I bet you would add a few tracks to this and maybe take a couple out. But that’s the fun of it!
