Columbus might have been the charismatic and energetic frontman, but as this 45-song double disc reminds, he had a band that were as good as it got in this country during the early Sixties - and no surprise that Del Shannon wanted to poach them after a tour on the same bill. Over the long haul here it might be the Invaders as much as Ray and the songs you tune in for. Much of the music, mostly covers as was the practice in those Beatlemania days, sounds utterly locked in its period of course: On My Mind peels off most of Boys; there is Willie and the Hand Jive, I Wanna Be Your Man (faithful but punchy), Shakin' All Over, Long Tall Sally, I Saw Her Standing There, Poison Ivy. All songs familiar in any Beat Band's repertoire.

Raymond John Patrick Columbus was born and raised in Christchurch, New Zealand, and became a rock & roll fan after landing a job selling ice cream at a movie theater. The swagger and charisma of Elvis Presley in Jailhouse Rock had a powerful impact on young Ray, and he formed his first band at age 14. In 1960, Columbus became the lead singer with a combo called the Downbeats. A handful of gigs in Auckland led to a record deal with Zodiac Records, and Ray Columbus the Invaders made their debut on vinyl in 1963. That year, they issued their first single, "Money Lover" b/w "So in Love," followed by the album Every Nite. The group's 1964 cover of the Beatles' "I Wanna Be Your Man" was a success, but it was with "She's a Mod" that Columbus and company found their signature sound.
