Although the collection doesn't include tracks from the Beatles, the Rolling Stones, the Who, Herman's Hermits, the Dave Clark Five, and the early Animals, their absence doesn't hurt the series, since it spotlights several artists who never had more than a handful of hits, plus many forgotten gems.

British rock and roll, or sometimes British rock 'n' roll, is a style of popular music based on American rock and roll, which emerged in the late 1950s and was popular until the arrival of beat music in 1962. It has generally been considered inferior to the American version of the genre, and made little international or lasting impact

British rock music implies the development of The Beatles onward, since they inspired a high percentage of rock bands that followed, whereas earlier guitar-based rock is usually considered a different era. While many British rock bands were heavily influenced by American rock and roll of the 1950s, many of the sixties bands fused this inspiration with their own blues-based sound.

While British rock music was developing in the early 60s, a style called "surf music" was developing in Los Angeles. American-Lebanese guitarist Dick Dale was creating an exciting new style of instrumental rock by mixing Middle-Eastern music with rock and roll. He used reverb to create a guitar sound that was also used by the Beach Boys, surf music's most successful band. Surf music was very popular until the British Invasion in 1964. Once the Beatles had taken over the US charts and become the world's most popular band, they began changing the history of popular music.
