Before the Beatles ushered in the beat revolution, the British pop scene reverberated to a tidal wave of home-grown instrumental music. However the golden age of the instrumental was destined to wither as quickly as it had bloomed, yet British rock owed much to its wordless past. This excellent 3 disc compilation includes tracks such as “Telstar”, “F.B.I.” and “Sleepwalk” and aptly plays out with “At The Sign Of The Swingin’ Cymbal” by Brian Fahey & his Orchestra, the original 1960 version of the ‘chart rundown’ tune for BBC Radio’s Pick Of The Pops. If you’ve got that far, we guarantee you’ve enjoyed 60 of the greatest instrumentals British popular music has to offer!
