Co-founder of Rhino Records, Harold Bronson, tells his story. As a passionate music fan who explored the British music scene and met many of the performers whose music he loved, and in some cases got to know them as a music journalist, music executive, or friend, Harold gives an insiders account of London's 1970s music scene. With chapters on Harold's immersion in London's rock scene in the early '70s and others on significant music makers from the '60s and '70s, My British Invasion gives both large and small scopes of the scene that brought us Herman's Hermits, The Hollies, The Kinks, The Yardbirds, Johnny Rotten, and Pirate Radio. A must for all music fans of the British Invasion of the 1960s and 70s.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Bronson's account of his early love of the music is personable and entertaining."
--Booklist

"Bronson's critical judgment and distance, even from artists he admires, offer an intimate and insightful snapshot capturing a unique moment in American pop that for some us proved, sadly, all too fleeting."
--Joel Bellman, LA Observed

"Bronson's passion for the music is evident... and it's contagious."
-- Pop Culture Classics

"His follow-up to 2013's The Rhino Records Story recalls those formative years, beautifully capturing that time in the early 70s before the business became corporate, describing gigs, records and interviews in fervent detail, beautifully evoking 70s London and even throwing in chapters on Granny Takes A Trip and pirate radio."
--Kris Needs, Record Collector (UK)

"The names and adventures fly by page-by-page and if you didn't know it was all true, you might think it impossible..."
--Analog Planet

..".an enjoyable visit to bands of an era that haven't always gotten the journalistic attention that they deserve."
--Houston Press

"This is an excellent piece of work, and is highly recommended."
--John Tobler, Rock's Backpages

"Bronson's writing is easy without being dumbed-down, and packed with anecdotal detail. Music history buffs should investigate. Vividly brought to life."
--Andy Morten, Shindig!

"Full of entertaining and sometimes penetrating anecdotes from a true fan."
--Richie Unterberger, Ugly Things

"For both contemporaries and younger readers, this book is indeed an excellent time capsule of the 1960s and 1970s and its popular music."
--Jan-Christopher Horak, UCLA Film & Television Archive
