British Invasion!

Yes, the red coats are coming!  Okay, so maybe that's not quite it.  The British Invasion musically was not so threatening and brought to our shores a great new way of looking at rock 'n' roll.  In the quirky Oracle fashion British Psychedelic music is explored along with surrounding areas in the UK including a selection from some of her colonies such as South Africa, Australia and Canada (with the exception of a couple of sneaky devils from the USA that crept into my playlist-long story, best not to ask).  Well, technically the USA did a stint as a there!  Download, tune in & turn on by clicking here:
