The music and careers of Dusty Springfield, Gerry & The Pacemakers, Small Faces and Herman’s Hermits are the cornerstones of the new British Invasion 5-DVD set.

The set, which is from Reelin’ In The Years Productions, Voyage Digital Media and Naxos of America, was released March 30, 2010. A bonus fifth disc thatis only available with the purchase of the boxed set features 2-1/2 hours of extras, which includes bonus performances by Dusty Springfield and Herman’s Hermits.

Each DVD was produced with the full support and cooperation of the artists or, as in the case of the late Dusty Springfield, their estates.

Small Faces keyboardist Ian McLagan was impressed with the depth of the “Small Faces — All or Nothing 1965-1968″ DVD, which he viewed when post-production wrapped.

“For the first time, the whole world can see the Small Faces in their prime in this wonderful film using never-before-seen footage — even by me,” McLagan said. The DVD features 27 complete performances by his band.
