AllMusic Review by

The Best of British Rock Group Invasion is, well, not the best of the British Invasion. Park South collected some interesting cuts to make up this collection, but it seems a little weird that they opened the collection with Spencer Davis' 1997 re-recording of his hit "I'm a Man" instead of the original recording. There are some strange cuts here indeed, Edison Lighthouse's "Funny How Love Can Be" and "Never Be Anyone Else but You" appear here instead of their only hit, "Love Grows Where My Rosemary Goes," and two muddled recordings of the Beau Brummels, neither of which were their hits either. There is an appearance of the Troggs' "Wild Thing" and "Mrs. Brown You Have a Lovely Daughter" by Herman's Hermits, but this collection is far from being representative of the best of the British Invasion.
