The chronological period of this part two centers on mid 1963 to the early part of 1965. A key feature is the core of the polemical argument put forward through the whole series, that the famous Beatles group was not the basis of Sixties Music but indeed hampered its valid development. A major argument is put forward for the Beach Boys being the most influential popular band of the decade, especially in its first half, accompanied secondarily by New York group the Four Seasons.

Both groups not only wrote their songs and arranged them for the most part but also determined how their recorded discs would sound, unlike the Beatles. All three groups, along with other major acts such as the Rolling Stones, Dave Clark Five, Dusty Springfield and Tom Jones (to name just a selection of Britons) were heavily reliant on black American precursors.Aside from the polemic angle the book is a comprehensive reference work, mentioning all major hit recordings of any real influence, all popular acts in the rock field of note, and trends in sounds and in the business.

Major American and British acts are dealt with fully, with brief mention of those of lesser impact and entertainers from France, Italy and elsewhere.In the course of some 210 pages, including approaching three dozen photographs, the atmosphere of the times is painted vividly. As the Beach Boys are used as a center of reference, their single hits and albums are listed in appendices.
