Johnnie Walker presents part seven of the Atlantic Records story. It features The Rascals, Buffalo Springfield, The Bee Gees and unpicks the tales that Phil Spector told about his involvement with Atlantic.

Ahmet Ertegun started to pursue more acts that could emulate the "British Invasion" which led him to sign The Bee Gees. We also find out how Sonny & Cher first met and cut their debut, I Got You Babe.
