Well Mr. Peabody, it appears you gave an extra cup of coffee to the Way-Back Machine this morning!!
There was actually a short period, 1964, where The Dave Clark Five were battling The Beatles for most popular British Invasion band.
There were a ton of hits on this album. There were really strong songs that had some edge to them as well. I also loved the “dirty sax” sound that The Dave Clark Five used in their mix.
Highlights you ask? Well of course the title track, “Glad All Over,” plus there were other classics like “Bits and Pieces” and “Do You Love Me.” “Catch Us if You Can” wasn’t on this album but I’m going to add the video anyway.
The Dave Clark Five were made up of drummer Dave Clark, keyboards and lead vocalist Mike Smith, Lenny Davidson on lead guitar, Rick Huxley on bass and Denis Payton on that great sax, harmonica and guitar.
Glad All Over peaked at #6 on the Cashbox Chart.
The Dave Clark Five were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2008. They were introduced by Tom ‘That Thing You Do’ Hanks. Joan Jett rocked “Bits and Pieces” at the ceremony while John Mellancamp added “Glad All Over.”
