Dave Clark Five stars

(5 out of 5 stars)

"Glad All Over is a good title to start off this collection.

One thing that DC5 were very good at was entertainment. A very tight group in the 60s that were at the fore of the British Invasion. While often mixed in with Merseybeat groups, they actually hailed from north London.

It is too bad that this collection is no longer being made. The collection is one of the best of groups from this era.

The earliest songs are the strongest from high octane "Glad All Over," "Any Way You Want It" and "Catch Us If You Can" to excellent soft melodies like "Because" and "Whenever Your Around." Lesser known "Do You Still Love Me" and Don't Be Taken In" present Mike Smith's superlative vocals and Dave Clark's clever drumming.

The latter songs are a drop off from the earlier collection, but then again, the music scene changed drastically between 1966 and 1967 and so ended the period with what they called "Acid music" back then. DC5 were probably smart to move on, which is what Dave Clark mentions in the liner notes. Although, it is forgotten that their hits rivalled all the others, including the Beatles, they toured in their own plane and Clark turned the music into a lucrative business, still a problem for pop musicians, despite what you see in the pop press.

If you want THE collection for DC5, this is it. It includes an extensive liner note booklet."
