    I finally found a vinyl copy that looks like it may not be scratched up to holy hell. It looks pretty dusty so I'll soak it in water and dishwashing liquid before playing it.

    Looking at the playlist on the back I have fond memories of wearing out the album my sister had when I was little. I think I love every song on there. They were Brit rock and roll and were on Ed Sullivan and all the other shows a lot during the British Invasion.

    I hope the album isn't damaged and sounds good. :)

    It may be one of the best rock and roll albums of the sixties!

    Great stuff Chet.....as a matter of fact, I'm feeling "Glad All Over" just thinking about it! "Because" is still one of my all time favorite tunes to play. I remember how cool I thought I was when I first learned it with all those beautiful "jazz" chords!

    I liked the DC5 when they hit. There's several 45s somewhere in the house.

    I recently found a sealed copy of "Thumping Great Hits".

    There is a Semi Pro Soccer team in the B-more area that has a support contract with Crystal Palace in London. The "goal" song for both teams is "Glad All Over"

    There have been a couple of other DC5 threads here in the recent past.

    As I mentioned those times, the rumor is that a newly released Greatest Hits CD is in the works.

    Currently all that is available is out-of-print imports.

    Try songza. You can only listen to the songs there unless you wanna go to all the trouble of getting software that captures streaming audio.

    I typed in Wind Cries Mary the old Hendrix Classic and got a whole bunch of different versions of it even one by Pat Boone.

    Any of you guys remember the tv show "Where the action is" ,that I think they hosted. I vaguely remember them playing at what seemed like a California pier. [I think it was on saturdays.

    I happen to have a copy of the out of print Greatest Hits "History of the DC5" CD. I bought it long ago. To my surprise it's worth a fair amount on Ebay. Seems folks really scramble for that one.

    I also have some of their vinyl LPs. Unfortunately they recorded mostly in mono in England -- or at least Mono tapes where all that was supplied to their US Epic record label -- so their LPs in the US are mostly "Rechanneld in Stereo" which is the worst kind of Stereo sound. Mono would be better than that.

    I remember my Grandma and I went to see the DC5 movie "Catch Me If You Can" (new in the theater and all) and I have a copy of it on VHS, too. It wasn't nearly as good as the Beatle movies though.

    A BBC show like "Hullabaloo" called "Ready, Steady, Go" went off the air at the end of 1966 and Dave Clark bought the rigths to the show. He made good money on reruns of the show and the Disney Channel even played many of them here in the US. However, not many made it to video tape or DVDs. Dave didn't capitalize on the show's potential really.

    Where the Action Is or (WTAI) was a music-based variety show which aired on television in the United States during the 1960s. It was carried by the ABC network and aired each weekday afternoon.

    Created by Dick Clark as a spin-off of American Bandstand, Where the Action Is premiered on June 27, 1965.

    The show's theme song, Action became a hit single for Freddy "Boom Boom" Cannon, peaking on the charts (#13) in September 1965. Most of the telecasts, all of which were produced in black-and-white, were taped at various locales in Southern California. The theme song was written by Steve Venet and Tommy Boyce who would later write songs for The Monkees.

    The program had its own stable of performers, most notably Paul Revere & the Raiders. Other performers on Action included Steve Alaimo, Tina Mason (who has been married to Raider Phil Volk for over 40 years now), Linda Scott, future Raider Keith Allison, Tommy Roe, The Hard Times, The Knickerbockers, Don and the Goodtimes (featuring former Raider Charlie Coe, who would rejoin the band in May 1967), The Robbs, and the dance troupe Pete Manifee and the Action Kids.

    The weekday program was cancelled on March 31, 1967, with the network giving its local affiliates the time slot; however, the program's mainstay band Paul Revere and the Raiders with lead vocalist Mark Lindsay continued their string of hit singles into the early 70s. Both Revere and Lindsay hosted Happening '68, a Saturday afternoon follow-up to American Bandstand; and a weekday version, It's Happening, from 1968 to 1969. Both shows were produced by Dick Clark's production company for ABC.
