    A lotta' cool names up there ! Even as a 10 yr. old kid, I knew that the Zombies were EXTRA cool. Their "Tell her no" was the same caliber as "DC5's "Because",to me. ..by the way,I think that last chord on "Because" is a G7,13

    Those were the days! Funny how 3 chord songs could sound so good.

    "Because" must've been thier favorite song cause it's pretty messed up on his particular record. :mad:

    The rest of the record is amazingly good though. This is one album I think they ought to reissue and remaster.

    Hey tele, here's the songlist from the "History..."CD... Are you sure of that title? I too loved the DC5 for the first few years of the British Invasion, great thumping singles and ballads... then came Psychedelia and they just didn't make the jump and vanished... their later attempts are pretty limp. Glad to see their induction into the RR HOF last year. Should have been sooner, Mike Smith deserved to be there...

    Best,
    Tom

    PS the set seems to go for $30-40 on eBay... not really that bad...

    Sitting Here Baby was a B-side of one of their singles, I don't know if it was ever on an album.

    Mike Smith has to be one of the best rock and roll singers ever. He could really belt out a song and could slow down and sing a great ballad like "Because" like there was nothing to it.

    I don't if I've ever heard anyone say that.

    I listened to it a lot last night and also put on some Rick Nelson rocka billy.

    Catch Me If You Can is a 2002 film directed by Steven Spielberg based on the life of Frank Abagnale Jr.


    The 1965 Dave Clark Five film is known in England as Catch Us If You Can.
    In the States, the film is titled Having a Wild Weekend.


    Is there anything I don't know.
    ;)




    Oh yeah, absolutely.

    Howdy,

    Ironically, Tom Petty mentioned just how difficult is is to find any CDs by the DC5 on his radio show. I listen to it on Sirius on the "Deep Tracks" channel on my TV. Count me as a fan of the DC5; I'm a Britsh Invasion kind of guy.

    I bet if they released a DVD of those appearances and new/remastered CD and vinyl of thier albums they'd get a whole new audience.

    The music holds up against anything that's been recorded since as good ol' rock and roll.

    It's just a piece of vinyl- kinda like plastic. Just like washing dishes but you have to be careful and make sure too much dust doesn't get on them when you dry them.

    And when the water dries be sure that the minerals and solids in the water aren't deposited on the record.

    Which means you have to use water filtered with reverse osmosis and that it contains no chemicals that could be left on the record.

    Oh, and be sure there are no contaminants on the drying cloth.

    Good luck finding drying cloths free of contaminants when dealing with the microscopic grooves on a record. Micro-fiber cloths are your best bet. Clean terry cloth towels? Not clean enough.

    Lastly, don't let the label get wet.

    The best way to clean vinyl records is with a record cleaning machine that vacuums away the cleaning fluid and rinse fluid.

    D'oh, yes! And the VHS I have is "Having a Wild Weekend." At my age I shouldn't ever trust my memory.

    Thanks!

    I thought I had an LP version of the "Best of the Dave Clark Five". So, I had to go through the whole collection and found that I do. And, it's a British pression on "Star Line' which is kind of a bargain EMI label. I remember that it was the one way to get their "Best of" in stereo without getting the US Epic made "rechanneled for stereo".

    It looks like this:

    Only mine isn't still in shrink wrap like this one.

    I have the "rechanneled for stereo" and it sounds good to me.

    Yeah, I wish I had a mono version but beggars can't be choosers with this album. :)

    I'm just glad I have a listenable vinyl copy.

    My musicologist suggested diaper material with a bit of warm water and with some rubbing alcohol! It works like a charm .. and doesn't smell or anything lol ... and the cloth is number 1 when it comes to cleaning vinyl. I buy it by the yard. Really, it does a great job on scratchy records.

    I agree remembering the mid 60's 65-66 the DC5 was just as popular as The Beatles it wasnt till The Beatles did Sgt Pepper and The White Album that just blew away everyone else.
