English Rock and Roll band, The Dave Clark Five (The DC5) have announced a special limited-edition white vinyl for their seminal 1964 U.S. debut album Glad All Over. Previously announced as a Black Friday release, the set will now be available via BMG on December 17th and released on vinyl for the first time since 1964.
Remastered from the album’s original tapes by Dave Clark at Abbey Road Studios, the limited-edition white vinyl celebrates the album that produced hit singles including “Bits and Pieces”, “Do You Love Me” and “Glad All Over”, their first No.1 single which knocked The Beatles off the UK’s No.1 spot in 1964. The reissue also includes an updated track list and features reproduced original artwork.
Founded by celebrated musicians, songwriter, and producer Dave Clark, the 5-piece consisted of Clark (drums), Mike Smith (vocals, keyboard), Lenny Davidson (guitar), Denis Payton (saxophone), and Rick Huxley (bass).
Recognized as the band that spearheaded the British invasion of the US, they became the first UK band to tour there. They also appeared on America’s Ed Sullivan Show 18 times. They were inducted into The American Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in March 2008.
