Music legends The Dave Clark Five have announced All The Hits – The 7” Collection, a brand new 7” vinyl box set collecting some of the band’s biggest selling records, available on October 28, 2022 via BMG.
All The Hits’ – The 7” Collection features singles like “Glad All Over”, “Bits & Pieces”, and “Do You Love Me”. The collection of ten double-sided vinyl singles in “picture bag sleeves” was remastered by Dave Clark at Abbey Road Studios in London.
Dave Clark says of the reissue:
Everyone knows that the 1960s music explosion really happened on the seven-inch vinyl disc spinning at 45rpm. So, for me it felt right to go back into Abbey Road Studios and remaster the DC5’s biggest hits from music’s most thrilling decade onto the original vinyl discs – 20 individual hits on 10 double A-side singles in original picture sleeves. It all brings back the fun and excitement we had back then recording these tracks, and I hope you enjoy them too.
Formed in the early 1960s in the UK, The Dave Clark Five (The DC5) 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 and scored a record-breaking fifteen consecutive Top Twenty hits within a two-year period, more than the Rolling Stones, the Beach Boys, the Supremes, and more than any other group or artist in the world save The Beatles.
They were inducted into The American Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in March 2008 by Academy Award Winning actor, Tom Hanks, with other music legends paying tribute to the band.
