10.Try Too Hard (All The Hits, 2020)

“This DC5 song has it all, Mike Smith vocal magic. Fast paced, great melody. In my opinion is the best of the DC5..”

9. You Got What It Takes (Everybody Knows, 1967)

“Nothing great but not much below average as all combine to create a listenable album. Not a classic by any stretch of the imagination but a very representative release.”

8. Do You Love Me (Glad All Over, 1964)

“Great, Great vocal as the Dave Clark Five would issue their first hit single. The sax was always a unique part of their sound.”

7. I Like It Like That (I Like It Like That, 1965)

“I Like It Like That is typical Dave Clark Five sound for the time. Pound those drums, let Mike Smith wail away, lots of foot stomping and there ya go, a British Invasion hit.”

6. Glad All Over (Glad All Over, 1964)

“Everything’s real strong here – Smith’s vocals, Clark and session musician Bobby Graham’s pounding drums and Lenny Davidson’s great guitar melody.”

5. Can’t You See that She’s Mine (A Session with The Dave Clark Five, 1964)

“”Can’t You See That’s She’s Mine” was another driving pop/rock song from The Dave Clark Five. The raw vocal by Mike Smith and the sax sound that glued everything together made for a memorable single.”

4. Bits and Pieces (Glad All Over, 1964)

“Several dance halls in the UK ban the playing of The Dave Clark Five’s “Bits and Pieces” over fears that teens stomping to the beat would damage wooden dance floors.”

3. Catch Us If You Can (Catch Us If You Can, 2019)

“This is a perfect slice of mid-sixties British Beat music. It oozes all the class, freshness, and vitality of the British Beat/Pop boom of 1963-1966. If that means nothing to you musically or personally, then hear this album and, if necessary, pick out the flaws, and even tear it to pieces if objective criticism merits it.”

2. Over and Over (Greatest Hits, 1966)

“Over and Over” is one of the more average songs I’ve ever heard. It’s about a dance with a girl. The lyrics are very repetitive. It’s pretty bland all around. Really, it’s only due to the nice harmonies in the chorus that this song doesn’t have a lower rating.”

1. Because (American Tour, 1964)

““Because” was originally released as a B side in Britain. Dave Clark was reluctant to issue it as an A side because it was a ballad and their hits had been up-tempo rock ‘n’ roll.”
