The Dave Clark Five U.S. Vinyl Discography

The Dave Clark Five were one of the steadier Invasion groups experiencing few personnel changes.  They followed hot on the heals of the Beatles with their smash hit “Glad All Over” which caught our attention in the U.S. waking us up to the fact that maybe something else was going on in the U.K.  With the DC Five it was all about hit records and when the hits quit coming Mike and Dave turned to the front end of the business and did quite well.  POST INVASION:  The DC Five had one post LP – “The History of The Dave Clark Five” which charted in 1993 just barely – peaking at #127.
