Ok. This may sound a lot like an old man...but the music sure was better back in the old days.

After watching the program, I never knew they had so many hits.

I do remember the DC5....and I think I even said something on a post months ago about how good they were. The show didn't really do it justice. The Turtles......Lovin' Spoonful(really J Sebastian) etc etc...yeah, my kind of music. Then you get into Bad Finger and their horrible fate. The music world is not for the faint of heart .

While I liked DC5, when it came time to spend my small allowance at the local record bar, I bought 45rpm's of the Beatles. Too bad I wore them out.

As "Bird in Hand" said: For a program that spent much of its time lauding Dave Clark as a music-business genius and all-around fantastic guy, I was a bit surprised to see that Dave Clark himself produced and directed it. By all accounts he's a humble and down-to-earth kind of guy -- especially for a celebrity -- but that just struck me as very self-aggrandizing."

Good obervation and I might have thought the same, but I read an interview with someone involved with this project (can't recall who) who asserted that DC also felt this way, and in fact had to be assured/persuaded to be listed in the credits as producer, executive producer, or whatever it was. The argument was that the show accurately portrayed his many faceted roles in the group and he should not be unduly modest or self conscious about it.

Anyway, like others have said, I forgot just how many great pop songs they had in that short period of time. And I remember thinking "Because" was by the Beatles for quite a long time back in the day. Sheesh!

Gotta love that British Invasion!
