Look on Web for CD set

Published Sep. 2, 2005

Question: Why is it impossible to find any good CD collection of hits by the Dave Clark Five?

Answer: Not impossible if you get online. The ideal CD for you is History of the Dave Clark Five, a two-disc, 50-track package. With this 1993 issue, you will likely find everything you always wanted but could not find by the DC5, as well as an informative booklet.

Iz zat so?

As is often the case, necessity was the mother of invention when it came to forming the Dave Clark Five.

The outrageously successful Dave Clark Five was originally formed by members of a London area soccer team, the Tottenham Hot Spurs, all because they needed a way to raise funds so they could travel to Holland to play a

soccer game. No rock music act appeared more times on The Ed Sullivan Show than the DC5, with estimates ranging from 12 to 18 guest appearances on the "really big show."
