"*****The RARE WITHDRAWN ORIGINAL WITH TOTALLY DIFFERENT GROUP COVER! = the vinyl in glorious MONO ...the MONAURAL release suits the gritty driving sound perfectly with the punchy (mono) production, much different from stereo ....
1964 MONO first pressing vinyl... the first album by the mighty DC5 that thrust them next to the Beatles for the royal British crown of rock & roll ...
The Dave Clark Five's first album was a pretty exuberant slab o' vinyl that rocked pretty hard for the most part, paced by the three Top 10 singles "Glad All Over," "Do You Love Me," and "Bits and Pieces." It was a huge seller as well, peaking at number three and remaining in the charts almost as long as the albums by their chief competitors of the era, the Beatles. And it does have cool original songs that does not show up on their greatest hits: the solid pop/rocker "I Know You," the raucous Twist and Shout styled "No Time to Lose," and the surprisingly savage "Chaquita," an inversion of "Tequila" with its snaky, growling guitar riffs and dirty sax.
The Dave Clark Five released five albums in 1964, the first two releases coming only two months apart from one another. This first release, "Glad All Over" is their strongest long player from '64. The best track is the bombastic stomp and echo of "Glad All Over". Also worthy of mentioning is the chaotic "chain gang" backing vocals during the cover of "Stay" is certainly a highlight. But again the surprise of the album is the swampy jungle groove and rattlesnake shake in "Chaquita" that could have fit rather nicely into a Tarantino movie. Lastly, not forget the foot stompin' rock & roll injection: ‘Bits & Pieces’. " - Popsike
This is the rare original cover of the group with NO instruments which was later withdrawn for a different picture with instruments - very collectable true 1st pressing.
The record is Fair.
The jacket is NM (still in shrink).
The LP sounds VG.
This LP is not pretty but it still plays very well with the only surface noise being between tracks. Typical early 60's sound. If your preamp has a 'Mono' position use it for better sound quality.
Each record is washed on a VPI cleaning machine using a proprietary 3-5 agent process which is determined by the needs of the individual record. Each record is then listened to 100% to insure that the posted description is exactly what you can expect to get.
