The Dave Clark Five have released All The Hits – The 7” Collection – a new 7” vinyl box set featuring some of the band’s top selling records. The remastered collection arrived Oct. 28, 2022 via BMG.

From the Sept. 22 announcement: All The Hits – The 7” Collection is the definitive selection of their biggest selling singles including “Glad All Over,” “Bits & Pieces” and “Do You Love Me.” This set features ten double-sided vinyl singles in picture sleeves. It was remastered by Dave Clark at Abbey Road Studios in London, and stands as a testament to the enduring popularity of the group.

Clark says of the reissue, “Everyone knows that the 1960s music explosion really happened on the seven-inch vinyl disc spinning at 45rpm. So, for me it felt right to go back into Abbey Road Studios and remaster the DC5’s biggest hits from music’s most thrilling decade onto the original vinyl discs – 20 individual hits on 10 double A-side singles in original picture sleeves. It all brings back the fun and excitement we had back then recording these tracks, and I hope you enjoy them too.”

Formed in the early 1960s, five working class lads from Tottenham, North London came together to become The Dave Clark Five. The 5-piece consisted of Clark (drums), Mike Smith (vocals, keyboard), Lenny Davidson (guitar), Denis Payton (saxophone), and Rick Huxley (bass).

The Dave Clark Five have sold in excess of 100 million records during their career. Recognized as the band that spearheaded the British invasion of the U.S., they became the first U.K. band to tour there and scored 15 consecutive Top Twenty hits within a two-year period. They also appeared on America’s iconic The Ed Sullivan Show a staggering 18 times more than other U.K. act. Their legacy and contribution to music was further cemented when they were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2008 by Academy Award Winning actor, Tom Hanks.

    I wouldn’t put two cents into that manipulative SOB Dave Clark’s pocket after he essentially starved his band “mates” out of making any kind of a living, as musicians, from the music they all helped to make famous, but he owned all the rights to. Miserable example of a “business-savy” control freak.

    He should have released the original singles with the original b-side. He always seems to be trying to change history with his releases

    Love every single song. Watched on TV. Too bad DC was a creep. Didn’t know that. Hope the rest of the band got decent salaries. Not right to squeeze hard working band members. DC5 was a great competitive band to the Beatles and Stones.

    What about the stereo recordings DC has been reporting for many years? Another bs story? They were a great band. Saw them live in Brisbane in the mid-60s.
