THE DAVE CLARK FIVE - The Dave Clark Five DTS-DVD

$25.99 12.99

This is my compilation of songs by The Dave Clark Five, upmixed to 5.1 DTS surround sound using the Spec method and tools available on Surroundbyus.com. I also utilized several other audio editing programs. (DTS isn't lossless but there is no upmix section on the site.)

Finding music by The Dave Clark Five can be a bit of a challenge. Dave Clark owns all the masters and only occasionally lets a record company put out a limited edition compilation. None of the original albums have been officially/legally issued on CD. Finding DC5 music in stereo is also very difficult because Dave was not a big fan of stereo and felt they were making hits for AM radio so most of there music was only mastered in mono. Epic used the worst kind of processing to make stereo versions of their albums – treble on one channel, bass on the other. Better to listen to mono versions than that engineering atrocity.

Finding Dave Clark Five music in 5.1 surround is…well…I think this is it.

The Dave Clark Five made a big impression on me because of the huge sound and upfront presence of Dave Clark’s drums. I had never heard any drums on a record like the DC5 sounded and it influenced my taste in heavier Rock from that point forward. Other drummer driven records by artists such as Sandy Nelson, Cozy Cole or Gene Krupa sounded tame compared to the machine gun thunder of Dave Clark. The Beatles, Rolling Stones, The Who, Small Faces and The Kinks all had great rocking songs, but none had the grit and power drum sound of DC5 hits like Glad All Over, Do You Love Me or Bits and Pieces. Even their softer songs such as Because, Everybody Knows and Can’t You See That She’s Mine have a lush, full sound.

The Dave Clark Five were the second major group of the ‘60s British Invasion, appearing on Ed Sullivan two weeks after the Beatles. And there was the drummer – up front – with the keyboards and guitars behind him. I had never seen a group set up like that before. Glad All Over had knocked I Want To Hold Your Hand off the top spot on the charts a couple of weeks prior. The DC5 was promoted as having the “Tottenham Sound” (as opposed to the Beatles “Mersey Beat”). During its peak hit making years the band consisted of Dave Clark (drums), Mike Smith (lead vocals, keyboards), Lenny Davidson (guitar), Rick Huxley (bass) and Denis Payton (sax, harmonica, guitar).

While producing lots of original sounds, they also copied a lot of other successful artists’ styles over the course of their career – The Champs (Chaquita), The Who (All Night Long), Tom Jones (If Somebody Loves You), The Beach Boys (Here Comes Summer), Tommy James (Inside & Out), Charlie Rich (Satisfied With You), The Beatles (Universal Love) and even Badfinger (Right Or Wrong). Towards the end of their career they recorded a cover of Amen Corner’s Paradise (Is Half As Nice) and two Rock & Roll medleys. A final album put together by Dave Clark with Mike Smith and Madeline Bell (credited to Dave Clark And Friends) was made up almost entirely of covers of other artists’ hits including Steam, Tommy James, Ray Stevens/Billy Craddock, The Youngbloods, Jackie DeShannon, The Stampeders and Neil Young. Some of the recordings were new, but some may have actually been unused DC5 tracks.

In March 2008 the Dave Clark Five was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
One bit of trivia: The DC5 is one of the only artists to ever have two different charting songs with the same title: Everybody Knows in 1964 and 1967.


The Dave Clark Five - DTS-DVD project started out as a simple greatest hits upmix, but over the course of six weeks it became this 77 song, 3 hour behemoth you now see before you. Even at this length, I do not claim this to be a definitive anthology but it does have most of their US and UK single sides. The tracks are generally presented in chronological order, grouped more by period than absolute release date and with consideration to tempo, musical key and overall flow of the program.

Each song was processed individually using the best sources available. Some are from CD, my own vinyl rips and (unfortunately) a couple of MP3s. Due to different recording production, technology, time period, etc., the sound quality can vary from track to track, especially with the older songs. I don’t use any normalization, so some songs may appear to be louder than others even though overall levels are the same, so have your remote control handy while you listen. Also, I used many different methods to upmix the tracks to 5.1. For the stereo tracks I used Plogue Bidule with Spec set to Slice. On the mono tracks I used a variety of techniques, programs and my own magic. I used DTS Master Audio for DTS encoding and Audio Muxer to assemble the songs and artwork into an ISO image.

There is artwork to accompany each song, so turn your TV/ monitor on when you listen to this program.
