Strange as it may seem, they were fucking HUGE in the US - for a couple years, anyway - and released a lot more product here than in their home country.

I remember Guy E. relating that you were either a Beatles fan or Dave Clark fan when he was growing up in the early/mid sixties.

It kinda astounded me, but they did have a good run of singles.

Talk about overcompensating for something.

The record in the middle is a reissue which came out in 1993, and the final record was released in 2008. A further 50 million units shifted in that period? Yeah, right. Odd man though, Dave Clark.
