In Praise of The DC5
- Dave James
Of course the DC5 weren't The Beatles. Who was or will ever be? What they were, were masters of 3 minute rock. The "let's have some fun", "don't take yourself too seriously" version of the Fab Four. If you require more, don't listen. For the rest of us, they're a little slice of heaven. And anyone who thinks the title song is the best the band has on offer, is simply not paying attention. Like ballads? Try "Because", "Hunting Inside" or "Whenever You're Around". Toe tappers? Diamonds on the beach include, "Bits ad Pieces", "Over and Over" or "Any Way You Want It." Open your ears. There's a lot going on here...way more than initially meets the eye.

Count me in with previous reviewer DAve fl. Just an ersatz production all around. The DC5 are bargain basement Beatles (with such a small repertoire of quality tunes that they have to repeat "Catch Me If You Can," their only good song), Barbara Ferris is a starving man's Julie Christie, and director John Boorman is a pale imitation of Richard Lester (although Boorman, unlike the others, went on to better things) Give it a D plus.
This is a perfect Period Time Piece Time Capsule! Released the same year as The Beatles contrived "Help" movie. As a child of the 60's I can say it much more reflects the era more accurately, and is actually not half bad. I really enjoyed seeing the DC5 doing the type of Campy stuff that would be copied on The Monkees TV show a few years later.
Worth A Look If You're A Dave Clark 5 Fan
- Blue Sage
I enjoyed it. It was about as good as the Beatles film outings. It's all about seeing the DC5 out and about in swinging London and hearing their music. Barbara Ferris is lovely and Dave Clark intense.

The most confusing, boring piece of garbage ever put on film. Just unbelievable, ant totally unwatchable. It hurts.
This is a classic if you were a fan of the Dave Clark 5. It brings back fond memories. Especially since all or most of their past performances are never released, it is a treat to watch and remember the "good ode days." I just wish it was shot in color.
