From names of animals, to titles of songs, British groups in the Sixties seemed to have used just about every conceivable moniker to be known and remembered. Some bands even borrowed the name of the leader for the same purpose: Manfred Mann, Dave Clark 5, Spencer Davis Group. Still, no one would have guessed that by stringing together the names of all five of the group's members one would have perhaps the most memorable--if not the funniest--names of all. Dave Dee, Dozy, Beaky, Mick & Tich not only had humour in the name. There was just as much wit, charm and pure fun in their music as well. Their debut album, now reissued with its original cover and a fine selection of bonus tracks, is an apt introduction to the group in all respects. From the first track, a clever spoof on that formidable name, to their first mega-hit, "Hold Tight" (the pounding drum tempo supposedly suggesting the rhythm of Dave Dee's roommate's love-making) this album gives a selection of the mid Sixties Mod sound it its purest form. Ballads such as "Here's A Heart," and "After Tonight," mingle with the driving beats of "You Make It Move," and "Frustration." Among the bonus material is a true rarity: Due to the perceived suggestive lyrics of the hit song "Bend It," their American label insisted on alternate lyrics introducing a new dance craze, and so a completely new song was born. It was months before some teenagers in the USA learned that in no other land was the "Bend It" a dance sensation. As part of a new group of Dave Dee, etc. reissues, this album sets the stage for a splendid and very thorough representation of the heyday of a band that still continues to this very day. It's well worth a listen for anyone still curious as to what The Swinging Sixties were all about.

4.0 out of 5 stars An Overlooked Band of the Sixties 5 April 2005
By Morten Vindberg - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
The first album from Dave Dee Dozy etc. was originally released on Fontana Records in 1966. It contains some great examples of British 1960's pop; most of it written by the young songwriter team Ken Howard and Alan Blaikley.

The recorded a long string of hit-singles during 1965-69, and obviously many of these are highlights on their albums. Their debut album is probably their most consistent, with many fine album tracks as well. Right from the opening intro track "DDD-BMT" you feel their energy and eager to play. On songs like "Nose For Trouble" the show a great sense of humour, a side of the band which grew more or less into a trade-mark.

Among the other album tracks the fine ballads "Here's a Heart" and "Something I Gotta Tell You" would have fitted Liverpool acts like Gerry and the Pacemakers nicely.

More hard-rocking tracks like "Frustration" and "Double Agent" add to the album's variety.

The distorted guitar in the beginning of the hit-single "Hold Tight" makes the track almost like some Spencer Davis Group would have done. Great pop-tune!

Among the 12 bonus-tracks there are outstanding hit-singles such as "Hideaway", "All I Want", "You Make it Move" and "Bend It". The band themselves wrote a few of the songs here, and the B-side "It Is Love" is my favourite among these.

This is one the overlooked bands of the sixties, and if you want only one of their original albums, this one certainly would be good choice.
