The Very Best Of Dave Dee, Dozy, Beaky, Mick And Titch - the name sounds daft, but the music doesn't,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Best Of Dave Dee, Dozy, Beaky, Mick & Tich (Audio CD)
They might have had the longest and silliest name in pop history, but Dave Dee, Dozy, Beaky Mick and Titch were a classic band who put out some essential `60s pop tracks.
Full of inventive sounds and great lyrics (both exemplified in their big hit `Xanadu'), they put out track after track of foot tapping, well crafted music - sort of light rock with a tinge of psychodelia. Expertly played by the talented band, with some great vocals, this is great stuff.
This collection brings together 18 original recordings, covering all the big hits (`Xanadu', Hold Tight', `Zabadack!' etc) and a few very worthy lesser known gems. There is a very short essay about the band. The remastering is OK, and the sound pretty good.
All in all a decent budget release, and a great way to get your hands on some essential `60s tracks.
