The five friends 'David Harman' (Dave Dee) 'Trevor Ward-Davis' (Dozy) 'John Dymond' (Beaky)
'Michael Wilson' (Mick) and 'Ian Amey' (Tich) from Wiltshire formed the group back in 1961,
however it wasn't until 1964 they became noticed, songwriters 'Ken Howard' and 'Alan Blaikley'
wanted to give them a go in the recording studios, it was the following year when the group
crept into the Top 30 with 'You Make It Move' after which they had Ten Top Ten hits over a two
year spell, followed by a few lower order successes.
The Group became part of Pop-History with hit sounds such as - 'Hold Tight' (No '4' 1966) -
'Hideaway' (Chart '10' 1966) 'Bend It' (Chart '2' 1966) 'Save Me' (Chart '3' also 1966) then in
1967 - 'Touch Me Touch Me' (Chart '13') 'Okay' (Chart '4') 'Zabadak' (Chart '3') and in 1968
'The Legend Of Zanadu' (The Groups only number '1') 'Last Night In Soho' (Chart '8') and
'The Wreck Of The Antoinette' (Chart '14') the following year they did achieve a couple more
lower order hits.
The group did achieve success abroad in particularly in the Commonwealth Countries, the group
split in 1969, when 'Dave Dee' tried to pursue a solo career with very little success, the group
reformed in the 90's and still perform today/
On this album though not in release and chart order, all the groups hits are on-board.

The other reviewer (# 1 reviewer too!) is right in that it may be a silly name - but it really is their nicknames. The other thing that he got right is that they were really very very good indeed. Anybody who saw them on stage in their heyday will know that very few bands ever wanted to follow them. And before you sneer, oh doubtful ones, remember that Tich was voted World's Best guitarist in the 60s and nobody argued: he was a friend of, and jammed with, Jimi Hendrix: he played some cracking guitar on stage at the Heartbreak Hotel Club on Ibiza (Phil Carson's gaff) when the band backed .... Robert Plant (with a little help from Tony Kaye and Chris Squires of Yes): and that in the sixties the Boys outsold the Beatles in many counties.

This run through of their greatest hits shows that they could sing and play to perfection, with fantastic vocal harmonies, honed by what must be a million gigs over the last 40-plus years. "Hold Tight", "The Wreck of the Hesperus", "Xanadu" are all great pure pop songs and the only tragedy is that they were all written by Ken Howard and Alan Blaikley, the Stock Aitken Waterman of the day, and that the Boys' own songs were largely unrecorded until late in the day.

Remember that these lads shared the stage with everybody, and I mean everybody, from the Beatles to the Stones to Hendrix to you name it and never came off second best. A fantastic and overlooked band, with a lot of these songs being recorded in a few hours in one or two takes.

Do yourselves a favour, I dare you - listen to this disc and then get tickets to see Dave Dee, D B M and T at Salisbury City Hall in March 2006. This still-gigging band, still huge in Europe, will blow away all your pre-conceptions.

This was not the only sixties group to have a silly name – Creedence Clearwater Revival was another that immediately comes to mind – and it didn’t stop them making some upbeat, guitar-based rock music of really quality. It seems that they failed to make any impact in America, but they had thirteen hits in their native Britain between 1966 and 1969, many going high in the top ten.
Their only number one hit was The legend of Xanadu, but Zabadak reached number two while Save me, Bend it and Hold tight all reached number four. All these hits plus all their lesser hits and a few misses are included here.
Although most (but not all) of the songs are upbeat, fun songs, there is a remarkable variety of styles within this collection. Dave Dee Dozy Beaky Mick and Tich may well be the best British group of the sixties to fail in America. Although not up to the standard of the Beatles or the Rolling stones (who else was?), they were certainly as good as many British groups that did make it in America.
