“Satisfied With You” by The Dave Clark Five - album review

« album.png »

TJR says

“Satisfied With You” (Epic LN 24212) was the band’s second album in 1966 - and once again it was Stateside only. On the outright honky-tonking album opener (and lead single), “Satisfied With You”, the Dave Clark Five continue to confound expectations. They proceed to follow it with “Go On”, straight out of the Phil Ochs school of moody songwriter. They follow that with “Do You Still Love Me?” a jumpy little pop number that recalls “Love Me Do”. What were these guys all about it? Who were they really? What on earth did the fans make of it all? Not long after that “Look Before You Leap” has me joyously banging the table - the Tottenham boys are back in town. Yay! They generally decide to settle on a mid 60s Beatles vibe along the lines of “You’ve Got To Hide Your Love Away” and “Eight Days A Week” with particularly spooky takes on Lennon / McCartney harmonies and Yardbirds-esque rippers led by the rasp of Mike Smith. What a wonky mixtape…
