    The Dave Clark Five were the first British Invasion band to follow the Beatles to the USA in 1964. “In January 1964 they had their first UK top ten single, ‘Glad All Over’, which knocked the Beatles’ ‘I Want to Hold Your Hand’ off the top of the UK Singles Chart. It peaked at No. 6 in the United States in April 1964.” – Wikipedia. This compilation album was released in the same year by Epic Records, featuring “Bits and Pieces”, another hit single which peaked at number two in the UK and number four in the US.

    The band name is set in an all-caps slab with bracketed serifs. Known as Aldine, it was first shown as wood type by William H. Page in his 1870 Specimens of Wood Type. The album title uses Binner (ATF, 1899), the song titles are set in Cooper Black (BB&S, 1922).
