Silly name but great sixties music,
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Best of (Audio CD)
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.
