disappointing self-promotion
8 June 2014 | by (mpls) – See all my reviews

I like the Dave Clark 5. Mike Smith had one of the best-ever rock-n-roll voices. Clark's drumming was distinctive and memorable.

GLAD ALL OVER is, regrettably, a disappointment. I can't help but feel that Clark(the producer of the piece) made this because he was worried about his place in music history.

The use of the same songs 'over and over and over again' made me anything but 'glad all over'. Could've used some of the more interesting non- hits(THE RED BALLOON?) instead of being so endlessly repetitive. Cutting Tom Hanks' Hall of Fame induction speech for the DC5 into reusable snippets made the speech seem boring and interminable.

I had always thought that the stage musical TIME sounded interesting, this made it appear hopelessly self-important and terribly dated; Besides which it really had nothing to do with the band.

Hopefully, at some point an independent filmmaker will do a definitive documentary on this excellent band.
