The Dave Clark Five appeared on “Thank Your Lucky Stars” in October ’63 followed by singing what became a hit, “Glad All Over” in November on Ready Steady Go!. They got their big break on The Ed Sullivan Show in March 1964, lip synching to “Bits and Pieces, Do You Love Me, and Glad All Over. The toured the UK and Europe for a couple of months after returning to London. They returned to the US and a return engagement on The Ed Sullivan Show on 30 May, and 1 Nov ’64. Though they were promoted heavily in the US recording circuit with television engagements in the US and UK, their success was limited. In 1964, The Beatles were a great distraction for American youth after JFK was shot and young soldiers were being sent off to Viet Nam which became a dividing issue between generations. The squeaky clean image of the DC5 singing, “Glad All Over” didn’t relate to youth who were experiencing the angst of the times like The Animals and the Rolling Stones who brought a bluesy element to pop music.
