re: " took all my Beatle 45 picture sleeves (original) and thru them OUT!!"

Did you thwack her on the nose with a rolled-up newspaper? Parents are soooooo hard to raise.

My very FIRST CONCERT was The Dave Clark 5 w/ openning act Sonny & Cher At Shady Grove Music Fair in Rockville ,Md. I was only like 8 years old....I think The DC5 were too pop to be considered "heavy" but they were a little different having a saxophone player in the 5 piece group. A super group because of many hit songs. Glad they're in the RnRHOF. They deserve it. Too bad their music is so hard to find.

Certainly no diss to the DC5, but I'm a bit surprised no one has mentioned The Move. Another great 60's British Invasion band, influenced by psychedelia as much as stomping blues. Some great tracks over the years, and Roy Wood is criminally under-appreciated.

'California Man', a great Move song.

When you throw in "heavy" personally the Yardbirds had it. Then maybe LedZep except for that stairway song.

Tom Petty and the HB covered Don't Bring Me down. It's on their live album, Pack Up the Plantation.

They all had heavy songs. LedZep came eons later, four or five generations removed from the original burst of rock music from the Invasion. If you compare the Beatles with early Yardbirds, the same time period, I'd say that the Beatles definitely had the heavier overall recorded sound.
But then, if you've never heard the Dave Clark Five, then you don't know that they were also heavy - without having guitar solos and a lot of guitar in their music.

I like some of The Move's music, but is it me or doesn't it sound derivative? Not trying to diss when I say The Move were sort of like the Oasis of the '60s?

Also, wasn't Roy Wood at one time being considered as lead vocalist for LedZep before Robert Plant

Just thought I'd throw the Faces with Wood Man even that might have been after the actual invasion.

You would have to ask Ron that question. Is that your line of work? Kidding

Never cared for Faces, Ron's best work in my opinion was in Santa Barbera Machine Head.

Thanks for the great feedback. Good folks sure know what your talking about, that "Any Way You Want It" DC5 tune really is powerful and addictive...Wow!

dk pete. yer welcome to disagree, but tell me 'everybody knows' doesn't sound like a walker bros. knock-off that was recorded about the time the walker bros. split. hey. i like that song and the dave clark fives stuff, but brit bands who didn't follow the Beatles lead and some that did wound up on the caberet circuit, where i half hoped the stones would have and should've ended up, had they not recruited the obligatory for the time guitar hero, Mick Taylor.

Hi Jason...actually, we were talking about two different songs.

I'm old enough to remember being so taken with the Zombies' "Time of the Season" that I took the record to a jr. high dance. It gave me chills then -as now. It still remains one of the most original hooks to this day. Though I wouldn't call it heavy necessarily, just original. A heavy brit invasion list for me would have to have Free's "Wishing Well" on it.

I had a band back in the DC5 era. They were cool even in their neat suits but when it comes to heavy music what about the Who " Live at Leeds" or the Who.

In reply to an earlier post on Sep 25, 2009, 9:33:19 AM PDT
V. Gable says:
Live at Leeds, and The Who's heavier music, didn't arrive until well after the initial British Invasion. In my opinion I Can See For Miles was their first "heavy" single. So, musically I agree with you...it's just a timeline issue.

No one remembers Herman and the Hermits, Peter and Gordon, The Seerchers. They ain't heavy but fun and talent with P&G.
