 DCF almost reached the UK Top 50, bubbling under from 08 June 1967 for 2 weeks, in my database i have listed peak position as #51 as a result. It also charted in New Zealand in august 1967 peaking at #2

 You've just encountered someone who actually likes "Tabatha Twitchit". I think it's a nice jolly little song and it deserved a better fate than it met.

 THE DOMINO'S from south africa had a southern african hit with their version of this - check out their pressing also to be found on 45cat

 I'm a DC5 fan and like "Tabatha Twitchit". But I'm a pop fan, so...

 A total embarrassment. Dave Clark chose to follow up the gritty R+B Soul tinged stomper "You Got What It Takes" with this chirpy banal piece of nonsense that sounds like it had been rejected from that year's Eurovision Song Contest. Even the title alone is enough to make a grown man wince with embarrassment. It is hated by the vast majority of DC5 fans... I've yet to encounter one who actually likes it.

Thankfully some relief could be found on the B side which is a genuine oddity in the DC5 catalogue. Written by saxophonist Denis Payton (Dave always added his name to every original DC5 composition so he could snaffle half the songwriting royalties plus he owned the publishing...) it also features Denis' one and only lead vocal, since that's him taking the verses.
