Philips Studios, Stanhope House, 2-4 Stanhope Place, London W2, England [Released on 31/05/68]
Recording sessions for If No-One Sang LP (produced by Steve Rowland)
If No-One Sang / Where From, Where To / I’ve Got A Feeling / In A Matter Of A Moment / Look At Me / The Tide Is Turning / Breakout / Time To Take Off / If No-One Sang / The Castle Far / Charlie Farns Barns, Has Won The Pools

Some of these tracks were completed, although some more would be recorded in February ‘68. The last two remained unreleased, probably from 1967, as they were recorded on 4-track. The album, scheduled for a January release, was delayed until May ’68.

Disc & Music Echo (11 November 1967): Dave Dee for ‘top stars’ TV series
Dave Dee are close to completing their next LP for January release. “It’s a lot more ambitious than anything they’ve done before. We’re using a full orchestra and big arrangements. The boys are also writing some good new material themselves.” [...]

Explained Ken Howard, co-manager with Alan Blaikley, of Dave Dee and Co. and the Herd.

Hong-Kong single release: Joe Jr. & the Side-Effects – Here’s A Heart (Diamond 255)
This Dave Dee & Co. cover went to N°1 in Hong-Kong, staying at the top for seven weeks (it was still a British colony at the time, with many British groups coming on Tour)

In 1967, Joe Jr. (Jose Marie Rodrigues) discovered a ballad from a British band Dave Dee, Dozy, Beaky, Mick & Tich on a B side called Here’s A Heart. It was released as the A side of Joe Jr. & The Side Effects new single. This piano driven sentimental ballad proved to be his most successful single in Hong Kong ever. Seven weeks consecutively at the top of Hong Kong RTHK pop chart.

Record Mirror n°347: ” Is Dozy Dozy ? Dave & Co., try to supply the answer…”

INSIDE the recording studio a bunch of allegedly Dynamic American record producers were working on a record to be marketed in German supermarkets for the greater glorification of Coca Cola. A simple enough task, featuring the musical craftsmanship of Dave Dee, Dozy, Beaky, Mick and Tich (who don’t mess about when there’s a job of work to be done) but it was taking a little time since these Dynamic fellows were, it seems, in search of Perfection and prepared to take all day.

Which meant that I, who’d come to talk to Dozy and Tich, had to sit around waiting. This was no great hardship since Alan Blaikely (who, as half of Howard Blaikely, is co-manager and co-composer of the group’s hits) came over and talked about the thinking behind their latest disc “Zabadak”.

Disc & Music Echo: Scene – All the week’s pop gossip

It was Sammy Juste’s farewell appearance on last week’s “Top Of The Pops.” This week Sam left for a new career in America – where she will be nearer boyfriend Micky Dolenz of the Monkees. She’s seen here with producer Johnnie Stewart and Alan Freeman getting a friendly hug and send-off from her last show.

All parents are, they say, proud of their children, and Dave Dee and Co’s are no different! They dropped in to last week’s “Top Of The Pops” where the group were appearing and were caught by photographer Harry Goodwin in a pointed discussion over Dave Dee’s interview in last week’s Disc.

Seen in the picture: Dave Dee, standing behind his mother, and Beaky behind his parents.

Disc and Music Echo: Dave Dee & Co. Far-East Tour in 1968, UK Tour in the spring

Dave Dee for ‘top stars’ TV series
Dave Dee, Dozy, Beaky, Mick and Tich lead a line-up of top pop names behind an idea for a revolutionary TV series being considered for world-wide distribution.
[...]
Ken [Howard] also revealed that Dave Dee, Dozy, Beaky, Mick and Tich would DEFINITELY tour Britain in a major package next spring. The group would probably co-top the bill on a trek lasting at least three weeks around March and April.
This would be the last part of a world trip also taking in Singapore, Hong Kong and America again.
Continued Ken: “Their O.K.A.Y. hit is in the chart in Japan and we’ve had offers for them there for a week touring at the beginning of January. Following this would be other Far East dates and a proposed tour of American colleges.”
“Zababak” – number three this week in the chart and topping 200,000 in sales – has been delayed for States release. The group is in the process of switching labels. The hit may now be out on Liberty.
Dave Dee are close to completing their next LP for January release. “It’s a lot more ambitious than anything they’ve done before. We’re using a full orchestra and big arrangements. The boys are also writing some good new material themselves.”

(USA) Billboard November 18, 1967 page 36: Album Reviews – Pop Special Merit
Soul My Way
Jerry Lee Lewis
Smash MGS 27097 (M); SRS 67097 (S)
This LP has all of the power of Lewis of old, yet is hippie-deep with commercial impact for today’s generation. “Shotgun Man” is blues, “Treat Her Right” is pop. “Turn on Your Love Light” is soul-plus. With exposure, Lewis could come back stronger than ever.

Jerry Lee Lewis was the first to record a country “Just Dropped In (To See What Condition My Condition Was In)” written by Mickey Newbury, which was picked up by The First Edition in 1968 who made it a #5 Pop Hit. That same year, Dave Dee, Dozy, Beaky, Mick & Tich used it for a BBC session.
Tracks:
Turn on Your Love Light/It’s a Hang Up Baby/Dream Baby/Just Dropped In/Wedding Bells/He Took It Like A Man/Hey! Baby/Treat Her Right/Holdin’ On/Shotgun Man/I Bet You’re Gonna Like It.

(Germany) Bravo n°49 page 36: Hit-verdächtig (Hit suspicious)
Eine Superscheibe – Dave Dee, Dozy, Beaky, Mick & Tich fanden auch für ihre neueste Platte einen höchst ungewöhnlichen Rhythmus. Bei “Bend it” machten sie auf griechisch. Bei “Okay!” auf  russisch. Bei Zabadak! (Star-Club 148 595) ist ihr Beat afrikanisch-kubanisch-südamerikanisch. Sie singen die eingängige Melodie wie gewohnt in perfekter Harmonie. Die Congatrommeln kontrastieren sehr wirkungsvoll mit den satten Streicherklängen.

Bravo Musicbox: for the first time since May 1966, there is no Dave Dee, Dozy, Beaky, Mick & Tich Hit record this week in the Bravo Top Twenty. A unique instance, already over one week later…

Zabadak. The sun goes down. FONTANA 267.770 MF (45 t simple – 6,50 F)
Un groupe qui a le coup pour renouveler ses succès en Grande-Bretagne. Un rythme afro-cubain, une mélodie qui accroche, un thème sud-américain ; mais qu’est-ce que le “Zabadak”? L’autre face (“The sun goes down”) est aussi bien enlevée. J.B. (Jacques Barsamian)
