The Invasion proceeded quietly but the number of groups and artists reaching the U.S. shores was increasing. 22 recordings resided on the charts during this week. The Dave Clark Five debuted with their 5th charting record “Can’t You See That She’s Mine”. The record entered at number 68 and peaked at number 4 – their 3rd Top Ten hit. Pictured below is a commercial promotional release by 5th Avenue Candy Bars and Columbia Records special products. This extended play featuring other Columbia artists along with the DC5 was released in mid 1964. The song featured was “Bits and Pieces” – an earlier release in 1964
The Rolling Stones continued to remain almost anonymous with “Not Fade Away” fading away. They would soon change this pattern later in the Summer.
This LP by “The Beats” came out right around June 1964. God only knows who the “Beats” were – and only knows why anyone would purchase the record. I did – but 40 years later.
