The Dave Clark Five at one time were considered the equal of The Beatles. While that quickly passed, they produced a number of rocking singles that were some of the best of their era.
“You Got What It Takes” was issued during the early spring of 1967. It would prove to be their last big hit in the United States as their career was beginning to draw to a close. The single would reach number seven on the BILLBOARD MAGAZINE Pop Charts. It contained just about the grittiest vocal performance of Mike Smith’s career.
The Dave Clark Five were one of very few groups never to have a reunion. They are now members of The Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame.
