Bits And Pieces - Dave Clark Five

by Dick Mac

I bought this single in 1964 at Sears Roebuck on Park Drive in Boston. I went there with one of the other kids from the projects. Usually we would steal stuff, but this time I had a dollar.

I clutched the 7" 45 RPM treasure in its little brown paper bag (no more than a sleeve really) all the way home across Brookline Avenue, through The Fens, by the Gardner Museum, up Evans Way, across Route 9, through the parking lot of the Howard Johnson's, across Ward Street, and up Oregon Court to 104 McGreevey Way.

I played it over and over again on my mother's record player.

I don't know when or why I stopped playing it. Probably when I got my next single.
