Full details

Beat group The Washington DC’s have never had an album entirely devoted to them until now, although Ember came close when they packaged eight of their recordings with both sides of the label’s one Dave Clark Five single, in the wake of the DC5’s subsequent success on another label. Dave Clark Five And The Washington DC’s (FA 2003, 1965) included seven previously unreleased tracks by The Washington DCs, plus Where Did You Go?, the flipside of their sole Ember single, from March 1964. Our compilation takes its title from that missing A-side, Kisses Sweeter Than Wine, and also includes an alternative version of Have You Seen My Baby? and a recording of Return to Me, both of which first surfaced on the Fantastic Voyage compilation Done Me Wrong (FVCD023) in 2009. The group later released two single on CBS in 1966, and one on Domain (Hit-Ton in Germany) in 1968.
