In Mexico a discjockey from Radio Capital heard the b-side of the Dozy Beaky Mick and Tich EP-single Mr. President: Bad News. He was thrilled and played it on his radio station. The DJ (locutor in Mexico) was César Alejandre and the program was "Estudiantes 1260". The result was: a hit in Mexico. So we have releases of DBM&T in that South American country and hardly any of DDDBM&T, plus one L.P.
The L.P. was however released with four songs of DBM&T: Bad News (of course), Mr. President, Festival and Leader Of A Rock'n Roll band.
So far we found one 7" vinyl release in Mexico:
Save Me / Shame
Hold Tight appeared on a more-artists EP, released in 1966:
EP: Philips 1349
La Catedral De Winchester - The New Vaudeville Band
Apriétalo (Hold Tight) - Dave Dee, Dozy, Beaky, Mick and Tich
Sunny - Bobby Hebb
Te Lievo Dentro De Mi - The 4 Seasons
Als released in Mexico: Two maxi singles:
The picturesleeve on the first one (released in 1970) shows Dave Dee, but in fact he already had left the group. A huge mistake from the record company.
Mick has been brutally cut out of the picture.
Philips 6205 007
Mr. President (Amey/Dymond/Davies)
Bad News (Amey/Dymond/Davies)
Frisco Annie (Amey/Dymond/Davies)
The second (and last) Maxi single in Mexico (1971) contained the correct picture. On the B-side the song Too Much appeared. The end of this song mixes on the album towards Mystery Rider. As far as we know this release is the only release were 'Too Much' ended without that Mix.
Philips 6205 009
Leader Of A Rock 'n Roll Band (Davies/Dymond)
Too Much (Dymond)
In 1974 Philips released Hold Tight in the Exitos-serie on an EP with other artists.
A: Aprietalo (DDDBMT) / Dame Algo De Amor (Jordan Brothers)
B: Sunny (Bobby Hebb) / Yo Que no Vivo Sin Ti (Dusty Springfield)
