Tapestry of Delights:
Bennett came from Slough (so it has some claim to fame) and formed the Rebel Rousers back in 1961, having previously sung in various obscure late fifties acts. Their early 45s (circa 1961-62) were produced by Joe Meek. Eventually they were seen by a talent spotter from the Star Club in Hamburg and enticed over there, where they played with many of the top acts of the era. The talent spotter was veteran keyboardist Roy Young who'd led the Star Club's house band for several years - in late 1963 he joined their line-up. They built up a solid reputation but hit singles continued to elude them. In July 1964 Frank Allen left to join The Searchers and Bobby Thompson took over bass duties. Eventually One Way Love gave them a Top Ten hit.
In June 1965 the line-up changed again when Wendells was sacked for being drunk and disorderly (he ended up with Lulu's Luvvers) and Thompson who wasn't suited to the band's strict discipline and clean cut image joined The Rockin' Berries.
Chas Hodges (from The Outlaws) and later John Golden joined for what was their most durable and successful line-up (C). With Brian Epstein as their manager their fortunes improved and they achieved their commercial zenith with a cover of Paul McCartney's Got To Get You Into My Life, which he also produced for them. This can also be heard on the Juke Box Jive compilation.
In early 1968 Cliff wanted to change the band's style to keep apace with the rapidly changing musical world. The remainder of the band was unenthusiastic and when he was sent to Germany to do some TV promotional work he was ousted as frontman by Roy Young and the outfit became The Roy Young Band.
When Bennett returned he formed a new Cliff Bennett Band and was later in Toe Fat. In 1971 he released Cliff Bennett's Rebellion (CBS S 64487), the sleeve notes of which say that it was a collaboration between Bennett and a group called Spiggy Topes.... It has an excellent version of Green's 'Sandy Mary'.
Much later in 1975 Bennett formed the short-lived Shanghai, before quitting the music business in 1976.
