Dave Dee, Dozy, Beaky, Mick and Tich’s single ‘Hold Tight’ was at its peak UK chart position of #4. This Wiltshire band's only previous hit had been a #26 single ('You Make It Move, late 1965) but they were now entering a successful four-year period that would see them score eight Top Tens in the UK, although they never made it in the US.
The song was used in the soundtrack to the 2007 Quentin Tarantino film Death Proof.
