Personalities | Cliff Bennett & The Rebel-Rousers | Sixties | Rock

(Vocal group, 1961–69)

If admired as a bandleader, Bennett was also one of few white UK singers able to take on black pop without losing the overriding passion. After six flop singles, covers of The Drifters’ ‘One Way Love’ and ‘I’ll Take You Home’ reached Nos. 9 and 42 respectively, but it was to be nearly two years before a return to the charts with their biggest and final hit, 1966’s ‘Got To Get You Into My Life’, a Beatles number produced by Paul McCartney.
