Clap Your HandsBeau-MarksOne of the early bands to come out of Canada to make the U.S. charts was the Beau-Marks. Their hit “Clap Your Hands” was number 1 on the Canadian charts but only made it as far as number 45 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100, but big enough to have Dick Clark put the group on American Bandstand. Released on Shad records in the states, the 45 can get you $25.00.  Their album “The High Flying Beau-Marks,” released on Canada’s Quality record label in 1960, is worth up to $200.00 today.
