Havin A Rave Up – Live In Los Angeles 1978

CD (Item 612441) Omnivore, 1978 — Condition: New Copy
Out Of Stock


4.80 10

Raw, rare material from The Knack – a previously-unissued live performance from 1978 – recorded a year before their famous debut! We love that album to death, but the group have even more bite here – a rough-edged quality that's almost garagey at points – and which does a great job of linking together the Sunset Strip energy of both the 60s and 70s scenes – really showing that LA evolution that birthed The Knack in the first place! Most of the tunes here are familiar from the first album, but the versions here are much more powerful – almost like hearing some gritty demos of the band in formation. Titles include "Daughter Of The Law", "She's So Selfish", "Art War", "My Sharona", "That's What The Little Girls Do", "Good Girls Don't", "Let Me Out", "End Of The Game", "It's Alright", and "Your Number Or Your Name".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.
