The roots of The Knack – and some really amazing tracks that were recorded years before their famous debut on Capitol! The sound here is great and gritty – mostly just Doug Feiger and Berton Averre working out tunes in the studio – using guitar and bass, and serving up the vocals with a nicely sneering style! Even more amazing is that most of these tunes were recorded in 1973 and 1975 – yet already show the pair's tremendous ear for a tight riff and unstoppable hook – that core essence of everything we love about The Knack – but with an even rawer feel too. Titles include "Who'll Set You Down", "Little Lies", "Flower My Fate", "Weiss On Rye", "Have A Heart", "Corporation Shuffle", "Get On The Plane", "Lazer Days", and "Good Girls Don't". (Limited edition pressed on clear vinyl. Includes download card with two bonus tracks.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

The Cramps at their early 80s best! Psychedelic Jungle finds The Cramps-style trashy, ghoulish garage-punk-surf-abilly stomp at perhaps its all time finest – with the slow, slinky style at it's most lucid, really – Lux doesn't sound like he's getting ready to choke here, and the ...

As great a rock & roll album as there's ever been!
