yeah lol that's on the record. But i picked the songs that were LP cuts and therefore not well known as for example "My Sharona" "Good Girls Don't" etc.

Yeah but it was so good that The Knack was not able to acheive anywhere near the standard again on subsequent records.


Hey check out this live version of "Not Fade Away" -

GREAT album. I have on a 'twofer' cd with the follow up album ".........and the little girls understand" which was not as good, the highlight being "Baby talks dirty". I believe Doug, the lead singer, passed away a few months ago.

Doug Fieger and also Bruce Gary are deceased. They died before middle age, so unlikely.
