Not much I recognize off the top of my head there. But #202 is Tommy James & the Shondells, Cellophane Symphony.

Good catch JPD, I would never have spotted that.

Well, jpd, ya inspired the next round of pix. I have been hesitant to use many albums that just show the artist or a band, often holding their instrument. The game is a bit too easy if I show the face of the musician. So, now here's some pix that fashion experts, 60s or otherwise, should benefit from! :)

Of course, everyone knows My Sharona, but I'll still throw on Oh Tara, (She's So) Selfish or Good Girls Don't now and then.

#220 The Knack - Get The Knack
Image

Back
Image

Close-Up
Image

She's your adolescent dream,
Schoolboy stuff, a sticky sweet romance.
And she makes you want to scream,
Wishing you could get inside her pants.
So, you fantasize away.
And while you're squeezing her, you thought you heard her saying...

"Good girls don't,
Good girls don't,
Good girls don't, but I do."

So, you call her on the phone
To talk about the teachers that you hate.
And she says she's all alone,
And her parents won't be coming home til late.
There's a ringing in your brain,
Cause you could've sworn you though you heard her saying...

"Good girls don't,
Good girls don't,
Good girls don't, but I do."

And it's a teenage sadness
Everyone has got to taste.
An in-between age madness
That you know you can't erase
Til she's sitting on your face
.

You're alone with her at last,
And you're waiting til you think the time is right.
Cause you've heard she's pretty fast.
And you're hoping that she'll give you some tonight.
So, you start to make your play,
Cause you could've sworn you thought you heard her saying...

"Good girls don't,
Good girls don't,
Good girls don't, but I do."

And it's a teenage sadness
Everyone has got to taste.
An in-between age madness
That you know you can't erase
Til she's sitting on your face.

Good girls don't,
Good girls don't,
Good girls don't, but I do...

Yow, Cal. I always thought of The Knack as a guilty pleasure memory of silly songs from way back, but... uh, never like that. Still, it seems the interweb world has not looked kindly at their lyrics over the years and Doug Fieger apparently hasn't helped that by saying a few things about liking young girls. But, he's dead, so there's that.

Get the Knack is one of my favorite albums. But Fieger always seemed to, uh, skew young.

So, after making the Fashion pix, I figgered I might as well make a mini theme for the 4 records that I have that are along the lines of stuff like:

These tended to be marketed in grocery stores and one of them included this wonderful catalog:

So, I'm not necessarily expecting anyone to know these off the top of their head, but here goes:
