Could rightly be called "Get theKnack - II",
This review is from: But the Little Girls Understand (Audio CD)
Reviewer Robert Bryan is correct in saying "The Knack had enough songs for a 2 record debut".
According to Doug, "we had about two dozen, and picked the what we thought were the best twelve for the debut".
In fact, "Baby Talks Dirty" was one of the very first songs Doug had written in the early 70s, but never got around to recording.
"My Sharona" came along much later, and was basically a more risqué reworking of "Baby Talks", not the other way around as many mistakingly believe.
Comparing the two songs, I actually like Baby Talks *better*.
My recommendation: get both albums, combine the songs, and treat the collection as "Get the Knack", the way the band had initially intended.
In this light, you get the complete musical picture of The Knack circa 1978. Enjoy!
