I have been a music lover all my life and really started buying and collecting music around the time of The Knack's debut album in 1979. My musical tastes cover virtually every style from classical to metal and country to rap (old school that is...). I don't usually write musical reviews due to the subjective nature of people's musical tastes (i.e., just because one person likes or dislikes something doesn't mean everyone else will or should) but this CD really made a HUGE impression on me.

When The Knack's debut album, Get The Knack came out in 1979, I distinctly remember hanging out in one of my buddies' backyard listening to albums on the record player that required running an extension cord from the house. Groups we listened to included Frampton, Kiss, Cheap Trick (Live at Budokan!) among others, and The Knack. Unfortunately, I think the only tracks we listened to from that debut album were "My Sharona" and "Good Girls Don't" and since my friend had a copy of the album, I didn't feel the need to own one (plus I thought those were the only two decent songs they did...until...).

Enter 30+ years later as my never-ending quest to compliment and update my music collection leads me to search bargain bins for CD's containing songs/albums that I don't have in my collection and I discover this gem. Not being a Knack fan in the past (due to my limited exposure to their music) and, therefore, not actively seeking out their material, I was happy to find this CD so I could add "My Sharona" and "Good Girls Don't" to my collection. I decided to listen to the CD on a road trip and was COMPLETELY BLOWN AWAY!! It is extremely rare that I enjoy every song on an album ON THE FIRST LISTEN but this is one of them (and it has 17 songs!).

Ahhh "The Knack" - what can one say about such a diverse band, except that this is a GREAT way to start off! Another possible source for enlightenment is available on Bruce Kulick's excellent Bk3 disk. (It's Doug Fieger's last performance).

The Knack were so much more than "My Sharona" For 5 bucks how can you go wrong here? If you like power pop at all, give this CD a chance.
PS Anyone who felt the Knack werent great musicians give a listen to "Africa."
