The Knack: ...But the Little Girls Understand (1979)
This record sums up what happens when a band tries to rush a carbon copy of a successful debut. Only six months had passed when this uninspired record was dropped. They should have taken a breather and put a little more thought into it, but maybe they had nothing left to offer?
I remember the first time I heard Baby Talks Dirty, the lead-off track. The radio DJ said that some staff had listened to it and were calling it My Sharona II. As I said, this LP was a failed attempt to clone the debut record.
Sadly, Doug passed away in 2010.
