Album Review

This may be a lost album, but it might be stretching things to call it a "great" lost album. The Knickerbockers were a solid frat rock band from New Jersey who managed a fabulous Beatles pastiche with "Lies" in 1966, and nearly duplicated the feat with their follow-up, "One Track Mind." Unfortunately that was pretty much it. This collection of unreleased tracks and (mostly) stereo remixes does little to change the Knickerbockers' status as one-hit wonders. Not that anything here is patently bad, but aspirations aside, most of this album is truly forgettable.

Actually a frat rock band from New Jersey who didn't write much of their own material, they never made anything else as successful. A couple decent follow-ups — "One Track Mind" and the similarly mock-British Invasion "High on...
