All The Best From The Knack
Jeffrey T. Munson | Dixon, IL | 09/22/2005
(4 out of 5 stars)

"I can remember the summer of 1979 when "My Sharona" was released. I was going in to my freshman year of high school, and I heard that song, along with "Good Girls Don't" playing on the radio all the time. Needless to say, I was glad to find a cd that contained both of these songs from my high school years, as well as some other pretty good songs as well.

The Knack gets most of their acclaim for their highly successful debut album, which included "Your Number or Your Name" and "(She's So) Selfish)", which are on this disc as well. But their second album, "But The Little Girls Understand" is good in its own right, and I was glad to see that "Baby Talks Dirty" from that album was included on this cd. There's some other songs on this disc that I've never heard before, such as "Africa" and "Don't Look Back", but they still have that distinctive Knack sound.

This is a very good cd. Their signature songs ("My Sharona" and "Good Girls Don't") headline the list of songs, but the others are good as well. Pick up this great disc and hear the anthology of one of the early 80's first great rock and roll groups. (By the way, the Knack's lead singer really did date a girl named Sharona)."
