Now I have publicly declared my L-U-V for Showaddywaddy it will surprise few of you to learn some my favourite records this past winter and spring have been K-Tel compilations and their like.

20 Greatest Hits! 20 Greatest Stars! Stereo! (can also be played on mono) As advertised on T.V!

How's this for a California Sun K-Tel comp? First Class, Jan & Dean, Hondells, Turtles, Joe Jones, Mamas and the Papas, Gary (US) Bonds, Surfaris, Rip Chords, Johnny Rivers, Lovin' Spoonful, Gary Puckett & the Union Gap, Frankie Ford, Gary Lewis & the Playboys, Freddy Cannon, Chantays and Bobby Motherfuckin' Freeman all on one record!

How the fuck do you beat that?

Made and litho' d in Canada in 1976 when Trudeau was Prime Minister.

What a record. What a year. What an asshole.
