Vinyl LP pressing. 2012 collection of early demos from the band that would shoot to superstardom in the late '70s. Consisting of demo recordings made in 1973 and 1975, Rock & Roll is Good For You The Fieger/Averre Demos takes listeners to the genesis of Doug Fieger and Berton Averre's songwriting and recording partnership: one that lasted nearly four decades until Fieger's tragic passing in 2010. All 16 track are previously unissued and feature version of songs known ("Good Girls Don't" and "That's What The Little Girls Do," eventually recorded and released on Get The Knack) and unknown. There are even songs Knack fans will recognize in different versions, reworked or rewritten for later projects. A riff here, a hook there - it's a scavenger hunt for some and a blissful pop experience for others. This release is a fascinating look at how Doug's partnership with Berton helped steer a course from a more progressive 70s sound to the power-pop The Knack used to break discos hold on the airwaves with 1979s "My Sharona."
