A nice reissue of a pretty good garage rock LP.
Background: Released in 1965, Jerk and Twine Time was the second album by the Knickerbockers.
The album did not chart, and there were no charting singles from the album.
Even if you’re a dedicated collector, you should think twice about chasing down this album, which consists almost entirely of British Invasion and R&B covers in the frat rock style and not done especially well. There is a certain level of ambition here, in the cover of the Zombies’ “She’s Not There,” that’s not entirely realized, but the mere fact of this LP’s release in 1965 may well have inspired a few frat bands and garage bands whose members rightfully believed they could generate better (and more interesting) covers of the British Invasion tunes here — so it was probably all to the good at the time, if not worth too much in itself.
