Offered for sale is an original German stereo copy of Lies by the Knickerbockers with two extra tracks that were not included on the U.S. version of the album.
The U.S. album had ten tracks; this one has twelve, including “High on Love” and “Stick With Me.” In the U.S., these tracks were the A and B sides of the non-album single that followed the release of the LP.
About this copy: This copy of Lies is a 1966 stereo pressing on the London label.
The cover is VG, with edge and corner wear and a 2″ (5 cm) tear along the mouth that has been repaired with tape. There is a small 3/4″ (1.5 cm) split at the top right hand corner of the cover.
The disc is VG++ and close to M- with a couple of very light marks on each side. Clean disc!
A nice copy of a rare LP that is usually found in terrible condition. This one’s worth buying just to get “High on Love” on LP.
Background: Released in 1966, Lies was the third and final album by the Knickerbockers.
The album reached #134 on the U.S. album chart and the title track, which had many people thinking it was the Beatles, reached #20 on the U.S. singles chart.
Recorded in Hollywood, with songwriting contributions from such top sessionmen of the day as Glen Campbell, Jim Seals, and Dash Crofts, this is, aside from the first-rate title track, an extremely generic mid-’60s set, with only one group original other than “Lies.” The Knickerbockers never found an identity, alternating between frat rock, flaccid pop/rock, and strange Wall-of-Sound productions in which the producers apparently had visions of turning them into the Walker Brothers.
