Description

Offered for sale is an original U.S. mono copy of Lies by the Knickerbockers.

About this copy: This copy of Lies is a 1966 U.S. mono pressing on the Challenge label.

The cover is VG and close to VG+, with edge and corner wear and trace ring wear on the back.

The disc is M-, with a very faint hairline through the last two tracks on side two.  The disc has clearly only been played a couple of times.  Clean disc!

A nice copy of a rare LP that is usually found in terrible condition.

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.

Allmusic.com gave Lies a 4 star review:

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.
