Description

Offered for sale is an original UK mono copy of Boys, Boys, Boys by Lesley Gore.

All original 1960s UK Lesley Gore albums were issued in mono only.

About this copy: This copy of Boys, Boys, Boys is a 1964 U.S. pressing on the Mercury label.

The cover is VG+ with a bent corner, a bit of staining on the back cover, and a bit of lamination cracking on the spine.

The mono disc is M-, with a couple of very faint scuffs from the paper inner sleeve.  Clean disc!

A nice copy of a scarce Lesley Gore LP, as her albums sold quite poorly in the UK.

Background: Released in April 1964, Boys, Boys, Boys was the third album by Lesley Gore.

The album reached #127 on the U.S. album charts, with the single “That’s the Way Boys Are” reaching #12 on the U.S. singles chart.

Allmusic.com gave Boys, Boys, Boys a 3 star review:

Lesley Gore’s third album, like all her early LPs, did her image no favors with a title that plugged into her frivolous teenage image. As a record, though, it wasn’t all that bad, though it suffered from lacking any big hits other than “That’s the Way Boys Are,” and was an inconsistent mix without any hidden nuggets. …”I Don’t Wanna Be a Loser” (which just made the Top 40) and “Don’t Call Me” were downright excellent tense and soulful numbers that gave vent to her underrated anguished and angry side. The album also included her first efforts as a composer: the mediocre, generic pop/rocker “Leave Me Alone” and the quite groovy “I’m Coolin’, No Foolin'” (which she co-penned), which has some captivating minor-keyed melodic hooks. Like her second album, Lesley Gore Sings of Mixed-Up Hearts, this actually has some pretty good non-hits that few general rock listeners are aware of, some in a moodier vein than she’s given credit for.
