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.
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.
