Very groovy vocals on "the jukies ball" - a delightful recording. And "how can I miss you" remind me for some weird reason (well there's a thematic similarity...) of schön von hinten by Stereo Total - first thing that struck me. Makes little sense, still it has me thumping the rhythm with a happy face.

Intriguing and fun!

Growing up in the bay area, saw them a few times and their 1st 3 albums are favorites.......
