    In a way the only Kingsmen LP you need—their first three albums all have great songs and playing but are ruined with patently fake applause overdubs and horrible EQ—heartbreakingly unlistenable (what were they thinking?). This presents all the clean studio single takes in great sound. Miraculous this LP even exists, frankly.
