I have the first two albums on vinyl but no longer have a record player . Looking through the CD`s for sale I thought I would like to get one with tracks from the other albums I had not heard before.
I was not disappointed . This CD really shows how the bands music progressed and just how versatile they were . Tracks on there I had not heard before were excellent and makes it hard to believe they had so few hits in the UK .
Would have given it a five star rating but there were some tracks missing that I like.

All The Best From The Knack 22 Sept. 2005
By Jeffrey T. Munson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I can remember the summer of 1979 when "My Sharona" was released. I was going in to my freshman year of high school, and I heard that song, along with "Good Girls Don't" playing on the radio all the time. Needless to say, I was glad to find a cd that contained both of these songs from my high school years, as well as some other pretty good songs as well.

The Knack gets most of their acclaim for their highly successful debut album, which included "Your Number or Your Name" and "(She's So) Selfish)", which are on this disc as well. But their second album, "But The Little Girls Understand" is good in its own right, and I was glad to see that "Baby Talks Dirty" from that album was included on this cd. There's some other songs on this disc that I've never heard before, such as "Africa" and "Don't Look Back", but they still have that distinctive Knack sound.

This is a very good cd. Their signature songs ("My Sharona" and "Good Girls Don't") headline the list of songs, but the others are good as well. Pick up this great disc and hear the anthology of one of the early 80's first great rock and roll groups. (By the way, the Knack's lead singer really did date a girl named Sharona).

Sorry you didn't get it.... 13 Mar. 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Sorry Peter, but you really didn't get it. I don't know what your personal tastes are, but The Knack is just fine for me. I'm 48, saw The Beatles in '65, and spent my high school years in the Summer of Love in San Francisco. I wish more artists today had an ounce of this band's energy, wit, talent, chutzpah, and just plain damn simple dedication to ROCK N' ROLL.

GET THE KNACK 13 Dec. 2009
By MRT - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Back before NWHM there was this power pop/rock band with the number one album of the year 1979. what you get here is a good overview of THE KNACK.The Knack are known primarily for their '79 smash "My Sharona" which envokes image of teenage lust . The rest of the album is much of the same. Great pop tunes, lovely harmonies and no nonsense musicianship that bring back memories of lost youth and happy times. The late '70s LA Power Pop scene was a fertile period for music.

One Of The Best Compilations 5 Mar. 2013
By David D. McFarland - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
This band started on fire and kind of faded away but they were always compared to The Beatles at the beginning which, was a lot of pressure to bare in my opinion. This one really shows they were a excellent power pop band and had different styles. I like about every song on this one & think it is actually better then the other greatest hits album they put out. About the only song missing on here might be "Frustrated", but other then that, a few songs could have been added or dropped. So by all means, check it out, it is a real good listen and one of the best power pop rock band compilations.
Drop by my website sometime @ "JudeMac Forever" & look around.

An Excellent Primer 7 Nov. 2010
By Fitzy - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
Ahhh "The Knack" - what can one say about such a diverse band, except that this is a GREAT way to start off! Another possible source for enlightenment is available on Bruce Kulick's excellent Bk3 disk. (It's Doug Fieger's last performance).
