Title: Havin a Rave Up: Live in Los Angeles 1978
Label: Omnivore Recordings

In 1978, radio and retail were engulfed in Disco, and it seemed that the momentum wouldn't stop. But, something else was happening in the clubs of Los Angeles. People were dancing, but to a different beat. By May of that year, Doug Fieger, Berton Averre, Prescott Niles and Bruce Gary decided to take their act public. Calling themselves The Knack, they first took the stage at the infamous Whisky a Go-Go on the fabulous Sunset Strip. What happened over the following months was that of legend. The Knack sold out clubs all over Los Angeles. Guests like Bruce Springsteen, Tom Petty, Stephen Stills, Eddie Money and the Doors Ray Manzarek joined them on stage-and every record label in the country wanted to sign this phenomenon. The Knack's appeal was a one-two punch; not only did they have great songs, but they were an amazingly tight live band. This release is a fantasy compilation of two of those performances; a trip back in time on a ribbon of acetate. For all of you who were not lucky enough to hear them live, raw and unsigned, this is your chance to experience the electric thrill of those days when The Knack was havin' a rave-up.
