The cover of Greg Kihn's debut was shot outside Rather Ripped Records in Berkeley, where the tunesmith worked behind the counter for his day job. In fact the shoot was knocked out during his break. Recorded with Earthquake guitarist Robbie Dunbar at the old CBBS Studios on San Francisco's Folsom Street, the debut is full of strumming acoustic guitars and hooky melodies. The power pop stylings that would kick off a 40 year career of "rock kihn roll" and album titles with bad puns are still a few years off. The deep cut "Kid From Louieville" is the the cut that deserves the most repeated listens.
