THE PLEASERS - YOU DON'T KNOW


THE PLEASERS - 'You Don't Know'/'Billy' (Arista 209) 1978

The third Pleasers release saw them very much in a powerpop mode especially with 'You Don't Know'. The 60s influence was still in evidence with the harmonies and jangly guitar but this nugget, again produced by Tommy Boyce, had a late 70s contemporary sound.
I'm not sure that the record met with any success saleswise and after three successive flops The Pleasers needed a hit.

'Billy' has a rock and roll vibe but is not my cuppa tea.
