THE CLICHES - SAVE IT FOR ME



THE CLICHES - "Save It For Me" / "Why, Why, Why" (Wes Mar Records 1020) March 1966

Here's an obscure and very pleasant love ballad by a group called The Cliches from Canton, Ohio. Notable for it's jangle and quite basic song structure and performance. I particular dig the backing especially the drums which keep an unobtrusive beat. I have visions of a kid, barely out of school age, concentrating so hard to get his part right.

The other side "Why, Why, Why" is a crude frat rocker which actually scored higher in "Teenbeat Mayhem" but for my money the soft teen ballad with jangle gets my vote.
