Poppees-Jealousy/She's Got It 7"

here's one for all you fellow early Beatles lovers. this is basically The Beatles but with the Poppees own twist on things. released on the ever great BOMP! records in 1978. i'm not sure where these guys were from but i think it was New York. they weren't around for long but they released two 7"s. this is the second one. the first one has the amazing song "if she cries." i wish i had that 7", but in due time, i will get my hands on it. anyway, on this 7" there are two great songs. there is a demo version of "jealousy" which is just as great, but in a different way. don't you love the way the BOMP! labels on the records look. well i certainly do. nothing really else to say except that i wanted to post this cause it is so great. well that really didn't need to be said but whatever.
1. jealousy 5/5 (so great that even my dad loves it!)
2. she's got it 5/5 (great too. listen closely at the end, very end he yells, "whoo!" i love it.)
overall: 10/10 strongly recommended
you can still buy this from BOMP! for only $5. that's right, only $5! BOMP! also released a LP/CD of the Poppees called "pop goes the anthology" which has both singles, demo tracks (like the one mentioned above) and live tracks. it is well worth the money too. while you're at it, check out the Boyfriends, 20/20 and Jim Basnight releases that BOMP! did as well. they are pure greatness.

  12. Hi Zach, I was going to post this for you, but you beat me to it. The Popees were from Queens, NY, they were around from 1974-1976, and they released two singles. The Ramones covered, I need your love, on Subterranean Jungle, you might want to check it out. Arthur Alexander was also in The Sorrows,another great band you might want to give a listen to.Here's a link for you: http://www.punkglobe.com/arthuralexanderinterview0810.html ,
