The Standells - Try It (1967)


The Standells' final studio album is a mixed effort, despite the outstanding title track. The early Pink Floyd-like "All Fall Down," "Barracuda," and especially "Riot on Sunset Strip" are top-notch pop-punk, but the record is weighed down by some ill-chosen soul covers and some weak pop material. The CD reissue adds five rare but unremarkable bonus tracks, including outtakes and a non-LP single.



1. The Standells - Can't Help But Love You (2:54)

2. The Standells - Ninety Nine And A Half (4:09)

3. The Standells - Trip To Paradise (3:01)

4. The Standells - St James Infirmary (3:01)

5. The Standells - Try It (2:55)

6. The Standells - Barracuda (3:12)

7. The Standells - Did You Ever Have That Feelin (3:07)

8. The Standells - All Fall Down (2:26)

9. The Standells - Poor Shell Of A Man (2:50)

10. The Standells - Riot On Sunset Strip (2:23)
