The Knack’s Round Trip turns 29Posted on Monday, October 4th, 2010 at 8:23 pm by Jim Falkenstein
“We wanted to take it to the next place with Round Trip. It wasn’t gonna be black-and-white anymore, we were gonna add some color to the mix” according to Doug Fieger.
The album was produced by Jack Douglas – fresh off his work on John Lennon & Yoko Ono’s Double Fantasy – and it was unlike anything the band has delivered before. Forays into jazz and psychedelia mixed with the power-pop The Knack were so good at. Featuring appearances from jazz legend Tom Scott, Flying Burrito Brother “Sneaky Pete” Kleinow, Flo & Eddie of The Turtles and the Chicago horn section, it is now revered as one of the band’s finest works.
Round Trip got a digital release in June of 2010 and physical copies of this hard to find classic are available at Knack.com.
