The Real Kids - All Kindsa Girls / Common At Noon 45

The Real Kids – All Kindsa Girls / Common At Noon – Sponge Records
This single is, as far as I know, the first recorded output by the amazing Real Kids. All Kindsa Girls is a completely different version from the LP (on Red Star Records) and truly super! It’s longer, with a cool break-down in the middle, before roaring back with a wild solo with Felice yelping over the top until the fade! Everyone knows that the album version is fantastic, but this is another excellent take on the tune!
Common at Noon is the rare “ballad” for the Real Kids. It’s a terrific take on love lost that will definitely pull at your heart strings! The xylophone (vibes?) adds a nice, Buddy Holly-esque touch to the song!
I don’t know if these songs have been reissued on anything yet, but any fan of 70’s punk-pop needs to get this somehow!
