Album Cover
The Bats
How Pop Can You Get

Album US 1982 on Gustav Records label
Rock and Pop (Power Pop)

Laminated front of jacket. Printed inner sleeve with group drawing on one side and lyrics on the other. "Living In Alaska" and "Hey Teen-age" are early eight track sessions, some of our first. We had so much fun that it seemed that re-recording for the sake of higher tech would have been an anti climax. Pardon the hiss level. Our first single "Popgun" (GT-003A) which is heard closing side one and opening side two is used courtesy of Gustav Records
