LITTLE GIRLS: The Clear Album: 7” EP

The Little Girls were a bit of surfy, poppy fluff that managed to score both a regional hit (“The Earthquake Song,” which can be found on the Rodney on the Roq Volume 2 compilation) and a video in then-new MTV’s rotation before being lost to time. This 45 is their second “album,” of which twenty clear copies (hence the title) were originally made, featuring three tunes in much the same innocuous pop mold as their previous endeavors. I’m actually old enough to remember “Not a Perfect World” being played on the radio (maybe Rodney was trying to help push it along or something) and they ain’t bad tunes, especially if you dig that safe teen pop sound of yore.
