Vinyl-a-Day 39: The Outsiders “Time Won’t Let Me” (Capitol, 1966)

The Outsiders “Time Won’t Let Me” (Capitol, 1966)

The full-length album to accompany this Cleveland band’s biggest hit, the seminal garage rocker “Time Won’t Let Me” (it’s all about that 12-string, baby!). Though the other tracks never quite reach the same level as the hit single, which sold over a million copies, it’s an enjoyable garage-rock/pop album. It features their follow-up hit, “Girl in Love,” with enjoyable covers of “Listen People,” “Maybe Baby,” “My Girl” and other hits of the era rounding out the rest of the album. Given the strength of the originals, the band might have been better off in the long run had the album consisted entirely of their own songwriting, although it was probably the suits at Capitol who insisted on the covers.
