- SOLD OUT!!!! WOW!!! In 2003, ex-Beatifics Andy Schultz and Paul Novak teamed up to form Betty Drake with the sole purpose to create “sugar sweet pop licks with maximum ampage and minimum pretense…genuinely strong, witty soulful confections” – Pulse Of The Twin Cities. That’s putting it quite modestly – this CD rocks and pops with the best of them! "They churn out melodic pop that owes a bit to The Beatles and other bands of the British Invasion!" - PopMatters.com "I am a fan of classic rock and pop and a sucker for a good melody and a catchy hook. Simply put, this album is astonishing. Their ability to craft and perform songs of such a high caliber is stunning, and it shines all over this record! The opening one-two-three punch of 'Just Like That' and 'Time Will Never Tell", and "Funny Forever" set the tone for the whole album. Ringing lead guitars, propulsive drums and compelling vocals. Brimming with great tunes, well sung and recorded, this album is nothing but pop....pure, straight and beautiful pop it is with slightly crunchy jingly jangly guitars and harmonies. Melodies, rhythms, lyrics all combine to create a rocking pop sound that will not leave any true music lover disappointed. Either you love this stuff ...or you don't! I don't give many 5-star ratings, but this album deserves to be on your 'must-have' list of Power Pop releases." - Max Humphries Great songs, loads of hooks, great harmonies, and omnipresent Posies-like crunchy guitars! Can't say enough about this one! A true gem! GREAT!!!!
