Record shopping at Reckless last week I came across something I had never seen, an Everlast single (12" Maxi) for "I Got The Knack," released in 1990.
Yep, kind of unbelievable, and very old school, if anything ever was. I had owned this as a kid on cassette single, remember those?
They were affordable and fun, but very shortlived, and rightly so. Vinyl was much more pleasing to the eyes, and ears, and served a much better purpose.
But I digress. I loved the song and hadn't heard it in over 20 years. So, I bought it and have been spinning it since.
If you're unaware, Everlast got his start as a member of Ice-T's Rhyme Syndicate. Ice-T released his first solo album Forever Everlasting (1990), which this single was taken from. He also guest-starred on Ice-T's The Iceberg/Freedom of Speech... Just Watch What You Say! album with a bunch of other Syndicate members, and stole the show.

If you haven't heard it, you have to go back and listen to it. Everlast is definitely in effect.
