THE CLICHES – SAVE IT FOR ME

THE CLICHES – \”Save It For Me\” / \”Why, Why, Why\” (Wes Mar Records 1020) March 1966

Here\’s an obscure and very pleasant love ballad by a group called The Cliches from Canton, Ohio. Notable for it\’s jangle and quite basic song structure and performance. I particular dig the backing especially the drums which keep an unobtrusive beat. I have visions of a kid, barely out of school age, concentrating so hard to get his part right.

The other side \”Why, Why, Why\” is a crude frat rocker which actually scored higher in \”Teenbeat Mayhem\” but for my money the soft teen ballad with jangle gets my vote.
