    I wore my Don't Say No "Album" out. It defined a part of my youth. "Lonely is the Night" & Nobody Knows" are 2 of my faves. If you like this, I highly recommend trying out "A View From 3rd Street" by Jude Cole. A Cd I wore out and had every bit the impact of this. Make sure to listen to "Heart of Blues" ,"Hallowed Ground" & "Get Me Through The Night", but there isn't a bad track on it.
