One of my favorite non-sixties bands ever.
This is their most welcome third release.
Check them out, you won't be sorry!!

Ten new songs from Darren Cooper's Three Hour Tour. Coop's joined by Adam Schmitt (bass) and Brad Steakley (drums) and the recordings feature guest appearances by John Richardson and Velvet Crush duo Paul Chastain and Ric Menck. A milestone event for fans of Power Pop, Three Hour Tour is back with their first album in over a decade! Brand new tunes from former Choo Choo Train/Stupid Cupids/Artificial Limbs guitarist Darren Cooper's Three Hour Tour, the long-awaited follow-up to his 90s output on Parasol Records. Darren is joined by an allstar cast for this batch of Power Pop in maximum melodic mode, for fans of Beatles, Badfinger, Raspberries, Velvet Crush, and The Posies!

DON COOPER - What You Feel Is How You Grow (1972)

This is the fourth and last Don Cooper album (at least for Roulette).
It's the first one I got, and it's my favorite of the four. I picked it up at a record fair just because the cover, and specially the back cover looked so good

the song titles sounded so good

and... SHE was there on the backing vocals... (main reason at first sight)!

If you liked the other two albums I posted, you'll love this one even better.
Oh Neebob!

All songs by Don Cooper except for Singing the Blues and Step Away.
Produced by Tom Dawes.
