first bats, the second, or “sophomore” effort, finds the Throats less wise and more fool. A song about Nick Fury? Ruth, Not So, and Got My Mail Today would quickly become classics around the house. Here he also begins his habit of covering Jim Croce songs. The Throats’ trademark harmonies come to fruition in this collection. The Feebs contributes rhythm guitar to Pants of Youth.
