The Buckinghams - Don't Want To Cry (1966)

This is exactly the sort of record you wouldn't expect the Buckinghams to make.  When I picked it up at a flea market last summer, I was hoping for it to be some pop tune that I hadn't heard before, given that the band had hits with cheesy numbers like "Back In Love Again" and "Don't You Care".  I never played it, and instead tried to sell it for $3 at a record fair...with no takers.  It wasn't until I saw this record score a 7 out of 9 on the TeenBeat Mayhem garage rock rating scale that I actually listened to it...and WOW.
