I only know a few 45s, my favourites being "Pandora's Golden Heebie Jeebies" and the peerless "Along Comes Mary".

I dug up some other, albeit brief, Smiley topics on the subject:

Was wondering what "Pandora's Golden Heebie Jeebies" sounded like. Just played it - now I remember. Hadn't heard that in 50 years. It is a good song.

This is my contribution to the previous Association thread in 2014:

I was just listening to "Come On In" from Birthday and I don't think I've ever heard anything so joyful and glorious.
I'm only aware of their hits & "Pandora's Golden Heebie Jeebie", so I went to check "Come On In" based on your description. I don't share your opinion, to me it was a tad monotonous, the main riff isn't joyful, it's groovy rather.
I mentioned "Pandora" since then many times being favorite Association song. It's still the best.

For the longest time I though that these blokes were Brits! Something about the accents...

I think that my first knowledge of the Association was through "Along Comes Mary," which, to , had that Mersey Beat flavor, and "...why should I cehhh...but she's not thehhh."

That should read "...which seemed to have that Mersey Beat..."

Love this group.  "Never My Love"  and "Everything That Touches You" are both great songs.  "Never My Love" has always been a favorite of mine.  They have some nice harmonies.
