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.

Boy dislikes girl. The girl dislikes that boy. People dislike the boy AND girl. Question - WHO dislikes these people?

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."

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.

I'm a longtime fan. When I was a kid we had a copy of The Greatest Hits album in our house thanks to my older sister, so at an early age I became familiar not only with their hits, but gems like 'No Fair At All', 'Time For Livin' and 'Like Always'. I was there the first day when Rhino released that 2 CD anthology. I even got a chance to see them live in 1972 on the Steel Pier singing the old hits and promoting their last LP 'Waterbeds In Trinidad' and the song 'Kicking the Gong Around'. I always really loved the weird audacity of this record 'Happiness Is' from the 1967 'Insight Out' album and have made my own tribute to the band:
