Little Jimmy Osmond: Killer Joe (MGM SE 4855)
Greg Shaw, Rolling Stone, 1 February 1973
WHO SAYS rock & roll is dead? Certainly not Mike Curb. Not only is he recycling his own career, signing up everybody he can find from his old Sidewalk Records days including Davie Allen & the Arrows, and getting Little Jimmy to record 'Long Haired Lover from Liverpool', a novelty song Curb produced originally for Christopher Kingsley back in '64 or so, but he's making sure the songs of his own youth live again among the youths of today he manipulates so well.
