In 1977, Paul Collins (the Beat) and Peter Case (the Plimsouls) formed the Nerves, and released but one perfect 7” EP before imploding. Those songs (the first four tracks here) pretty much laid the groundwork for the burgeoning power-pop scene sprung from the loins of punk. Along with Case (bass/guitar) and Collins (drums), Jack Lee’s barbed, melodic guitar and own songwriting talent shined; he gave “Hanging On the Telephone” (a hit later for Blondie) a bit of cow-punk twang, and other Lee tracks like “Paper Doll” had a wiry, punk energy. If the Zombies were part of the new wave, they would have sounded like “When You Find Out.” The live version of “Walking Out On Love” hinted at the glorious, brief future of the Beat, and you can hear the fomenting of both the Beat and Plimsouls in this rendition of “Working Too Hard.” Alive Records has blessed us with the original EP, plus a bulging collection of live takes, demos and an unreleased single (tracks five and six).  One Way Ticket is a truly historic document.
