Meet Ginny Arnell [Bonus Tracks]

The forced smile that creeps across Ginny Arnell's face on the cover of her MGM debut perfectly captures the adolescent melodrama and puppy love heartache that emanate from the record's oily pores -- when you're young and miserable, not even a major-label record deal can lift your spirits.

[Poker's CD reissue appends six bonus tracks to the original LP release.]
