Just Like Us! is the fourth studio album by American pop rock group Paul Revere & the Raiders. Produced by Terry Melcher and released on January 3, 1966, by Columbia Records, it featured the U.S. hit single "Just Like Me". Unlike their later albums, on which Mark Lindsay was the primary lead singer, the lead vocal duties on Just Like Us! were split among him and the other band members, guitarist Drake Levin, bassist Phil Volk, and drummer Mike Smith.[2]

Release and reception[edit]

Just Like Us! was the band's first album to be released after they had started appearing regularly on the 1960s television variety show Where the Action Is.[2] The album peaked at number five on the Billboard 200 albums chart.[4] It was certified gold by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) on January 6, 1967.[5] The album cover art was taken from a Guy Webster photo session at Clark Gable's ranch in Encino, California.

This album was remastered and rereleased May 19, 1998 by Sundazed Records with extra tracks.
