Product Description:

The Byrds may have been the first American band to fuse folk and rock, but the Lovin' Spoonful were a much closer reflection of the New York folk scene of the '60s, with their open-hearted jug band music mixed with upbeat rock and blues. John Sebastian, the group's leader, gave the Spoonful a distinctive sound not only with his deceptively simple, beautifully crafted songs, but with his amplified autoharp, an instrument that was practically unique to the group. The Lovin' Spoonful spun off a superb collection of hit singles between 1965 and 1968, and The 60s: The Lovin' Spoonful features ten of their best and best-known songs, from the sweetly romantic "Daydream" and "Do You Believe in Magic" and the hard-rocking "Summer in the City" to the joyous country homage "Nashville Cats" and the gorgeous yearning of "Darling Be Home Soon." Released in 2000, The Lovin' Spoonful's Greatest Hits is the best single-disc collection of this underrated band's glory days, but The 60s is a fine budget-priced sampler that offers ten splendid examples of what made the Spoonful special. ~ Mark Deming
