The Lovin' Spoonful

Artist: The Lovin' Spoonful
LP: Daydream
Song: "Warm Baby"
[ listen ]
Song: "Jug Band Music" 
[ listen ]

Here's a big lovin' spoonful for ya directly from Seattle. Fill the spoon with whatever you want! I can't help but think that jug band music might well be the answer to curing the world of all its ills. Terrorism? Hateful murderous lunacy? Fanatical despotism? Institutionalized racism and discrimination? Apply a few bars of playful jug band music and get some rest; the symptoms should dissipate momentarily. 

Over the past few years The Lovin' Spoonful has emerged as my #1 favorite American pop band of the mid-to-late 1960s. They've got talent, an enviable wardrobe, a sort-of zip-a-dee-doo-dah/laissez-faire about them, and, rarest of all, they've got a sense of humor. You can read about The Lovin' Spoonful here and go here to visit their website. Best-ever LP liner notes are included below.
