LOVIN' SPOONFUL & Others: What's Shakin' 180g LP

(1966 'Elektra') Sundazed

Virtually every record label has tapes sitting in the vault that, for a variety of reasons, never see the light of day. This forbidden audio fruit frustrates fans and makes collectors salivate at the thought of what might be hidden away. Thus, stories circulate, rumors run amuck and legends swell with each passing year about these unreleased treasures. Fortunately, there are astute labels that do cull through their archives and release these gems to the public. Such is the case with the legendary compilation What's Shakin'.

In the musically explosive '60s, Elektra Records, like most of their contemporaries, was diligently searching for the 'next big thing.' Toward this pursuit, they often recorded demo sessions of promising artists, signing some and leaving others to find different label homes. In 1966, the label collected some of the best of these demos and compiled them for the What's Shakin' album. It contains the first four tracks recorded by the just-formed Lovin' Spoonful, who wound up creating a series of hit albums and singles for Kama Sutra. Notably, the album also contains two songs by Eric Clapton and the Powerhouse, recorded immediately prior to the formation of Cream. Rounding out the compilations are contributions from Al Kooper and Elektra labelmates Tom Rush and the Paul Butterfield Blues Band.

News of the album's release spread quickly, making it a big hit on the nascent underground music scene. Sundazed is proud to make these ultra-rare tracks available again for today's music enthusiasts. Sourced from the original analog master tapes, pressed on high-definition vinyl and packaged with original liner notes and photo inserts, this album belongs in the collections of discerning music fans everywhere.

Artist description "Lovin' Spoonful, The"

The Lovin' Spoonful

1965 in New York von Sänger und Gitarrist John Sebastin (geboren 17.3.1944 in New York) und Sologitarrist Zalman Yanovsky (geboren 19.12.1944 in Toronto - Kanada) gegründete Folk-Rockband. Ihre sanften und melodiösen Songs fanden sofort Gefallen, bildeten Lovin' Spoonful doch einen herrlichen Kontrast zu den damals den Markt beherrschenden englischen Gruppen wie Hollies, Kinks, Beatles, Stones, Animals und Manfred Mann. Mitspieler waren der Schlagzeuger Joe Butler (geboren 16. 9.1943 in New York) und der Bassist Steve Boone (geboren 23.9.1943 in Camp Lejeune - North Carolina).

Lovin' Spoonful waren die erste Gruppe der Welt, die Folkmusik auf elektrisch verstärkten lnstrumenten spielte, beeinflußten die Byrds und andere heute populäre Bands wie Eagles, America und Poco. Gleich ihre ersten Platten „Daydream' und „Summer in the City' wurden 1966 Welthits, die Lovin' Spoonful auch in Deutschland berühmt machten. Nachfolgetreffer wurden „You didn't have to be so nice', „Nashville Cats' und „Darlin' be home soon'.

1967 verließ Yanovsky die Gruppe, für ihn kam Jerry Yester (geboren 9.1.1945 in Joshua Tree - Kalifornien). 1 Jahr später trennte sich die Gruppe. John B. Sebastian versuchte im Alleingang eine Solokarriere als Folksänger, war damit aber nur in den USA erfolgreich. Anfang 1975 versuchte er, seine alten Freunde wieder zusammenzutrommeln, um als Lovin' Spoonful eine neue LP aufzunehmen und wieder Konzerte zu geben. Aber bis zum Herbst blieb es bei den Plänen ohne konkretes Ziel.

The Lovin' Spoonful drew on a deep pooled knowledge of rural music, specifically rural African American music from the 1920s and '30s. Their name came from Mississippi John Hurt's Coffee Blues ("I wanna see my baby 'bout a lovin' spoonful"). Leader John Sebastian had spent a few months in the Mugwumps, a group that comprised Cass Elliott and Denny Doherty (later of the Mamas & Papas) and guitarist Zal Yanovsky, who joined him in the Spoonful. Producer Erik Jacobsen had already made his mark with Tim Hardin, and worked with Sebastian and Yanovsky to shape the Spoonful's sound. Drummer Joe Butler and bassist Steve Boone rounded out the group.

The Spoonful were unapologetically commercial, but so personable and accomplished that only the most curmudgeonly could fail to love them. Jacobsen placed the group with Kama-Sutra Records, a label that appeared to be the quintessential hippie era start-up, but wasn't. Two of the three principals, Artie Ripp and Phil Steinberg, came out of the rabidly commercial Brill Building, while the third, Hy Mizrahi, had sold jewelry and cameras in Manhattan. They began producing for Red Bird Records before that label's sudden mob-precipitated demise. Kama-Sutra Records was launched in June 1965. The first single, the Spoonful's Do You Believe In Magic, reached the pop Top 10. Sebastian pulled off the enviable trick of being eclectic and radio-friendly. "We thought we had an advantage over other rock 'n' roll bands because we played with thumb picks," he told 'Crawdaddy' magazine. Nashville Cats, an affectionate homage to the elegant simplicity of the Nashville session musicians, was the Spoonful's seventh single and reached #8 on the pop charts.

In January 1967, Kama-Sutra serviced the song to country radio without much in the way of results, and issued an EP with liner notes by Buck Owens. It was a first, tentative step toward bridging rock and country. Purists took issue with a factual error. "Yellow Sun records" came from Memphis, not Nashville, although within a couple of years Shelby Singleton would buy Sun and flood the market with yellow Sun records from Nashville. Sebastian said that the lead guitar was played by Yanovsky while he filled in on a steel guitar that had been left in the studio from another artist's session. That sounds about right.
