(2011/EDSEL) 28 tracks

YOU'RE A BIG BOY NOW + EVERYTHING PLAYING
The Lovin' Spoonful were, by the close of 1966, a bona-fide US pop phenomenon. Despite the chart domination of The Beatles and The Rolling Stones and the rest of their 'British Invasion' compatriots, the Spoonful had managed to carve themselves a distinctive niche into the American singles and album charts, as well as the hearts and bedroom walls of thousands of Pop kids. The band's freewheeling, good-natured image didn't scare the horses. and they were the kind of combo that you didn't mind your girlfriend liking. They were John Sebastian (vocals, guitar, songwriter in chief), Zal Yanovsky (guitar, vocals), Joe Butler (drums, vocals) as well as being four individual and distinctive characters that lent themselves naturally to teen magazines, and Sebastian had proven himself to be a composer whose songs were eminently coverable, hook-laden, melodic and timelessly (and cross-generationally) appealing.

If you've acquired the other pairings of Lovin' Spoonful albums. also available on Edsel, you will have read how the Spoonful were informed by a vision shared by John Sebastian and guitarist Zal Yanovsky. This vision was of a band that could be an American G counterpart to the Beatles - rather than cop The Beatles moves, they sought to re-introduce the US to the roots and dusty backwaters of its indigenous musical heritage - Folk, Blues, Country, and even jug band music - good-timey stuff, but played with a pop emphasis and a contemporary feel. The fact that they managed to succeed from the get-go - with the deathless 1965 US smash hit debut single, Do You Believe In Magic - was vindication of Sebastian and Yanovsky's concept.

1966 was an epic year for the Lovin' Spoonful - releasing three albums (one, albeit, a hashed-together soundtrack affair), further hit singles including bona-fide classics in the shape of Daydream (which also gave them their breakthrough UK hit, as well as a place on none other John Lennon's home jukebox), Summer In The City and Nashville Cats, and a punishing schedule of touring, TV, radio, and the general hurly-burly of what it was to be a successful pop act in the 1960s. However, by the end of 1966, things were really starting to change in the USA. The counter-culture, in particular the growth of the anti-Vietnam war and hippy movements, were starting to fragment the more heavier, more drug-orientated experimentalism of Rock music from pop, which was singles-orientated, considered more lightweight and disposable in comparison. John Sebastian may have been a lot of things, but a militant he was not.

In some of his songs, such as Let The Boy Rock and Roll, he may have highlighted the generation gap, but he was always more inclusive, rather than hectoring or taking sides. Besides, the goofball side of the band -represented most clearly in the antics of guitarist Yanovsky - couldn't be repressed, but ultimately it just served to put the band into a pop pigeonhole, when their music was worthy of more.

By March of 1967, it was trot obvious that the Lovin! ' Spoonful had peaked as - commercial entity. Their record label, Kama Sutra. seemed to acknowledge this by releasing a 'Best Of' that reached a lofty number three in the Billboard album charts, and hanging around for a whole year, ultimately. The next recording of note was the first of this pairing of albums, the soundtrack to an early Francis Ford Coppola movie, "You're A Big Boy Now".

The film itself was a kind of rights-of-passage tale of a young man going to the Big City, trying to find love and growing up. Although essentially a mainstream movie, it anticipated the burgeoning counter-culture by highlighting the generational divide in America. The Spoonful provided the largely instrumental soundtrack, but contained within it was one utter Sebastian gem, Darling Be Home Soon. It's a fine, yearning piece of balladry that was not only a top twenty US singles chart hit, but also the final UK hit single for the...
