THE LOVIN’ SPOONFUL
The Hums of the Lovin’ Spoonful (1966)
One of the grooviest bands of the Greenwich Village scene in New York in the Sixties. The music is both deeply rooted in North-American traditions of folk music and bluegrass, and deeply contemporary – they sound like a band who could only be born out of Bob Dylan going electric to jam with The Band. White-boy soul and vocal harmonies whose beauty rivals with The Beach Boys or Neil Young are other attractions of The Lovin’ Spoonful sound. So here’s the band 3rd studio album for the enjoyment of any of you interested in undigging the buried treasures of American music:
