iTunes Editors’ Notes

Spooky Tooth is often dismissed by music critics as nothing more than a Brit rock springboard — the band’s members went on to join Mott the Hoople, Stealers Wheel, Humble Pie, Joe Cocker’s Grease Band, Matthews Southern Comfort, Foreigner, and in 1976 singer Gary Wright had a hit with “Dream Weaver.” But this thoroughly enjoyable collection proves that they were an outstanding band in their own right, rooted in blues, prog and psychedelic rock ‘n’ roll. A mystical glockenspiel opens “Sunshine Help Me” before heavy guitars and a grinding organ come in like a close cousin of Deep Purple. Their weighty take on J.D. Loudermilk’s “Tobacco Road” sounds like late ‘60s Japanese psyche outfit Flower Travelin’ Band, and not even Vanilla Fudge could have made this cover of Crow’s “Evil Woman” more mind meltingly tripped-out. Even their sludgy rendition of The Beatles’ “I Am The Walrus” sounds like something that early Black Sabbath would have loved. Of course their own tunes, like the harmonious title-track and “Better by You, Better Than Me,” are even more hypnotic.

Customer Reviews

GREAT CLASSIC ROCK!

Why is this band not better known in the history of rock n' roll? This is a great album! It is loaded with cathcy hooks. I reccomend this album to everyone that likes classic rock. There is not a slow point on this album. Some of the stand-out tracks include the nine minute masterpiece, "Evil Woman", "Waitin' for the Wind", "Feelin' Bad", "Better by You, Better by Me" and "The Wrong Time". Another track worth paying attention to is the cover of "I Am the Walrus". Overall this is a great album and I reccomend it to anyone looking for a great listen.

Best Of Spooky Tooth

This band was by far the greatest studio and live band I've ever had the pleasure of hearing. Saw their last American concert at William Paterson College, NJ in 69. Mike Harrison(vocals, keyboard) and Luther Grosvenor (vocals,guitar) are timeless. (Trivia note: Luther was the guitarist Aerial Bender in Mott The Hoople). The stuff holds up today. Never sounds dated. Checkout Luther's solo albums, as well as Mikes. Gary Wright, the only American in the band, went on to pop history with "Dream Weaver", but it really is the Brits that are the heart and soul of this band. "Walrus" is without question the best cover of a Beatles tune. It took balls to do it and the boys pulled it off. Amazing guitar work. Nice to know they're still out there and getting it done. Long live Spooky Tooth!

BEST COVER EVER!

All I have to say about this album is that Spooky Tooth's cover of "I am the Walrus" is absolutely amazing. This is not to say that their original stuff is not good as well, in fact, it is excellent. But if anything, check out this cover. It is just riveting.
