Spooky Tooth – Live in Europe

Nope, that’s not a typo. For the older readers, I’m sure I don’t need to explain who Spooky Tooth are. I’ll just have to explain what they’re doing here…

For the younger readers, Spooky Tooth were a sixties band, with strong Blues influences. They featured Gary Wright (later to rise to fame with Dream Weaver) and Luther Grosvenor (aka Ariel Bender).In 1968, they did several appearances for BBC Radio. Presented here are six of those tracks, including The Weight, written by Robbie Robertson and performed, at another time, by The Band.

Added to this album is Pretty Colours, Better By You Better Than Me and Soulful Lady from an obscure 1966 recording, called Deep Feeling.

Everything rounded up with a couple of tracks from the 1999 reunion, including World Party’s Sunshine.

A great look back into yesteryear with a band that made an impact on its time.
