Editorial Reviews

Welcome to the Playlist series. Painstakingly compiled by the artists and the music nuts at Legacy Recordings, these collections truly represent an artists' complete body of work. We've fished through hundreds-thousands-of tracks to cherry pick the perfect playlists. Not just the hits (anyone can find those). The life changing cuts. The out-of-print tracks. The fan favorites everyone loves. The songs that make the artist who they are.

You’ll no doubt enjoy the sound of the beautifully remastered songs on this CD (as opposed to MP3's that contain less information, which translate into compromised sound). But we think the thing you'll appreciate most about this Playlist is that even though you didn't make it, you might wish you did.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Sound Choice February 20, 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Fans of the music of the 1960s who are looking for a handy compilation of the music of the charming, albeit short-lived (long 'i'), group The Lovin' Spoonful need look no further than this offering from BMG Music. This CD covers the John Sebastian hits from 1965 - 1968, with a few album tracks and a bit of non-Sebastian material.

The main advantage of this 2008 release over other Spoonful compilations is the sound quality. Much of the original Spoonful production was as harsh-sounding as Motown, presumably to project from AM car radios of the era. This release cleans up the sound considerably. Darling Be Home Soon, one of Sebastian's finest achievements, has until this production sounded like it was a remote recording transmitted from the Moon. Now the beauty of the music really shines.

Four stars? There could have been more music: Younger Girl and Jug Band Music are inexplicably missing.

A fan can even overlook the flimsy "eco-friendly" packaging and the dull front artwork.

Comes with computer-accessed liner notes, booklet, etc. Let me know how they are (I can't bring 'em up on my Mac).

Buy it and be groovy.

5.0 out of 5 stars What a day for a daydream March 5, 2009
Format:Audio CD
According to the liner notes printed in the enhanced portion of this album, the sound of The Lovin' Spoonful had been described as "good time music". Songs like "Do You Believe In Magic" and "Daydream" certainly fit that description perfectly.

Spanning 1965 through 1968, this great collection features seven Top Ten hits including "You Didn't Have To Be So Nice", the country flavored "Nashville Cats" and their only chart topper "Summer In The City". There are also four album cuts: "Blues In The Bottle", "Warm Baby", "Let The Boy Rock and Roll" and the mellow "Coconut Grove".

New and old fans alike will enjoy this collection. Good time music indeed.

4.0 out of 5 stars fully remastered would be ideal March 9, 2014
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
Fantastic collection of their hits and lesser-knowns. It is odd though that half the album is remastered while half is not. Still well worth the money

5.0 out of 5 stars I was looking for some old music. March 6, 2014

Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I have a older BMW with USB in the new music system. Having been adding music to the USB flash drive to listen to while cruising. This fit the bill. Got what I wanted when I wanted it. No Problems.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love AM music June 29, 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I remember most of these tunes very well. Cruising in my 56 Chevy Impala with the Delco AM radio blasting, life was good then, still is. Good remastering on this but I think some tunes are atypically flat but what the heck, it's AM music.
