Editorial Reviews

When Greg Ridley, the bass player from Spooky Tooth (and Humble Pie), passed away in the spring of 2004, it was a sad day for Spooky Tooth and their fans. Before long, surviving members Gary Wright and Mike Harrison decided to reunite with drummer Mike Kellie—after 34 years--in Greg’s honor for a series of special concerts in Germany. The shows earned enthusiastic reviews , and fortunately were recorded for a possible live album and DVD.

I consider myself among the most ardent fans of Spooky Tooth, elevating their superb second album (`Spooky Two') to the top of my list of favorite rock albums of all time. Since first hearing that album in 1969, I acquired all of their albums as well as the solo work of various constituent members. To this day, I frequently play those CDs and never tire of them.

Like many other fans, I thought the prospect of hearing and seeing the original group (or most of them, anyway) perform live was highly unlikely (I was lucky enough to catch them in '74 on the `Witness' tour, though). When Gary Wright first mentioned on his website that the band had reformed and videotaped their 2004 German performances for future commercial release, it was a source of great anticipation. Well, the wait is over and the results are in.

I confess that I was unsure how these guys, apart for over 30 years, would look or sound. I feared they would simply be a lifeless, sad shadow of their former selves. Well, they've all aged well, looking thin and fit, and I'm happy to report that their music sounds better than ever. Containing ten songs recorded at two different venues (one outside during the afternoon, one inside a club), the focus is decidedly on their album `Spooky Two'. Starting out with that often imitated drum riff (Mike Kellie is truly a great drummer), Waitin' for the Wind kicks it off in fine form. With all the power of the original, the song grabs immediately and sets the stage for one fine concert experience. Gary Wright, clad in a red jumpsuit, was energized and smiling throughout. Mike Harrison, looking a bit more subdued, spent much of the time behind a Yamaha keyboard. Mike Kellie, thin as a rail, looked intense yet relaxed.

Like the previous reviewer, I too have been a long-time fan of Gary Wright and Spooky Tooth and have spent the last 25 years collecting their material on everything from 8-track, to cassettes, to albums, and CDs. Also, like the previous reviewer, I also wished there were more songs on this DVD, considering the extensive collection of songs from their collective discography. Having said that, I must say that it was just so awesome to see this band performing live on DVD. I felt like I was in a time warp, since there were no live video recordings of Spooky Tooth, just some Closet Classics videos from MTV. Except for the BBC Sessions CD, there were also no live audio recordings of the band available. That's why it is even more vital that I own a copy of this DVD. I purchased mine off the Gary Wright website so I could secure an autographed copy signed by Gary himself. The song selection on this DVD is still quite varied, even if it favors Spooky Two somewhat. They managed to arrange the order of the songs to mix up the time frame a bit by playing from Spooky Two, It's All About, Wright's solo material (as covered by Harrison on the Last Puff and revamped by Wright on Human Love). The version of The Wrong Time that Spooky Tooth played at this live concert was roughly the same version that appeared on Gary Wright's Human Love CD, with some funky clavinet sounds and an updated rhythm. The version of Wildfire on this DVD is also pretty much the same as the version that Wright revamped for Human Love, again updating the song to give it a 21st century feel. I wish that Mick Jones would have been available so they could have played more from Broke/Busted and Witness, but he is probably still out touring with Foreigner.Read more ›

Although Gary Wright made his mark in the states with Dream Weaver, he was a member of a band called Spooky Tooth which was popular in Europe and the UK. A reunion was planned but didn't happen until it became a tribute to their late bass player. The spliced concert footage from two dates shows the three of them with two session players recreating their most popular and personal favorites, largely from the Spooky Two album. All of them show their age but perform admirably. Bonus features-Mike Kellie and Mike Harrison reminisce in the studio. Gary Wright's interview is from XM satellite interview where he doesn't reminisce about the band as much. Additionally he has concert footage from a July 1976 date with his keyboard band. Quality is lacking with the 1976 recording. The 2004 video is sharp. People who are looking for Spooky Tooth may find this lopsided in favor of Wright, while Wright fans may enjoy the opportunity to see and hear what influenced the Dream Weaver in the early years.

I never understood why Spooky Tooth never received more acclaim that it did during it's hey-day. This video was a little disappointing in that I would have rather seen one entire concert from start to finish rather than what was more like a video version of a CD with fades to black between songs. On the other hand, the venue and the way it was filmed made it feel a little like you were listening to a local band playing at a local bar. That gave it a bit of a raw quality that is fitting with the band's music. It was good to see that Gary Wright and Mike Harrison could still handle the vocals so many years after the original recordings. I always thought Wright was better in Spooky than on his own and Harrison has a great blues voice (I know I may be the only one who appreciates his talent). I did find Wright's red outfit in one of the performances this was taken from to be a little weird and out of place with the rest of the band.
