Baby Boomer Fun: The Lovin' Spoonful 1965 - 1967

07/26/07
Thursday is Baby Boomer Day here, no real estate, so here we go...

The Lovin' Spoonful, (and 45 other acts), will be appearing in Asheville this weekend as part of the three day Bele Chere Festival. The Spoonful from that time has remained one of my favorite bands. These guys made a big run from 1965 - 1967 with such hits as:

Do You Believe in Magic?, You Didn't Have to be So Nice, Daydream, Did You Ever Have to Make Up Your Mind, Summer in the City, Rain on the Roof, Nashville Cats, Darlin' be Home Soon, She's Still a Mystery to Me, and Six O'Clock.

Spoonful on Wikipedia

From ClassicBands.com: Note the connection with The Mamas and the Papas.

Top Movies of 1965: Notable, Lee Marvin, Oscar for Best Actor in "Cat Ballou". The trivia is that he played two roles in the film, so is the only actor to win with the distinction of multiple roles in one Oscar.

The video below is a performance of "You Didn't Have to be So Nice", which peaked at # 10 in 1965.

PLEASE NOTE: Videos do disappear from the web from time to time. If this video should become unavailable, then find more Lovin' Spoonful performances at his location.
