This collection of their albums contains all of their greatest songs. I have never understood how such a brilliant group have never achieved the status they deserve. Play these discs and dream away into a perpetual summer full of beautiful tunes and clever lyrics.

Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
The two soundtracks (What's up Tiger Lily, You're a big boy now) are omitted but everything else is here including all the hits. My favorite song of theirs is Lovin' you, which wasn't released as a single but opens the third album here, Hums. That is a particularly strong album containing several tracks that might have been released as singles, four of which were.

There are a lot of extra tracks here in the form of alternate takes or instrumental versions of songs that also appear within the five albums, plus a recording of Alley Oop, which doesn't. These extras are interesting if one is in the right mood, but I normally prefer just to play the tracks that made up the original albums, ending each CD prematurely. One track from the main albums that I'm not wildly keen on is War games, which lasts about 7 minutes and features a lot of gunfire. I assume it is inspired in some way by Vietnam. but I haven't figured out what it is really about yet.

The Lovin' Spoonful made some fantastic music, although most of the tracks that really matter can be found on hits compilations.

I'll preface this by saying I think the Lovin' Spoonful were a great band that made some magical music, both timeless and very evocative of its era. Now, with that out of the way...

So, you've already got a Lovin' Spoonful compilation and are wondering if this set is worth getting?

Hmmm.... not really.

While other groups at the time were inventing what became the album as a work in its own right, the Lovin' Spoonful proudly flew the flag for the older model - LPs made up of a few singles and filler.

But what if you don't have any Lovin' Spoonful? In that case this set is excellent value as it contains every proper album they ever made. They also did a couple of movie soundtracks - most of which aren't as good as what's on offer here. That's the good news. The bad news is one of the soundtrack songs is `Darling be home soon' - a track you'll want in your collection - and not here. To get it you'll have to buy a Lovin' Spoonful compilation. Which brings us back to where I started...

What about the bonus tracks? Nice to have but no undiscovered gems. In fact no new songs at all. There is a b side on the first album you rarely see - a cover of Alley Oop. No, I wasn't excited either. Other than a couple of interesting alternative mixes (not better mind you) there is nothing here of interest.

The albums themselves:

Do You Believe in Magic: The singles you already have plus some inoffensive covers you'll never remember playing.

Daydream: More original material than the first album. You've already heard the best but the others are OK. No better or worse than the covers on the first LP.

Hums of the Lovin' Spoonful: Probably their best album. It's certainly got the highest ratio of familiar songs on it.

Rated so high as it is very good and I like all the songs by John Sebastian, would recommend to anyone of my era (1960)
