4 Eyes - The Lovin Spoonful - Hums Of The Lovin Spoonful (Vinyl, LP, Album)

25.09.2021

Hudson sneaks in low with a musical army crawl, spreading a wash of unique sound with Helm popping off rim shots. Robertson, in his infancy as a player, cuts deep with distorted slices and jabs distilled through the sheet of sound. Manuel rattles along underneath and soon links up with Danko as the sonic haze gains some clarity.

The sound improvement is in addition my ears becoming accustomed to the recording. The 'Hawks' increase the tension with Robertson hitting on a circular lick and Helm riding the train right next to him. Hawkins screams and the band opens the tap. The tension is thick, palm mutes, and rock and roll screams grind the 'Who Do You Love' jam to a thrilling and sexy conclusion. There is alot of cool dialog and audio verite gold that I will leave you my dear reader to discern on your own.

That's the fun! Manuel croons 'Share Your Love', getting the little girls to giggle and swoon. LP focusing in and picking through the sonic debris of the tape I can hear Robertson picking watery filigrees and Helm' shuffling the beat.

This is priceless. At the conclusion of 'Share Your Love', there is a bit of fantastic dialog between the 'Hawk' and the females in the crowd. Hawk asks the ladies yelling for Levon to 'show him what you want'. Hawk tells the fans to 'not be bashful now' and tell Levon what they want him to sing. Hawk then mentions, 'We got the horns here now so we'll let 'Beak' sing one more then we'll let Levon. This is where it's at. Admittedly, the 4 Eyes - The Lovin Spoonful - Hums Of The Lovin Spoonful (Vinyl room' does not know the author of this cut, but I can confirm that Manuel makes it his own.

This is swinging R and B at it's finest and the 'Hawks' are as tight as a bank vault. James spencer likes this. Dandelion and James spencer like this. Location: KC. Rivaled the Beatles for variety. And for a short while had an amazing chart run here in the US. Sebastian is like McCartney to me in that there's no real tortured artist bit going on, just some fine music making.

This is swinging R and B at it's finest and the 'Hawks' are as tight as a bank vault. After a double snare hit by Helm, 4 Eyes - The Lovin Spoonful - Hums Of The Lovin Spoonful (Vinyl 'Hawks' jump into the pocket. There is some hi distortion on the tape but Manuel comes in loud and clear. Helm swings with his ride cymbal and the horns bleat out well placed punctuations. Manuel's vocals rattle the light fixtures as he plainly illustrates why he was the lead vocalist for the 'Hawks'.

I'm pretty sure its Garth Hudson and Penfound on horns. Oooooooh, lord this is the stuff. Take note that right at first sax break Manuel lays down a beautiful descending line on the piano and then hits boogie-woogie just in time for the first sax solo. It's sounds to these ears that Garth takes the first solo spot but this a total guess on my part. Dig on the song's conclusion when the 'Band' drops out and Richard really gets into it with Helm nailing the beat to the floor.

Highlight reel stuff even with the questionable audio at points.
