Sundazed: Lovin' Spoonful's 2nd LP on 180 gram GOLD VINYL…
…but you better hurry up. Sundazed is only pressing up 100 copies and it is only available for purchase through their website’s online store. I ordered mine at 6:00AM this morning (yawn.)
The Lovin’ Spoonful~”Daydream” on 180 gram CLEAR GOLD VINYL.
This album was originally released in March 1966 on the Kama Sutra label. Kama Sutra, at this stage of the game (like Verve/Forecast Jazz) was distributed by MGM Records. In 1969, Kama Sutra was bought out by Buddah Records which was part of the GRT Corporation. Buddah continued to issue Spoonful LP’s on the Kama Sutra label, albeit, with the a new ‘pink’ label replacing the yellow one. Anyways, this LP followed “Do You Believe In Magic” (November 1965), and preceeded their best studio album “Hums Of The Lovin’ Spoonful” (December 1966.)
No sophomore slump here, by golly. The “Daydream” LP is actually the highest charting of their original studio albums, coming in at #10 Pop. This version comes with an awesome gatefold cover featuring new liner notes and unreleased photos. If this isn’t enough, you get 4 bonus tracks to boot. There are 6 notable killer tracks on this record. They are:
1) Daydream (#2 Pop)
2) You Didn’t Have To Be So Nice (Zal on his Guild Thunderbird with his best opening riff ever)
3) Didn’t Want To Have To Do It
4) Jug Band Music
5) Butchie’s Tune (magnificently sung by drummer Joe Butler)
6) Bald Headed Lena (rip-rockin’ guitared and sung by Zal Yanovsky)
Here at vinyl.com, we still have 3 copies of The Lovin’ Spoonful’s “Hums Of The Lovin’ Spoonful” on a killer MARBLED YELLOW & WHITE ACID TRIP COLORED VINYL. It is in true stereo also with 4 bonus tracks and the gatefold cover.
(Ed. Note: “Hums Of The Lovin’ Spoonful” is actually more recommended than the “Daydream” LP. How in tarnation that this title didn’t sell out worldwide like Sundazed’s colored vinyl pressings of Jefferson Airplane, The 13th Floor Elevators, and The Johnny Cash Sun Singles Collection is a mystery to me)
Anyways, Sundazed has the rights to the first 3 Lovin’ Spoonful albums…let’s hope they release “Do You Believe In Magic” on a limited run of colored vinyl soon too? All of the Sundazed pressings use the original yellow Kama Sutra labels.
