Buying the albums sampled on “You Can All Join In”.
More today from Chris Welch’s notes in the CD insert:
“Spooky Tooth was in a relatively unusual position when they set about recording their debut under their new name. Recently signed to Chris Blackwell’s pioneering “indie” label Island Records, most of the members had been together in other groups. Although still in their twenties, the musicians were “long in tooth”, to coin a phrase. Yet they had a new name and a young American recruit, not long arrived in London. He was singer, keyboard player and composer Gary Wright. they also had an American producer Jimmy Miller, who brought songwriting skills as well as an innate feel for good studio “vibes”. And so a happy band of talents and influences, experience and enthusiasm resulted in the 1968 album that launched Spooky Tooth on the road to rock success.
We continue these splendid notes next time.
