The Lovin' Spoonful - Daydream (1966)

The Lovin' Spoonful are an American rock band originally active in the 1960s.

"Do You Believe In Magic" had given The Lovin' Spoonful a massive hit in 1965, and they were quick to follow up with more. "You Didn't Have To Be So Nice" reached #10 in early 1966, followed by two which got to #2 - "Daydream" and "Did You Ever Have To Make Up Your Mind" (the latter had originally featured on their debut album). These singles secured their place as a hit-making pop group, not only in the US but also the UK (the last two singles getting to #2 and #3 on the UK charts).
Their second album came out in 1966, featuring both "Daydream" and "You Didn't Have To Be So Nice". It was a fine example of their upbeat blend of pop and jug band music. Whilst their debut album had featured covers of traditional folk songs, Daydream was notable for all the songs save one being written or co-written by frontman John Sebastian.

Sir, you are both a gentleman and a scholar. Your taste is music closely mirrors mine own. You have also introduced me to many new bands which are now referred as some of my favorites. I have never had any problems on your blog with any of the files except for Daydream by The Lovin' Spoonful. It simply says the file does not exist. Since I've never run into this issue before, I thought I should bring it to your attention. Please keep up the good work. You are changing peoples' lives. Cheers.
