1966 year also gave us two albums that many music critics have in their top 5 of all time...

that was the year that the lovin' spoonful were at the top of their game.

gandharva music was popping up all over...

lovin' spoonful of tunes

some of the catchiest, most creative, and positive tunes ever, were written by john john sebastiansebastian for his band, the lovin' spoonful, from 1965-70.
