Description
Led by Elaine "Spanky" McFarlane, this 1960s folk–pop group was akin to the Mamas and the Papas in their sophisticated arrangements and lush harmonies. This 21-track retrospective includes every A and B side the band released on Mercury during their spectacular 1966–69 stint with the label. Their sound remains timeless on major chart hits like "Sunday Will Never Be the Same," "Lazy Day," and "Like to Get to Know You"; their eclectic repertoire also includes "And Your Bird Can Sing," "Sealed With a Kiss," "Everybody's Talkin'," "Mecca Flat Blues," "Yesterday's Rain," and "Three Ways from Tomorrow." The liner notes feature fresh interviews with McFarlane, producers Jerry Ross and Bob Dorough, and arranger Jimmy Wisner.

"To hear Spanky's dreamy contralto floating over the harmonies of '60s pop classics like 'Like to Get to Know You' and 'Lazy Day' is to hear the essence of a musical era."—The Pantagraph, Bloomington, IL

"The songs were characterized by … the fabulous blend of four- and five-part harmonies, and an infectious feeling of good times and free love. Indeed, the made-for-the-times lyrics 'Blue sky, sunshine / What a day for takin' a walk in the park' fell not far from those of 'Good Day Sunshine' and 'The 59th Street Bridge Song'. But regardless of the material … the silky texture of their harmonic power is always present."—Sensible Sound
