1. Knew them when they were just starting out

Very sad when Zal passed. He always had a smile, and something funny to say. RIP, Zalman.

4. Loved Zal Yanofsky, and I say that as a Detroiter

I grew up in Detroit during the era of Motown and the Beatles (the '60s - how lucky was I?), but also loved the Spoonful, especially Summer in the City - one of the greatest songs of all time, along with its peers, Dead End Street by Lou Rawls and Hot Fun in the Summertime by Sly and the Family Stone.

Of course, no one beat this:

3. I love wallowing in nostalgia:)

But then I have more years behind me than I do ahead of me.

'60's music just has a way of taking me back to that time of my life when anything seemed possible.

5. We took several Spoonful CDs on a roadtrip to California ...

...over the holidays. Had them playing for the trip from the Sunset in SF down 280 to Campbell. I can still get the lyrics to all the songs correct about 95% of the time.

But what's with the Hullabaloo set?? The fake jalopy and the road signs (Stop, Slow, Dead End, Hill - Shift Gears)?? The two (Flower Child x Biker Chick)s certainly didn't appear to believe in magic. Thought they might be stuffed until one of them twitched. Did the Spoonful play because Steppenwolf didn't show up?

6. That set was RANDOM. The boys are having WAY more fun than the girls. They're almost

mannequins. And how unlikely- it would be these days- to have an autoharp in a pop group?!?

Thanks for the trip back in time.

Summer in the City still a favorite from them.
