custom red label.

original gatefold cover, with original Mercury inner sleeve.

Inside The Groove

Their nice album ever, including the great tune "Like To Get To Know You".

Personal Impression (and brief notes)

For me (and many other "Spanky" fans), it is sure enough to have this album, only because a famous psychedelic-flavoured colourful single "Like To Get To Know You" is on the record. The song is such awesome psyche-popper (of course, this song is much better in "single version" arrangement). Another smash hit "Sunday Mornin'" is also great.

Other songs are nice, some of them are jazzy, others are "good-old-days" like harmonic tunes, even pretty but funny songs.

Strictly Personal Rating (to what extent I could enjoy this album)

8 out of 10
