One of the Best Sounds of the Sixties
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I first heard Spanky and Our Gang as a very young child. My teenage brother graciously let me tag along with him wherever he went, and usually there was a radio nearby, so I heard a LOT of popular music from the era. In 1967-68, Spanky and Our Gang were all over the airwaves, and I guess they left an indelible impression on me, because to this day their sound is my favorite -- an ethereal blend of voices, horns, strings, poetic lyrics, and a folk-rock beat, all dreamy harmonies and overtones. As with every outstanding band, Spanky and Our Gang's sound was more than the sum of its parts, and this elusive quality shines through in all their songs. (They sound like The Mamas and Papas with lusher arrangements.)"Spanky's Greatest Hits" preserves this sound, keeping it alive for a new generation. From the complex "Like to Get to Know You" to the sad "Sunday Will Never Be the Same," this CD indeed captures the best of Spanky and Our Gang. Sadly, their lesser-known songs never play on oldies radio stations; this greatest hits CD is a great way to hear such "forgotten" gems as "Three Ways from Tommorrow" once again."

"I fell in love with Spanky back in 9th grade. They were (and are) my favorite group from that era. I didn't know until I bought the album (I own it on vinyl and CD that my favorite tune, "I'd Like To Get To Know You" was actually longer than the part they always played on the radio!The CD is one hit after another, each evoking fond memories of a time gone by."
Wonderful recordings make their way from vinyl to CD!

"While my original Spanky's GH LP is grey from the thousands of plays it's sufferred through, it's great to have these recordings available once again -- this time in the digital domain. This CD mirrors the original LP release with a couple of minor exceptions. On "Lazy Day" the panned-stereo sound of 'children saying hello' is missing. Also, the mix of "Give A Damn" - if I'm not mistaken - is missing the giant guitar strum on the front of it. These minor differences shouldn't stop anyone from considering the purchase of this CD. A more complete anthology exist only on the Rhino record label as a vinyl LP. Spanky is married to a member of The Turtles road crew, and the picture on the cover of the CD is of her with their son, (I believe) Matthew, circa 1969."
