Best of Sugarloaf

"The best of Sugarloaf would be the double CD "Sugarloaf/Spaceship Earth." This collection seems to favor their post-Liberty work, which was not as good to me. They seemed to be more pop-oriented, less rock. The best cuts are, of course, "Green-Eyed Lady," the long version (the single version was 3:33, by the way), and "Tongue In Cheek," a fantastic guitar tour-de-force (long version)with great lightning-speed organ solo. Too bad lead vocalist Jerry Corbetta went on to sing in a latter-day version of the Four Seasons."
Under-rated hippy band

"this is very good over-looked hippy music - the 1st track is the full length version & the 2nd tune (i had never heard of anything other than "green-eyed lady") was such a pleasant surprise - they were a pretty tight band
i suggest you buy the disc which complies their 1st and 2nd albums onto one disc ("sugarloaf" and "spaceship earth") - you'll find more hidden gems there (*and* the full length version of "green-eyed lady") that disc has 16 tracks and at *least* 9 really great songs - try it..
peace out - space puppy"
Kinda dumb group name!

"Yes indeed Kevin, the 6:50 "Green-Eyed Lady" is found here, although the hit version was pretty long in itself for a pop single, something like 5 1/2 minutes as I recall. Anyone who likes that song knows this band's sound & will like this. Early-to-mid'70s organ-dominated proggy stuff, less metallic than Deep Purple and Uriah Heep, less wanky than Yes or ELP. And don't forget their 2nd & last hit, the great "Don't Call Us, We'll Call You" complete with CBS's phone number spelled out touch-tone style!"
