Gergs, don’t bother cueing up those Spooky Tooth records in your basement. I thought we were forgetting some worthwhile song by them, but a brief YouTube search turned up extremely poor results.

First, they do the almost unthinkable: they fail to impress, even on an unintentionally humorous level, on a 1969 Beat Club appearance. How many excellent Beat Club videos have we seen through the years, and how often does a band fail to impress – in some way – in those well-shot B&W clips?

Then there’s the following monstrosity. I doubt they are responsible for the video, but this is as ponderous a cover as you’re likely to hear this side of Vanilla Fudge.

I think you’d be better off finally spinning those Mandrill albums you’ve been sitting on for years.
