Por información de Babelain, de este album que se lo levantaron en una fiesta psychodelica de los 70, y por interés mío también en tenerlo por ser una joya de finales de los 60 os presento el album de Spooky Tooth - The Last Puff (La Última Bocanada).
A new dawn broke in England in 1966-67 and it was a blues-rock dawn. Bands like Cream, Free, Ten Years After, The Rolling Stones and even Fleetwood Mac were blending their blues roots with the insistent beat of rock and gaining commercial success from it. and during the late 1960s, Spooky Tooth was one of a contingent of new British rock bands inspired by the first British Rock Invasion of acts like The Rolling Stones, The Yardbirds and The Animals.
Spooky Tooth took Europe and America by storm; alongside their Island Records label mates Traffic, Free and Jethtro Tull. From 1967 through 1974, they released seven Billboard-charting albums. After the band's demise, all of the members went on to careers as solo artists or members of other successful bands.
It's been 30 years since "It's All About", their first Stateside release on Bell Records (later reissued by A&M as "Tobacco Road"). For musicians who have not recorded together for many years, there were a number of obstacles to overcome. Each of the group members had created their own lives and coming together again presented somewhat of a challenge. Although the group wanted to honor some of their past material, they were also very conscious of writing contemporary new material which would reflect who they are now.
Part of the Spooky Tooth legacy is that they were always great at covering songs by then-unknown writers (Elton John, Robbie Robertson) and at recording songs by established writers and making them their own (Lennon/McCartney, Al Kooper, Bob Dylan) in the inimitable Spooky Tooth style.
El título del album podría significar muy bien el trabajo final de la banda antes de que sus miembros se marchasen a formar parte de bandas de gran éxito o llevar carreras en solitario.
Encontramos en especial la versión de I´m the Walrus de Los Beatles, en una gran interpretación. Incluso también encontramos una versión casi calcada de Son Of Your Father de Elton John.
El album marca la etapa final de una extraordinaria banda, y podria apreciarse muy bien en el significado de su título : el último hurrah o la última bocanada.
A 256 kbit y con covers completas.
