THE LOVIN' SPOONFUL Summer In The City KAMA SUTRA 45
THE LOVIN’ SPOONFUL
Summer In The City b/w Butchie’s Tune
Kama Sutra #KA 211 Released 1966
How could this NOT have been a #1 hit in the summer of ’66? Great, great, great. The lyrics, the odd chord changes, the sound effects!!! Put a drill on it, baby, you got yourself a smash! The music explodes like a fire hydrant cooling off the neighborhood kids on a hot street in the summer, in the city.
The flip side is a country tinged Bob Dylan style toe-tapper that sounds like you’ve heard it before (reminds me of Elton’s “Texan Love Song” from years later) but the point is that ANY song is a b-side with an a-side like this one.
