As the title suggests this is a real Best Of and not a Greatest Hits album. Although there are five successful singles on the album ("Do You Believe in Magic", "You Didn't Have To Be So Nice", "Daydream", "Did You Ever Have To Make Up Your Mind?" and "Summer In The City"), the seven other tracks emphasize the band's assets as a whole and not only John Sebastian's song writing and singing abilities. These seven tracks might not have been big hits, but these tracks are surely the group's strongest material, picked from the first three albums Do You Believe In Magic, Daydream, and Hums Of The Lovin' Spoonful.
Music On Vinyl releases Best Of The Lovin' Spoonful as only Music On Vinyl does best: on heavy weight vinyl, in a beautiful gatefold sleeve and with the original full colour photo postcards.
