Lovin' Spoonful

Nothing earth shattering but I just found the following interesting.
During an interview in 1966 Zal Zanofsky said that whenever the group performed "Summer In The City" in a live venue, drummer Joe Butler had to sing the vocals.  While Steve Boone played the organ John Sebastien took over the piano.  As Zal described it, "poor John" just could not concentrate on vocals and piano at the same time.

Re: Lovin' Spoonful

Interesting Johnny. I read that when they recorded that song they put the drums in a stair well to get a bigger echo. Anyone confirm this?
