Spanky & Our Gang

Terrific Folk/Rock band of the Sixties, whose vocals shared a lot in common with groups like the Mamas and the Papas, but still had a distinctive style of their own. They had a lot of hits, like "Sunday Will Never Be The Same" and "Lazy Day", but my favorite is the one featured in this video "I'd Like To Get To Know You". A very haunting song which like many songs after "Sgt. Pepper" added an abrupt change in time signature and tempo towards the end. In some songs, it didn't work(e.g. Susan by the Buckinghams), but in this song it blends well.
