Lovin Spoonful: Rain on the Roof

September 14, 2007

This was one of my favorite Lovin’ Spoonful songs. A peculiar stylistic mixture: a classical head, a country bridge, and it ends on an unresolved dominant 7th chord. Who knew that John Sebastian played the harp, I mean a REAL harp? I don’t understand why this group hasn’t fared as well in the oldies department. They were a terrific group.
