The Lovin' Spoonful: Night Owl Blues

Ultra busy yesterday, so I passed on the TV Thursday theme, but I am back with Friday’s Flipside. Today’s selection is the “B” side to The Lovin’ Spoonful’s 1966 hit “Daydream.” “Night Owl Blues” is a little instrumental that features the harmonic of John Sebastian and the guitar work of Zal Yanovsky.

The “A” side peaked at #2 on the Hot 100; however, the flip side did not contribute to the success of the single. While “Daydream” was the title cut from the album of the same name, “Night Owl Blues” was not released on an album until 2002 when it appeared as one of five bonus tracks on the “Daydream” CD.
