An Early Clue to the New Direction: Special Violent Vulgar Things Which Offend Our Sensibilities Edition

From October 1966, please enjoy this utterly charming video clip of the Lovin Spoonful on tour in Toronto, including a reunion of Canadian ex-pat Spoonful guitarist Zal Yanovsky with his dad and a TV journalist pal from the old days.



Zally's one of my all time heroes, so it was nice to discover that, yes, he really was every the inch a rock star and a laugh riot as well. As I'd always hoped.

In any case, a coveted PowerPop No-Prize© will be awarded to the first reader who gleans the significance of the clip to tomorrow's all-new Weekend Listomania.
