Spooky Tooth - The Last Puff (1970)
Spooky Tooth was undergoing a transition when the band recorded ‘The Last Puff’, a fine album first released on the Island label in 1970 and produced by Chris Blackwell. One of the earliest ‘heavy’ bands famed for their soulful gospel sound and solid beat, they had leapt to fame with the release of their first two critically acclaimed albums. After two years of heavy touring they underwent some personnel changes. Keyboard player Gary Wright and bassist Greg Ridley left, and this set was recorded by the remaining members with help from members of The Grease Band. Some critics want to slag this off as a "contractual obligation album" or "a Mike Harrison solo album", and actually topping Spooky Two would have been almost impossible - but this is actually a very good effort from Spooky Tooth. Among the seven tracks are stirring versions of the Beatles’ classic ‘I Am the Walrus’ and Elton John’s ‘Son Of Your Father’. Four bonus tracks are added to the original album, and feature a selection of single versions.

1. I Am the Walrus
2. Wrong Time
3. Something to Say
4. Nobody There at All
5. Down River
6. Son of Your Father
7. Last Puff
8. Son of Your Father (Mono Single Version)
9. I've Got Enough Heartache (Mono Single Version)
10. I Am the Walrus (Mono Single Version)
11. Hangman Hang My Shell on a Tree (Mono Single Version)

Mike Harrison - Vocals, Keyboards
Mike Kellie - Drums
Henry McCullough - Guitar
