Dave Davies of the Kinks talks about The Lovin' Spoonful.

“The Byrds were a really big influence on me, personally, and The Lovin’ Spoonful, I think, had to be one of the most underrated bands that came out of America at that time,” he tells ABC Radio. He adds that he and his brother, Kinks frontman Ray Davies, “were listening to The Lovin’ Spoonful above and beyond The Beatles.”

Dave says what was significant about The Lovin’ Spoonful was they “started off that kind of integrating lots of different elements — blues, country and folk music and a bit of rock.” He explains that he also is drawn to the music of The Band for the same reason.
