I love Spooky Tooth. I always did. I just cannot understand why you never hear them on Classic Rock Stations. Sure, you hear the common ones like Black Sabbath, Queen, The Who, Cream and many others, but at least where I live at many of the Classic Rock Stations play all great and memorable Songs and Bands. I never really hear these guys much. Evil Woman will get played from time to time now that I think about it. Still why not some of the other amazing tracks by them? None-The-Less, Spooky Tooth remains an underrated Band!
Great band. Hangman Hang My Shell On A Tree could possible have thee best rhythm used in rock'n'roll song. They're brilliant, when I think of that immortal timeless rock'n'roll sound, I think of Spooky Tooth.
Canned Heat's version is most fameous cover. But there are others. Search Youtube for Quiet Riot or Yesterday's Children covers.
Btw, there are other fameous songs called Evil Woman, but not related to this one: ELO (and covers), Crow and Black Sabath's cover, etc...
Question, the song Evil Woman from the Spooky Two album, is that a cover or did someone else cover it? I know I've heard it before but I can't place it and I just discovered Spooky Tooth a week or so ago. Thanks.
My father introduced me to Spooky Tooth, some time ago now, and I have to say I really like them. Listen out for some older songs (such as "Supernatural Fairytales" -- you can find that on the Island Anthology) by "Art" -- they essentially were Spooky Tooth before they changed their name.
