Most of these acts were better the year before or after. Honorable mention to the Spoonful, who don't make it up to this exalted level, but had by far their best and most active year.
I love this place. I'm reading your thread and can even buy the "Anything else is madness," line, and then you cherrypick the Lovin' Spoonful out of that group as honorable mention. They're all pretty much honorable mention depending on personal taste.
Of course you have Coan's views, which throws it all outta whack.
