V.A. - What's Shakin' (1966)

When the Lovin' Spoonful formed in 1965, Elektra staff producer Paul Rothschild bankrolled a demo session, but lost out to the newly-formed Kama Sutra Records in the ensuing bidding, largely because Elektra, then still strictly a folk label, couldn't break AM radio. Elektra kept the demos, and released them in 1966 as the centerpiece of the various-artists sampler WHAT'S SHAKIN'. The Spoonful's four tracks are a little more rough-edged and rock-oriented than the pop-folk singles that made them stars, with only the self-explanatory "Good Time Music" maintaining their characteristic sunny feel. The Paul Butterfield Blues Band contributes five stellar non-LP tracks and backs Al Kooper on a funky new version of the Blues Project's "Can't Keep From Crying Sometimes." For British blues fans, the otherwise unrecorded Powerhouse, starring Eric Clapton, Steve Winwood, and Jack Bruce, adds three of its own, including Clapton's first recording of his signature tune "Crossroads". Clapton's band is especially interesting....It's a treat to hear 'Crossroads' before Cream got hold of it. - cduniverse.com

Elektra (2005, Collector's Choice Music) released What’s Shakin’ in 1966 - a smoking, various-artists foretaste of breakthroughs to come. Ultra-rare tracks by the Lovin’ Spoonful rub shoulders with searing numbers by the Paul Butterfield Blues Band, Eric Clapton (wtih Steve Winwood), the Blues Project’s Al Kooper, and fabled Boston folkie Tom Rush.
