Though it was released only a year after The Best of the Lovin' Spoonful, during which the group had made only one more new studio album, The Best of the Lovin' Spoonful, Volume Two was the equal of the first volume in quality. One reason for this was that the first volume had left off several later hits that could have been included -- "Rain on the Roof," "Nashville Cats," and "Darling Be Home Soon" were all saved for Volume Two. The Spoonful had scored several hits since the first volume, as well: "Six O'Clock," "She Is Still a Mystery," and "Money." When you add in excellent John Sebastian-composed album tracks like "Boredom" and "Younger Generation," you have a strong collection that matches the first volume, even as it expands The Spoonful's musical range. Unfortunately, this was the last new Spoonful album released with Sebastian as a band member.
