‘Spooky’ from 1970 has been compiled occasionally. A hit for The Classics IV, it was a superb cover choice as was it’s A side, The Rascals ‘How Can I Be Sure’.

Originally recorded by Classics IV as a jazz fusion track, Springfield’s sultry soul take is what really brought this simple, elegant song its prominence. It was reintroduced to a modern audience through it’s heavy usage in the Guy Ritchie film Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels.
