Spooky Tooth

Best remembered as the launching pad for Gary Wright, who was a founding member, and Foreigner's Mick Jones, who joined later, Spooky Tooth worked the fringes of the late '60s/early '70s Art-Rock scene and eventually included a significant portion of Joe Cocker's Grease Band. The '70 release "Ceremony" was as good as it got for Spooky Tooth and the group soon splintered despite growing popularity. Founding member, vocalist Mike Harrison, decided to press on with Chris Stainton, future Wings guitarist Henry McCullough and bassist Alan Spenner. All three had been in Cocker's backing group. This edition wrapped things up for the short term with the "Last Puff" album.

However, both Harrison and Wright, with their solo careers in the dumper, re-formed Spooky Tooth. The line-up included Jones. They produced the album with the classic title "You Broke My Heart So I Busted Your Jaw." Aside from that, there wasn't much. By '75 it was over again. This time for good.

Wright produced the "Dream Weaver" album with the title track and "Love Is Alive." Jones went on to mega-success with Foreigner.

Spooky Tooth Discography

"Ceremony," with contributions by electronic music's Pierre Henry, stands as Spooky Tooth's most interesting effort. The album that preceded it, "Spooky Two," is their most focused and cohesive work.
