Happy birthday to a great songwriter and the leader of The Lovin' Spoonful, a great band from the 1960's.
Later, John went solo and recorded "Welcome back Kotter", a # 1 song and theme music for the very popular TV show.
I think that I have my "Best of...." vinyl LP somewhere in a box.
"Darling be home soon" was one of my favorite songs. Happy birthday John!
