Spooky by Classics IV

spooky classics iv remix


  • This song was originally an instrumental by the saxophone player Mike Shapiro, who recorded it as Mike Sharpe. J.R. Cobb, who was the band's lead guitarist, heard this song and added lyrics to it with their producer Buddy Buie. Cobb later formed the Atlanta Rhythm Section along with fellow band member Dean Daughtry and members of a band called The Candymen.
  • There's been some controversy over who played the sax solo on this song, as different people have claimed to have played it. According to Classics IV's biographer Joe Glickman, it was Mike Shapiro, who wrote and recorded the original instrumental version of the song, who played the sax. Glickman wrote in the Forgotten Hits newsletter: The reason he didn't play on some of the other records (the ones Ray Jarrel played on) was because Mike was a bit hard to work with in the studio. He had a very good concept of how he wanted the solos, which differed from Buddy Buie's ideas of mainstream pop. There's a bit of a tone-break at the end of the solo that Mike insisted on re-recording, but Buddy wouldn't let him. English White was a sax player that was brought in later during the 'Traces' road tour to fill in for the sax. Mike did not tour at all and the band had been playing for a while with Auburn Burrell filling in the sax solos on lead guitar. That was hurting their reception since the sax had a lot to do with their sound."
  • In 1979, the Atlanta Rhythm Section released a new version that hit #48 in the UK and #17 in the US. Their version doesn't differ greatly from the original, which makes sense as three of this group's members (Robert Nix, James Cobb and Dean Daughtry) played with Classics IV before joining this group. >> Suggestion credit : Mike - Santa Barbara, CA
  • This was one of the first songs to get a lot of airplay on the Album Oriented Rock (AOR) format. FM was relatively new, and AOR was a great format for people who wanted to hear songs on rock albums that weren't necessarily hits.
  • Other artists to record this song include Dusty Springfield, The Velvet Monkeys and Daniel Ash. Imogen Heap also recorded it for the soundtrack of the movie Just Like Heaven .

  • Mrs. Linda (dennis) Yost from Cincinnati,ohio After Dennis’ accident Tom Garrett was hired to work with Dennis to be a replacement or co lead vocal for some live performances due to health issues .They hired Garard Montague (Bart) until he had back issues and could not travel. Paul Wesleyan was hired and has been touring with Tom the last 3 years on successful The Happy Together Tour. And the entire band is now happily doing live shows after the pandemic!
  • Funkifized from Lowell, Ma The interesting thing about this band is that all the hits had prominent saxophone solos on them, but there seems to have not been a sax player in the band. I disagree that there was little difference between the Atlanta Rhythm Section's version of "Spooky" and the Classics IV version. The rhythm pattern was the same, but it was much more rockin' guitars. I liked the updated version better for a short time and eventually found the Classics IV take to be much more listenable.
  • Joanne from Ct I could transport myself in 1968 to an 8th grade grammar school dance like it was yesterday. This song is “ groovy”
  • Barry from Sauquoit, Ny Buddy Buie died July 18th, 2015 after suffering a heart attack in Eufaula, Alabama. May he R.I.P.
  • Barry from Sauquoit, Ny On December 17th 1967 "Spooky" by the Classics IV entered Billboard's Hot Top 100 chart; and on February 4th, 1968 it peaked at #3 (for 3 weeks) and spent 15 weeks on the Top 100... The quartet had a total of three Top 10 hits; and all three had 'one word' titles, the other two were "Stormy" (#5 in 1968) and "Traces" (#2 for 1 week in 1969)... Sadly, lead singer Dennis Yost passed away on December 7th, 2008 at the age of 65... May he R.I.P.
  • Howard from Levittown, Pa "Just like a ghost you keep on haunting my dreams/so I'll propose on Halloween." One of the cleverest lines ever. Cobb's guitar style didn't change between Classics IV and ARS; the texture seemed different in the mix though. I wonder sometimes if Classics IV opened up a niche for sax in pop/rock("Year of the Cat," "The One You Love" "Fool If You Think It's Over" etc.).
  • Edward from Henderson, Nv Another song about a girl with unpredictable mood swings: Billy Joel"s "She's Always a Woman."
  • Leah from Brooklyn, Ny In concept, this song about a boyfriend/girlfriend who has creepy mood swings and personality changes is first cousin to Katy Perry's recent tune "Hot N Cold."
  • Dave from Easton, Pa Wasn't the vocalist on theses Classics IV songs Dennis Yost? I have the single "Traces" and it's listed as "The Classics IV Featuring Dennis Yost." His smooth vocals go well with the Classics IV sound. I loved ARS, too.
  • Vic from Knoxville, Tn I love those descending triplets in the 2nd guitar solo
  • Bri from Orange, Ca A cover was don by dusty springfeld
  • Mike from Santa Barbara, Ca I've wondered what or who this song was about. It sounds like it could be about Morticia Addams from The Addams Family.
  • Ekristheh from Halath, United States Cute'n'clever, one of my all times.
  • Rick from San Juan, United States In one of the early episodes of HBO's "Six Feet Under", Spooky was played in one eerie scene where Nate (Peter Crause) is having a conversation with his dead father. The scene became even funnier when he told his dad that he didn't know he was into the Classics IV.
  • Jonnie from St. Louis, Mo The first recording of "Spooky" was an instrumental version by saxophonist Mike Sharp. It was a 1966 - 1967 release...forgotten by most, but always one of my personal favorites. There is also a recent Smooth Jazz version of "Spooky" by David Sanborn which is excellent...and faithful to the original version. (Mike Sharp (Shapiro) was part of the team that wrote "Spooky". J.R. Cobb, Buddy Buie & Harry Middlebrooks, Jr. were all listed as writers. They eventually became The Atlanta Rhythm Section. And the rest is history.) Jonnie King/WSSM, St. Louis

The Classics IV

11 SONGS • 27 MINUTES • JAN 01 1968


Anyone who doesn't have a clear image of the Classics IV can be forgiven -- they went through so many shifts in personnel and sound (not to mention a name change after they'd started recording), they were little more than a name attached to some excellent (and very good-selling) records of the second half of the 1960s, without a personality or identity to grab onto easily.

Although they're considered a late-'60s phenomenon, owing to the chronology of their hits, the group can trace its roots back to R&B harmony (i.e. doo wop) music of the late '50s. Detroit-born, Florida-raised Dennis Yost, who joined on drums and moved into the singer's spot, came from a Jacksonville-area band called the Echoes; he was just old enough to remember '50s R&B when it was current and, among many other groups, loved the Five Satins; and in addition to playing the skins, he sometimes liked to sing when the calls came for a '50s number like "In the Still of the Night." After his own group broke up in the mid-'60s, Yost joined a band called Leroy & the Moments, which included Wally Eaton (bass, vocals), James Cobb (guitar), and Joe Wilson (keyboards). His arrival, along with the changing times, also signaled a change in the group's name -- as there was no "Leroy," that could go, and the Moments was already taken, so, taking their lead from Yost's Classic-model drum kit, they became the Classics.

Their sound was extremely diverse by all accounts; they could cover most of the Top 40 note-perfect, which was ideal for audiences in Jacksonville but didn't necessarily give them much to work with as a recording act. Part of their act included a tribute to the Four Seasons, who were still burning up the charts in those days, and when the group was signed to Capitol Records in 1966, they made their debut that fall with a Joe South song called "Pollyanna." The single was virtually a faux Four Seasons record in style and sound, and it was just different and fresh enough that it might have done well, except that the management of the actual Four Seasons reportedly took offense and did their best to keep "Pollyanna"'s presence to a minimum on the New York airwaves. To top it off, the group was threatened with legal action by a Brooklyn-based vocal outfit called the Classics, who'd already charted a single.

Thus, Florida's Classics became the Classics IV, and for all of that trouble, their debut record fizzled at number 103 on the charts. "Pollyanna" might have made a good debut in 1966, but releasing a remake of the Diamonds' 1950s hit "Little Darlin'" -- produced by Joe South -- in January of 1967 was plain bad timing for a good record that had no place to go. (Ironically, two years or so later, with the nostalgia craze starting to kick in, that might have been another story). The record was actually more important for its B-side, which had a faux Righteous Brothers song called "Nothing to Lose," co-authored by guitarist James Cobb and Buddy Buie, who would soon take on a much bigger role. It was also sung by Cobb and Yost, subbing for Bill Medley and Bobby Hatfield. By that time, the group had also relocated to Atlanta, and were unbowed in their quest for success, despite the end of the first recording deal.

Their Capitol contract was behind them by the spring of 1967, and the following summer, the group moved on to Imperial Records. Once a home to New Orleans-based R&B stars like Fats Domino and Dave Bartholomew, Imperial had been absorbed into Liberty Records and was now a much more pop/rock-oriented operation, with the imprint even being used for the early U.S. releases of records by the Hollies. It was at this point that things started going the group's way. Buie and Cobb heard an instrumental entitled "Spooky" and came up with words for it, along with a new arrangement by Cobb. The record, released in September of 1967, broke out in Louisville, Kentucky and began getting picked up by stations around the country, building slowly to a number three national hit that winter of 1967-1968. Suddenly there was a serious future in the offing for the Classics IV -- but not for Cobb as a member, nor for Yost as a drummer. The sudden infusion of royalty money on the shared copyright of "Spooky" eliminated the need for Cobb to remain as the group's guitarist, and suddenly Yost's position behind the kit on what was now a very heavy national touring schedule became untenable. Cobb kept writing and also sometimes doing the group's arrangements with Buie (who became the producer of the Classics IV), alternating with official arranger Emory Gordy, but he gave up playing onstage with the band, preferring the less draining life of a session guitarist, and was replaced in the lineup by Auburn Burrell. Meanwhile, Yost stepped up to the microphone full-time, while Kim Venable took over on the drums. They were no longer, strictly speaking, the "Classics IV," but that hardly mattered, as the band's lineup situation quickly got a lot more complicated.

As they were now a national-level act with an audience across a continent, it was decided by Buie and Imperial that there was no reason to limit themselves to the talents -- fine as they might've been -- of the actual members when it came to the sounds on their records. In place of the members, apart from group alumnus Cobb, the Classics IV's records soon began featuring some of Atlanta's top session musicians, among them drummer Robert Nix, while the touring membership included Dean Daughtry and Bill Gilmore on keyboards and bass, respectively, all late of Roy Orbison's band the Candymen. All of these personnel shifts, coupled with a bumper crop of Cobb-Buie songs, made for a strong debut album, entitled Spooky. The only problem, in retrospect, was that the sounds were too diverse -- it was hard to pin down an identity for the Classics IV, listening to the album. Among top American groups, the Beach Boys also relied on session musicians after 1964, but they always made sure Carl Wilson's guitar was there, and their voices were easily recognizable. Apart from Yost's singing, there wasn't a lot of unity in the Classics IV's sound.

Their next couple of singles, "Soul Train" and "Mamas and Papas," didn't do more than a fraction of the business done by "Spooky," though the group was permitted to record a second LP, which failed to sell in any serious numbers, at least initially. One song off of the album, entitled "Stormy," was given a single release, and suddenly the group was back in the Top Five in the fall of 1968. For the first time, they also made the easy listening chart as well. They made a return visit, this time all the way to the number two spot, in the winter of 1969 with "Traces," another Cobb/Buie collaboration, with help from arranger Emory Gordy. The group's longevity seemed assured, but an interesting shift had taken place in their output across the preceding two years: they'd gone from being a solid rock & roll cover band to delivering a much softer, more laid-back pop/rock sound with a Southern flavor but not a lot of wattage, and closer in spirit to, say, the work of Roy Orbison circa 1967 and 1968 than to what was considered rock music in 1969 and 1970. Further, their singles, although they still made the main pop chart, were starting to place better numbers on the easy listening chart, on records such as "Everyday with You Girl," which reached number 19 as a pop/rock single and number 12 on the easy listening chart in 1969.

Amid this flurry of activity, the group's name was changed in the new decade, so that they were known officially as Dennis Yost & the Classics IV. Their chart action declined throughout 1971, however, amid the changing tastes of the public and the reorganization of their record label -- which had merged with United Artists -- made the environment at Liberty inhospitable. Dennis Yost and the Classics IV shifted to MGM Records in 1972 and lasted through one album and a last pop hit, with "What Am I Crying For," along with a string of attempts through 1975. By that time, Cobb, Daughtry, and Buie had split off to form the Atlanta Rhythm Section. At that point, Dennis Yost went solo, or tried to -- meanwhile, the Atlanta Rhythm Section, amid all of their other successes, enjoyed a new hit with "Spooky" in 1979, while Santana returned "Stormy" to the charts. Yost became a fixture on the oldies circuit alongside his one-time Imperial labelmate, Gary Lewis, and other denizens of the mid-'60s singles charts; he also wrote songs and became a producer. After securing the exclusive rights to the group name, he continued to perform into the early 21st century. Keyboard player Dean Daughtry died on January 26, 2023 in Huntsville, Alabama at the age of 76. ~ Bruce Eder

  19. Classics IV

    "Spooky" Classics IV ♪ ♪ ♪ In the cool of the evening. when everything is gettin' kind of groovy, I call you up and ask you. If you like to go with me and see a movie, First you say, "no," You've got some plans for the night, And then you stop, and say, "Alright" Love is kinda crazy. see lyrics >>
