Joy of Cooking (the band, not the book).


Well, I know Kris and Rita, and Marty Mull
Are meeting at the Troubadour,
We'll get it on with the Joy of Cooking
While the crowd cries out for more

--Peter Rowan, "Lonesome L.A. Cowboy"
In my last post I mentioned Joy of Cooking, the cookbook. This made me think of the band with that name, which emerged from the Berkeley scene in the early 1970s with a sound rooted in blues, funk, and country. I still have, somewhere, a vinyl disc of their second album Closer to the Ground. You can hear the title song from that album through the link above.
