My old Greenwich Village folk days roommate Erik Jacobsen became the Lovin' Spoonfull's record producer. In 1966, my first year of photographing, he called me on the phone in L.A. . "Henry, you wanna learn to be a photographer? Come out to New York for the summer and travel with the Spoonfull on tour. The boys need a lot of pictures; we'll pay all your expenses, and pay you for all that gets used, and you'll learn." So I did. The Spoonfull, however, did not like the concept of posing for group shots Here's an example of their cooperation.
