RE-"correction": lumpy was right. Original bassist was Dennis Kelly.

It seemed odd that anyone would go out of their way to "correct" someone else's post, most especially an enthusiastic youth expressing pride in a teacher he believes to have been a once-famous bass player (and as it turns out: correctly), before at least doing a bit of fact checking themselves first. Unfortunately for the FormerRockerFromAZ, who may now need the ‘Jaws of Life’ to help extricate his foot from his mouth (ouch). (Be strong!)

So, for the record: Hobbs was not the "the" bass player, he was “a” bass player, one who stepped in for Kelly when he left for to go to college (presumably because he had bigger fish to fry, like going on to teach young lumpy, or living beyond the age of 45). Btw, this is nothing that should have presented much of problem for FormerRockerFromAZ to have found out for himself before pouncing on the kid (it's within the first paragraph of The McCoys wikipedia entry).

As for this collection, I'd say, "If you buy only one McCoys record, this is THE one to get!" (literally)

Sloopy Hoochie Coo

I give this 3 stars only beacause of the classic "Hang On Sloopy", a cover of the '64 hit by The Vibrations. Rick Derringer played lead guitar in The McCoys' version.
But of course you must already know this.
