“The best-known version was created by The Classics IV when guitarist James Cobb and producer Buddy Buie added lyrics centering on a ‘spooky little girl’. Cobb (along with bandmates Robert Nix and Dean Daughtry) later became part of the Atlanta Rhythm Section, re-recording and charting ‘Spooky’ again in 1979.”
