The Very Best of the Lovin' Spoonful is a compilation album of The Lovin' Spoonful hits spanning their career through the 1960s and the 1970s released in 1970.

The cover features clay sculptures of the band, with the band's signature lack of eyes, nose or mouth sculpted by Ollie Alpert and photographed by Bob Bailey. The motive is a clay remake of the cartoon image of the earlier "The Best of the Lovin' Spoonful" album.
