"Historic and hummable, this is a hallmark in the journey to the '70's."
A sublime songwriter and a superb storyteller, John Sebastian was a founding member of the Rock and
Roll Hall of Fame mid-'60s master folk-rock group, Lovin' Spoonful. In the early '60s, he was a key
member of the Even Dozen Jug Band and the Mugwumps with other soon-to-be famous (at least in folk
circles) band mates like Maria Muldaur, David Grisman, Joshua Rifkin, Stefan Grossman, Steven Katz,
Peter Siegel and Cass Elliot - the Mamas and Papas immortalized him in the song 'Creque Alley' ("In
a coffeehouse Sebastian sat/ And after every number they pass the hat").
In early 1968 John left the Spoonful to pursue a solo career. As his debut album was being prepared for
release, Sebastian's solo career received an unanticipated boost through his impromptu appearance at
the Woodstock Festival in August 1969. His acoustic version of "I Had a Dream" and "Rainbows All Over
Your Blues," appeared on the best selling 1970 Woodstock soundtrack of Michael Wadleigh's documentary
film of the festival. The album also includes several songs that would become staples of Sebastian's live
performances during the early and mid-1970's, most notably, "She's a Lady."
John B. Sebastian serves well to showcase Sebastian's faculty with numerous instruments and musical
styles and would be his most successful solo album, ultimately peaking at #20 on the Billboard pop
albums chart. An overlooked classic full of great music and genuine warmth.
