John B. Sebastian
LP 
Price: $28.79

Product Notes

Limited 180gm vinyl LP pressing in gatefold jacket. A sublime songwriter and a superb storyteller, John Sebastian was a founding member of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame mid-'60s 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. 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-1970s, 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. "Historic and hummable, this is a hallmark in the journey to the '70s."
