"Although best known for producing the first two albums by The Band (Music from Big Pink and The Band), John Simon also produced Big Brother and the Holding Company's Cheap Thrills (featuring Janis Joplin), Simon and Garfunkel's Bookends, Leonard Cohen's debut and the first LP by Blood, Sweat and Tears. In 1971, John released this debut solo album on Warner Bros. The songs range from psychedelic nursery rhymes to dream-like confessionals. 'Davy's On The Road Again' (later a hit for Manfred Mann), was co-written with Robbie Robertson. The musicians' credits reads like a who's who of Seventies rock: Leon Russell, Bobby Keys, Jim Price, Grady Tate, Rita Coolidge, Bobby Whitlock, Merry Clayton, Harvey Brooks, members of The Band, Derek and the Dominoes and Muscle Shoals session players."
