This is the album that Tom Rapp had no knowledge of .... until the day he went into a record shop and saw his own friendly smile beaming from the LP display racks. Yup - Reprise issued this album of demos without consulting Tom. Somewhat shady practice, surely?

Tom Rapp was treated badly by his previous label, ESP. The PBS albums sold hundreds of thousands on that label, but royalties were scarce. He might have thought he was safer with a major label .... but, nope, it was almost as bad.

Despite that, this is a good album of previously recorded PBS songs given a straighter reading. If you didn't know they were demos you might not notice. These are great songs that deserved better treatment than they received at the hands of ol' blue eyes' label.
