Three Dog Night exploded as a fully formed unit out of the late sixties Los Angeles club scene. They showcased their talents at the Troubadour to the assembled music industry and a bidding war ensued for their services. Dunhill Records eventually was able to sign the band and they entered the studio to record their first album. The group relied on outside songwriters, which gave them their pick of the cream of materiel coming out of this very fertile artistic period. In fact their debut album and stage act was peppered with material written by Lennon-McCartney, Steve Winwood, Neil Young, Randy Newman and Robbie Robertson just to name a few!
The album slowly crept up the charts as the singles released did progressively better until the Harry Nilsson penned One reached number 5 on the singles chart catapulting the group and their debut album into the stratosphere. Their constant touring as well as the success of One led to a gold album and the stage was set for their second album to ship gold, but more on that later.
The essay by author Paul Myers draws on interviews with group members and a selected track by track commentary adds further insight into the proceedings. The brilliant new mastering is done by noted engineer Vic Anesini.
