Welcome Back – John Sebastian (1976)
This American singer-songwriter originally found fame as leader of the 60’s band The Lovin’ Spoonful. They split in 1968 and he launched a solo career. Following this chart-topping hit, which was used as the theme song for a hit television series, Sebastian shifted his focus to writing music for animated television series. While this album was his last solo studio album, he’s remained a prolific collaborator over the years with other artists. He’s also become an advocate for jug band music, resulting in a 2010 documentary. Sebastian was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame (along with the rest of the Lovin’ Spoonful) in 2000, and into the Songwriters Hall of Fame in 2008.
