John Sebastian: Welcome Back Hits

Ken Barnes, Phonograph Record, May 1976

"I DID DOZE OFF for a long while." John Sebastian speaking, summing up his last few years. Up until a few weeks ago, that's how the average rock-fan-in-the-street pictured Sebastian – some sort of sentimental terminally tie-dyed acid casualty. Hardly a likely candidate for the office of Top 40 box-office champ, 1976 division.
