Consumer Guide Reviews:

John B. Sebastian [Reprise, 1970]
Sebastian is as on for this solo debut as he ever was for the Lovin' Spoonful, and when he's on, the hummability quotient of his songs is dizzying--a good half of these imprint themselves upon impact. But just like Spoonful albums used to, this drags in the second half, and I feel vaguely let down. Maybe it's the gently paternalistic sexism of "She's a Lady" and "What She Thinks About." Or maybe it's his taste in T-shirts. B
