The Even Dozen Jug Band was less a band than a short-lived project thrown together at the height of the jug band craze in 1964 toward the end of the American Folk Revival. Like other jug bands of the era, the Even Dozen Jug Band loosely based their style on jug band music from the 1920s (the Memphis Jug Band and Cannon's Jug Stompers) and relied on unusual instruments like kazoos, jugs, and washboards. Unlike other jug bands of the era, the Even Dozen Jug Band boasted an enormous line-up that included future notables like John Sebastian (the Loving Spoonful) and Maria Muldaur. In the band's short life span, it played very few live dates, but it did leave behind an excellent self-titled LP in 1964 for Elektra.

While often overshadowed by band members later achievements, The Even Dozen Jug Band is one of the most distinguished albums of the late revival. Unlike the many protest songs of the era, "Take Your Fingers Off It" and "Evolution Mama" offered no deeper moral message than to have a good time. This lack of seriousness was a sobering smack in the face to the revival's self-righteous streak. The instrumental work, featured on "Original Colossal Drag Rag" and "The Even Dozens," was loose and adventurous, inviting audiences to kick off their shoes and dance. The album also included a number of sexually suggestive songs--"Come On In" and "All Worn Out"--that would've never shown up on a Joan Baez album.

The Even Dozen Jug Band eventually fell apart when the members--many who were very young--chose staying in school over hitting the road to promote the group. Still, as Richie Unterberger pointed out in the liner notes to The Even Dozen Jug Band, most of the members eventually entered the music business in some capacity. Steve Katz joined Blood, Sweat, & Tears while David Grisman formed his own quintet in the '70s. After performing with another jug band (Jim Kweskin), Muldaur became a solo artist in her own right, scoring a big hit with "Midnight on the Oasis" in the early '70s. Stefan Grossman set up his own guitar workshop while Joshua Rifkin worked as an arranger with Judy Collins. All members, however, could always look back with a certain amount of pride at their first musical enterprise. After 40 years, The Even Dozen Jug Band remains sassy, irreverent, and most of all, fun. ---Ronnie D. Lankford, Jr., allmusic.com

Phil Ochs was a singer/songwriter during the 1960's (variously categorized as ``topical'', ``protest'' and ``folk''). He was a contemporary (and friend) of Bob Dylan. (who said: ``I just can't keep up with Phil. And he's getting better and better and better.'') He was a prolific writer of protest songs such as Draft Dodger Rag, I Ain't Marchin' Anymore and Outside Of A Small Circle Of Friends. His output diminished at the end of the 60's after putting out 7 albums. He wrote little in the 70's and, sadly, took his own life in 1976. ---web.cecs.pdx.edu

Moody, bluesy, and melodic, Fred Neil was one of the most compelling folk-rockers to emerge from Greenwich Village in the mid-’60s. His albums showcased his extraordinarily low, rich voice on intensely personal and reflective compositions. His influence was subtle but significant; before forming the Lovin’ Spoonful, John Sebastian played harmonica on Neil’s first album, which also featured guitarist Felix Pappalardi, who went on to produce Cream. The Jefferson Airplane featured Neil’s “Other Side of This Life” prominently in their concerts, and dedicated a couple of songs (“Ballad of You and Me and Pooneil” and “House at Pooneil Corner”) to him. On the B-side of “Crying” is Neil’s “Candy Man,” one of Roy Orbison’s bluesiest efforts. Stephen Stills has mentioned Neil as an influence on his guitar playing. Most famously, Harry Nilsson took Neil’s “Everybody’s Talkin'” into the Top Ten as the theme to the movie Midnight Cowboy.

For all his tangential influence, Neil himself remained an enigmatic, mysterious figure. His recorded output was formidable but sparse. During 1964 he recorded as a duo with Vince Martin, which yielded an album for Elektra, Tear Down the Walls. His drumless solo debut, Bleecker & MacDougal (which did have additional instruments), ranked as one of the best efforts from the era in which folk was just beginning its transition to folk-rock. The bluesiest of his albums, it contained some of his best songs, including “Little Bit of Rain,” “Other Side of This Life,” and “Candy Man.” His true peak was his follow-up, Fred Neil, which made a full transition to electric instruments. Less bluesy in tenor, it featured “Everybody’s Talkin’,” as well as an equal gem in “The Dolphins.”

Neil’s subsequent slide into obscurity was strange and quick. Sessions, from 1968, was a much more casual and slapdash affair that included some instrumental jamming. Always a recluse, he retreated to his home in Coconut Grove, FL, after achieving cult success, and didn’t release anything after a live album in 1971. His obscurity was enforced by an absence of domestic compact-disc reissues of his best work, a situation rectified with a superb best-of compilation by Collectors’ Choice and the 2001 reissue of Tear Down the Walls/Bleecker & MacDougal by Elektra. He continued to play, but only for those close to him. Neil, ill with cancer, unexpectedly passed on July 7, 2001, at his home in Florida. --–Richie Unterberge, allmusic.com
