John Sebastian's relationship with Reprise records cooled after the commercial failure of his 1974 album Tarzana Kid, but he still owed one more record on his contract when his theme song for the television series Welcome Back, Kotter became a surprise hit in the spring of 1976. Reprise, naturally, called for an immediate LP tie-in, and Sebastian obliged. But he didn't really have an album's worth of top-flight tunes ready, and the result was an uneven collection filled out with a near-instrumental ("Let This Be Our Time to Get Along"), a folk-blues song he'd written in the early '60s ("Warm Baby"), and a remake of one of his old Lovin' Spoonful songs ("Didn't Wanna Have to Do It").
To say John Sebastian never reached the fame of sixties Spoonful times is surely true. But this say nothing about what he have done in the seventies. And it say nothing about his music. Welcome Back is an album with some really good songs on it (I needed her most when i told her to go, Welcome back, Don't wanna have to do it, You go your way and i'll go mine) You go your way... is surely an Eagles song without the Eagles but a very good one. All in all Sebastian have done a good album in 1976. End!
