Limited vinyl LP pressing in deluxe tip-on jacket with debossing. Digitally remastered edition of this albumby the singer/songwriter. On March 4, 1975, Jim Sullivan mysteriously disappeared outside Santa Rosa, New Mexico. His VW bug was found abandoned, his motel room untouched. Some think he got lost. Some think the mafia bumped him. Some even think he was abducted by aliens. The self-titled LP was originally released on Playboy mogul Hugh Hefner's short-lived Playboy imprint. Horns sweeten this funky and bombastic session driven by Jim's unmistakably larger-than-life voice and exceptional song-writing chops, alongside a cast of legendary session musicians including Jim Hughart. Another LP you'll rarely see in the wild, it is by no means the poor relation of U.F.O., but rather a big stride into country, folk rock, and swampy blues, brass-bedecked, and with that uniqueness of phrasing-part crooner, part jazz singer-that makes Sullivan such a rare performer. Each song could have been a bonafide radio hit, but with spotty promotion and negative connotations surrounding the Playboy name, the self-titled album suffered a fate known all too well and fizzled out. While Sullivan's disappearance remains unsolved, his music endures and is finally gaining him the recognition he deserves, albeit long overdue.
