In a nutshell …
Neil’s manager Morey Alexander received a call from RCA Records asking Neil to put a jam album together like Merryweather’s “Word of Mouth”.
Neil Merryweather, Charlie Musselwhite and Barry Goldberg were reunited again after playing on the Capitol Records album together.
“Merryweather, Richardson & Boers” were the band that jammed with Barry and Charlie. J.J. Velker played on a few tracks.
Neil brought Lynn Carey to the sessions as a guest artist.
The reunion occurred at RCA Studios on Ivar Avenue, thus the name “Ivar Avenue Reunion”.
