This 1973 release by Warner Brothers on their Reprise label with Maria Muldaur reached #6 on the Billboard Hot 100 List in 1973.

Muldaur was born Maria Grazia Rosa Domenica D'Amato in Greenwich Village, New York City in 1943 and began her career in the early 1960's in a group called the Even Dozen Jug Band. John Sebastian, David Grisman and Stefan Grossman were also in that band. 

She eventually married fellow Jug Band member Geoff Muldaur, and after that group broke up they produced two albums. After 1972 when her marriage broke up she began her solo career as Maria Muldaur. 

Her first solo album, Maria Muldaur, released in 1973, contained her hit single "Midnight at the Oasis". In 1974 she released her second album, Waitress in a Donut Shop. 

Muldaur established a relationship with the Grateful Dead. She opened some of their summer shows in 1974. She eventually became a backing vocalist with the group.

Her 2005 release Sweet Lovin' Ol' Soul was nominated for both a Blues Music Award (formerly W.C.Handy Award) and a Grammy Award in the Traditional Blues Category. 

This 45rpm record was used for some radio airplay and on the A side are some timing marks and dates that are from that time. The record still sounds good and in good condition.
