Artist Biography by

The Steve Baron Quartet recorded an obscure album in 1969, The Mother of Us All, that combined Baroque folk-rock with some psychedelia, jazz, orchestration, pop, and singer/songwriter balladry in an unusual if erratic manner. Prior to the album, Steve Baron had been in the Hardly Worthit Players, a satirical group that had a Top 20 hit (credited to Senator Bobby in 1967) with a takeoff on "Wild Thing," featuring a lead vocal that was an obvious facsimile of then-Senator Robert F. Kennedy. Baron also wrote a song, "Loneliness," that was recorded by Jim & Jean on their 1966 folk-rock album, Changes.
