"... Sam Gary Sings, the only solo recording of Josh (White)'s longtime friend and musical partner. Issued on London's Esquire Records and in the States on the short-lived Transition label, it purports to feature one Dean Laurence on guitar, and to have been recorded in Cambridge, Massachusetts, but Laurence plays on only two cuts, and the dates would seem to place Josh and Gary in England. Wherever the record was made, most of it features Josh, tastefully framing Gary's vocals and adding vocal responses on 'Scandalize My Name,' a rewrite of 'Scandalous and a Shame', the song with which Josh had made his recording debute at age fourteen. Josh often backed Gary at parties and gave him solo spots on stage, but this was the only time Gary stepped out of his sideman role on disc."
