Background: Released in 1969, Three Dog Night was the first album by the group of the same name.

Three Dog Night’s self-titled debut is one of the strongest and most cohesive offerings by the combo. Their claim to fame would come via overhauls and sleepers from a wide spectrum of luminous singer/songwriters. The moniker refers to lead vocalists Danny Hutton, Chuck Negron and Cory Wells, but credit is overdue for the incendiary instrumentalists: Mike Allsup (guitar), Jimmy Greenspoon (keyboards), Joe Schermie (bass) and Floyd Sneed (drums). The combo’s initial achievement came in April of 1969 after their remake of Harry Nilsson’s loner/heartbreak anthem “One” landed in the Top Five. So successful was the track, the record label emblazoned the name of the song onto the cover art — resulting in the long-player also (albeit erroneously) being identified as “One.”
