Eric Andersen's fourth album saw him embrace the folk-rock movement with a new set of songs, after the cop-out of 1967's 'Bout Changes 'n' Things Take 2, which had been just new rock-based recordings of earlier songs. More Hits From Tin Can Alley had the sound of a singer-songwriter seeing what he could do once he had moved outside the borders of acoustic folk. As well as drums and electric guitars, it featured horns, strings, honky tonk pianos, and more. The musicians featured included a number of familiar names, among them guitarist Amos Garrett, drummers Kenny Buttrey and Bobby Gregg, keyboardists Paul Griffin and Paul Harris, and Al Kooper.
