Three Dog Night had begun a successful career with their hit cover version of Harry Nilsson's "One" from their first album, which made it to #5 in early 1969. Their second album came out that same year, with another fantastic selection of cover songs, in rocking vocal-centric arrangements, and proved to be an even greater success. The songs included Dave Mason's "Feelin' Alright", Sam Cooke's "A Change Is Gonna Come", Elton John's "Lady Samantha", and Laura Nyro's "Eli's Coming". The album generated three more hits - "Celebrate", written by Alan Gordon, got to #15, "Eli's Coming" made it to #10, and "Easy To Be Hard", originally from the musical Hair, became their biggest hit to date at #4.
