Hawthorne, CA, native Emitt Rhodes made his first mark in the music world in 1967 as the leader of the baroque pop band the Merry-Go-Round. The band achieved some marginal success with the Rhodes-penned Live and You're a Very Lovely Woman, recording one album of Magical Mystery Tour-inspired pop. Although this album may have been a contractual obligation, there is no doubt that Emitt Rhodes did not take the task of recording American Dream lightly. After disbanding his first group, the Merry-Go-Round, Rhodes still owed A&M Records another album
