Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Jerry Merrick is an American singer-songwriter. His songs have been recorded by Richie Havens, B.J. Thomas, Jerry Jeff Walker, and Susan Tedeschi. Merrick is best known for writing "Follow," which appeared on the 1967 Richie Havens release Mixed Bag (MCA Verve/Folkways), which Rolling Stone called a "Sixties folk epic." Havens also performed the song in concert appearances at the Newport Folk Festival and Carnegie Hall. The piece has since appeared within the soundtrack of several films. Subsequently, Merrick went on to record an album of original compositions for Mercury Records, released in 1969. Following this he moved his family away from New York City and teamed up briefly with fellow Mercury artist Kenny Rankin to appear on The Tonight Show, and open for Flip Wilson in various venues throughout the US. However, a decision to focus on his growing family eventually led him to withdraw from the music industry.show more
