Joe Boyd, the leader of the Elektra-Office in London describes in his book "White Bicycles" (2006), that he and Paul Rothchild had produced a Folk-Rock Group with composers Sebastian/Yanovsky, that became "The Lovin' Spoonful". When they decided to sign at Kama Sutra Records, they offered Paul Rothchild four songs to give comfort. These songs were thought to become part of an electric "Blues Project" record with additional material from The Butterfield Blues Band and other Elektra Artists. Joe Boyd was asked to complete the album with a British Blues Band. He and Paul Jones, leadsinger at Manfred Mann, brought a supergroup together, consisting of Eric Clapton (g), Steve Winwood (voc on "Steppin' Out" and "Crossroads"), Paul Jones (harp, voc on "I want to know"), Jack Bruce (b) and Pete York (dr) named Eric Clapton and the Powerhouse. The Electric Blues Project was then published with the title "What's Shakin'"

Strange that the first stereo version listed is from 1968. It was released simultaneously on mono and stereo with the stereo on the shiny gold label. What's more is that original copies had a fold over insert and a caption on the back cover stating "Descriptive Notes and Photos Enclosed". I don't know if this was on later copies. The Lovin' Spoonful biography is clearly prior to them being signed by Kama Sutra or having hits. There is no Powerhouse bio, only an Eric Clapton photo stating that he leads The Powerhouse and that the singer is Steve Anglo(later known as Winwood).
