Such was the case of Simon Dupree & the Big Sound, who neither had a "Simon Dupree" nor a very big following for much of their existence. Not that they weren't good. But apart from Big Country and maybe the Big Bopper, not too many acts using the name "Big" have gone very far with the public. Their debut album, Without Reservations, containing the first fragmentary examples of the group's original songwriting, was released in August of 1967, just in time to be overlooked as cheerfully irrelevant in the wake of Sgt.
