Released three years after his post-Beau Brummels solo album "Candlemaker", 1973's "Pan" found Ron Elliott returning to the recording environment with the band Pan. Showcasing the talents of singer Keith Barbour, drummer Don Francisco, bassist Sherman Hayes, and lead guitarist Arthur Richards, the high powered line-up quickly scored a contract with Columbia Records.
With Elliott responsible for all of the material, musically the album was quite diverse. Tracks such as "Long Way Home", "Garbage Man", and "More Than My Guitar" made it clear Elliott had been listening to more than his share of early-'70s country-rock bands - echoes of The Flying Burrito Brothers, Michael Nesmith and Poco abounded throughout the collection. That wasn't to say Elliott had totally lost his fascination with more commercial genres. "Love Glow (Calamity Jane)" was near perfect top-40 pop, while "Lady Honey" and "Dancing To the Band" both included buoyant CSN&Y styled harmonies.
