About Dave Mason
Before embarking on a solo career and hitting it big with the breakup masterpiece "We Just Disagree," Dave Mason was a founding member of British jazz-rock supergroup Traffic. Upon leaving Traffic over artistic differences with Steve Winwood, Mason did time with seminal country rock 'n' gospel hippies Delaney & Bonnie. In 1970, he went solo and released Alone Together, which did well on the strength of the modest hit "Only You Know And I Know," a song previously performed by Delaney & Bonnie. Mason continued to release records into the '70s, moving in a lite rock direction all the while, but he did not hit it big until 1977's Let It Flow, which featured the aforementioned "We Just Disagree." Anyone born in the '70s is likely to know this song by heart, thanks to it having one of the catchiest choruses ever written and its success on AM and FM radio. But Mason's career flagged from this point, and he never scored another hit again. Nevertheless, he has always been respected as a talented, if minor, songwriter.
