Steven Grossman (September 1, 1951 in Brooklyn, New York – June 23, 1991 in San Francisco, California) “was a singer-songwriter from the early 1970s whose debut (and until 2011, only) album Caravan Tonight (1974) is distinguished as being the first album dealing with openly gay themes and subject matter to be released on a major label (Mercury Records). Stephen Holden of Rolling Stone hailed it as ‘one of the most auspicious singer-songwriter debuts of the ’70s.'” (Wikipedia)
