Due to contractual obligations, on the album cover they were named E. Stoffel and H. Staalmeester respectively. For a part, the production was carried out by ex-Blizzard Dick Beekman, at the time drummer with Livin' Blues. The title track Rainman - sung as listlessly as the Dutch weather - provided the stage name, for a great part they took their inspiration from the music of Neil Young, John Lennon, James Taylor, the underground group Moby Grape and last but not least the compositional giant Tim Hardin.
The only cover tune on the album was Hardin's brilliant Don't Make Promises.
Anyone who listens to the reissue of Rainman (in the original artwork with insert, but with two previously unreleased bonus tracks), will recognize a typical 1971 production therein and understand at the same time why the reactions at the first release were so laudatory.
