Sammy Johns is the first studio album by singer and songwriter Sammy Johns. "After his eponymous debut album from General Recording Corporation, which included "Chevy Van," the singer inked a deal in 1976 with Warner-Curb, which resulted in Johns working on the soundtrack to The Van, the first movie to feature Danny DeVito." - Linda Seida, All Music Guide

In 1996 Sammy Kershaw did a cover of "Chevy Van" on his album Politics, Religion and Her.
