After getting an early break playing John Lennon in a touring company of the Broadway musical Beatlemania, Marshall Crenshaw began his recording career with the now-legendary indie single "Something's Gonna Happen." His growing notoriety in his adopted hometown of New York City helped to win Crenshaw a deal with Warner Bros., which released his self-titled 1982 debut album. That collection established Crenshaw as one of the era's preeminent rock ' n' rollers, and that was confirmed by such subsequent albums as Field Day, Downtown, Mary Jean & 9 Others, Good Evening, Life's Too Short, Miracle of Science, #447, What's in the Bag? and Jaggedland. 1999's #447 served as Crenshaw's fourth for the independent Razor & Tie imprint and it finds him further refining the masterful pop songwriting he made his name on with well-crafted originals like "Dime a Dozen Guy," "Television Light," "Glad Goodbye," and "Right There in Front of Me."
