This is one of those recordings that you MUST have in your collection. There is nothing similar. I wore my LP out and then went to CD. The CD version is virtually the same quality as the LP. This recording defined It's a Beautiful Day. If you are a fan of the Grateful Dead, Jefferson Airplane/Starship and Pink Floyd, you understand those special bands who could swell a venue with emotion. It's a Beautiful Day is just one of those. You will not be disappoited.
My wife and I lived in San Francisco (Belmont, actually) from 1968-1976 and those were some very, very, very special times indeed. The music scene in the Bay Area was absolutely incredible and we had the opportunity to see a number of great bands in that era including IT'S A BEAUTIFUL DAY. They were absolutely fantastic in person with a truly unique sound all their own and very much the "tone" of San Francisco....if you know what I mean! We had a chance to be at Altamont (no...this band was not there) as well as many of the fine clubs featuring a variety of music in the area and it's a time that can never be duplicated. Just glad we were there for it all. Whether or not you're familiar with IT'S A BEAUTIFUL DAY, the music is outstanding in both composition and performance. Try it....you'll love it! The "Peace & Love" era was fabulous as were all the bands from that time! Peace to you & yours! S.M.
Wow...an album for its time. I loved this back in its day and still do. Like enjoying an old movie. Peace, love - I can smell the incense .... they don't make them like this anymore!
