IT'S A BEAUTIFUL DAY - Live at The Fillmore '68 (2013)
A San Francisco psychedelic folk-rock band built around the violinist David LaFlamme and the soaring vocals of singer Pattie Santos, It's a Beautiful Day hit their creative and commercial peak with 1969's "White Bird," an FM radio staple, and then pretty much played out its string, succumbing to the myriad pressures of the music industry, but for a year or two there, It's a Beautiful Day was one of San Francisco's best bands. This set features the band in its prime playing live a little less than a year before the release of their first album. Early recording of this iconic band from San Francisco along with a DVD history of the band with live performances 1968 was certainly a banner year for It's A Beautiful Day. They had been performing at the Avalon Ballroom and The Fillmore Auditorium and had achieved a certain amount of success on a local level but nothing really happened until they were invited to play an opening set at the Oakland Coliseum for Cream.
