Friday evenings during the summer the city of Louisville has a street fair with music. Last night the featured artist was It’s a Beautiful Day. It had been a while since I thought about them, but I have their debut album, issued in 1969. The violinist and lead singer are still the original LaFlammes and they’re doing great 40 years later. You should have seen the gray-hairs dancing in their tie dye.
We need your help solving a small mystery: who was Bill Bueno? (A rare but fuzzy photo image is below.) (And this is not the same Bill Bueno, we don’t believe, as the one who started the eponymous Bill Bueno Mallet Works. And no, www.BillBueno.com doesn’t help, either. And don’t get started on the whole William thing.)
