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.
Here’s a YouTube video of their most famous song, White Bird. The scenes from Fillmore West and San Francisco brought back great memories from living in the Bay Area too.
