It's A Beautiful Day - Marrying Maiden (1970)

The second album from 1970 is an exceedingly more pastoral effort than the band's self-titled debut. As many of the Bay Area groups — most notably the Grateful Dead with Workingman's Dead and American Beauty — had begun to do, the band realigns its sound from the dark psychedelia of its earlier works and into a lighter and earthier country-flavored rock. Marrying Maiden does, however, continue highlighting both the sextet's stellar instrumental proficiencies as well as vocals — featuring the entire band — throughout.
Not as good as their selftitled debut but still very enjoyable music.

As mentioned, that's a different cover than the American album release. Is it the European cover?
I think ALL their albums are GREAT! Even the David LaFlamme solo album.

as far as I know, this is an ORIGINAL album cover, but more important thing is excellent music quality from LaFlemme & co!
all thumbs up!

it's not the cover the album had when I bought it back in the 70's.
