It's a Beautiful Day was sued and screwed out of existence by one of it's former managers, who wound up with ownership of the name and songs. The LP disapeared from stores in the early 70's. Mine was stolen in the 80's. The LP and now the CD are being marketed by the San Fransisco Sound Company. Their sales do not benefit the origanal band members at all.

Watching the same thing happen to some guys that recorded in a studio I worked at cured me of the usual "I wanna be a rock star" itch many young guitar players had.

Of course Jean Luc Ponty must be mentioned, but I have a few LP's by a group called Curved Air. Darryl Way was the electric fiddle player. He sometimes played the violin through an Echoplex. They are still touring 40 years later.

If we're talking 60s/70s psychedelia I nominate:

YouTube - Blossom Toes - Love Bomb

YouTube - Hot Smoke And Sasafrass- Bubblepuppy- 1969

YouTube - Aorta - Strange

and a particular favourite I've just discovered

YouTube - Cold Sun - here in the year

(but all are just samples from albums brimming with good stuff)

These local Miami musicians played the local club scene and several free outdoor gigs put on by Miami or Dade county to keep us bored teenagers out of trouble. They had a hit on the radio and were signed to a two record contract. All of the demo material for the second record was recorded where I worked part time. The record company kept rejecting their material until the deadline passed, then took ownership of everything. The singer, Lydia Jamene Miller, was sent to Big Brother and the Holding Company to replace Janis (Lydia passed away in 1978) and the rest was discarded.

Their one hit:

YouTube - Fantasy 1969 05 Stoned Cowboy

It was an incidental song in a 1967 comedy film, but isn't this rather good?

And of course Papa John Creach and Don Sugarcane Harris.
I have an old Ponty LP "Violin Summit" with Stephane Grappelli, Stuff Smith, and Svend Asmussen. Not rock, but great for what it is.
And I have another Ponty LP, titled "Violin Summit" also, with French bandmates playing a much more fusion style. Interplay between Jean-Luc and Philip Catherine elicits comparisons with Jan Hammer and Tommy Bolin from Billy Cobham's "Spectrum". Great stuff!
