This song comes from the group’s first self-titled album, It’s a Beautiful Day, released in 1969. The lyrics came about from the group’s brief living conditions in 1967: living in the attic of a house owned by their manager, not having a vehicle, and being unable to go outside due to the inclement weather. It was the group’s most successful song and was covered by violinist Vanessa Mae in 2001.

Although they are not one of the better-known San Francisco bands to have emerged from the ballroom circuit of the late ’60s and early ’70s, It’s a Beautiful Day were no less memorable for their unique progressive rock style that contrasted well with the Bay Area psychedelic scene.
