That video doesn't really do them as much justice as this one, which is one of my favourite songs of theirs:

Thanks for this, Garret. Not too long ago, an old friend said that he had bought a CD of that album for $3.00. He said that I was the only person that he knew with it on vinyl back in the day. I always loved that album.

I think I still have the LP somewhere in a box:

Glad you enjoyed it. I would have the album except that the VW bus I drove home from college, filled with all my stuff, caught on fire & everything was gone. Had a quick fresh start on life! ;)

I got to see them perform it live in a fantastic show - around 1970. Steve Miller, It's a Beautiful Day & Boz Scaggs (obviously after he left Steve Miller). IABD played almost 2 hours & absolutely stole the show. Even though SMB was the headliner, people started leaving while he was playing because it was such a let down (& I like the SMB).

They played that song on an episode of Star Trek way back when.

Not a flashback - but on the lighter side...
