It’s A Beautiful Day, Columbia CS-9768, 1969. Yes, the name of the band is It’s A Beautiful Day. I learned about It’s A Beautiful Day over at Wolfgang’s Vault back when you could listen for free. They were a San Francisco hippie band.
I found the album at a garage sale so I picked it up. The first time I was playing it the song “White Bird” came on and my wife (who usually has no idea what I’m doing musically) flipped out. You see, they used this song in Knight Rider once when David Hasselhoff runs into an old love and they sing it together or something. She grew up in the country so she really knows her TV shows, she didn’t have much else to do.
It’s an outstanding album that I would recommend to anyone.
Sorry folks, as of December 1, 2012, the photohost I've used for 15 years closed down, so most of my posts will not have pictures. I will be replacing them eventually. If there is a particular picture or post that you'd like to see, leave a comment or email me at mrpontiac at yahoo dot com and I'll get right on that post. Or you can go to my Flickr page and root around. Thanks.

About Retro Hound
Retro Hound is a place for collectors (especially me) to share vintage memorabilia that they have collected. I collect soda pop bottles; record albums (LPs and 45s, not really 78s); trading cards; magazines (especially hot rod magazines); interesting lithographic art from postcards or game boxes; that sort of thing.
I'll do some reviews of classic movies as well.
And remember, (mostly) Everything's for sale! Contact me at mrpontiac at yahoo dot com and have a clear subject line.
"What's *blank* worth?" is a question I get frequently. For the most part, I don't know. I've had this stuff for 20-30 years so I usually have to go to eBay or Craigslist to make a guess.
