Background: Released in 1970, Marrying Maiden was the second album by San Francisco’s It’s a Beautiful Day. The album was actually their highest-charting LP, reaching #45 on the U.S. album charts.
The second long-player from It’s a Beautiful Day 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 and proto-prog of its earlier works and into a lighter and earthier country-flavored rock.
