“It’s A Beautiful Day” might have become much more well-known if it weren’t for a coin. The band nearly received an invitation to perform at Woodstock. Bill Graham insisted that Michael Lang put one of the two acts he managed on the bill when Graham and Lang were negotiating for the Grateful Dead to appear.
