This song came out in 1970 and it reminded me of something out of “Hair”.
This group formed in 1967 as a blues band and with members already leaving and others coming. When they released their first unsuccessful album for a virtual unknown record label it wasn’t until they played the Miami Pop Festival in 1968 that they caught fire. Columbia signed the band.
Their first self entitled band name release in 69′ did alright, but their next in 70′ with the song’s titled album “Are You Ready” sent them on their way when it charted at #14 and the rest is history.
