For me personally, Happy The Man was the greatest symphonic rock band that the US ever produced. Their greatness lay in their excellent musicianship and their willingness to really ‚push the envelope‘ both in terms of their writing and performances of their rich sound.

They came out of rural Virginia and moved to Washington D.C. where they exploded on the scene and where they quickly signed to Arista and released two classic  albums, eventually breaking up at the very end of the 70’s.

This is the final demo tape made by Happy The Man. It was recorded in February, 1979 at the band house in Reston, VA, using a Teac 3340 4-track tape deck. Basic tracks were recorded live by all members. Flute, sax vocals and some solos were overdubbed.
