The band was originally known as Chocolate Hair. They changed their name to the name of a mountain outside of Boulder, Colorado, when they received their first reording contract.

They are best known for two songs, both of which hit the top 10 charts in the United States: the first in the autumn of 1970 (their biggest hit, reaching No. 3 on the Billboard chart, and today’s song slection in 1975 (US No. 9).

Today’s song is notable because it contained a practical joke at the expense of CBS Records, which had just turned them down for a recording contract. The song includes the sound of a touch-tone telephone number being dialed near the beginning and ending of the song. Those numbers were an unlisted phone number at CBS Records and a public number at the White House respectively. In addition, the recording includes snippets of the guitar riff of The Beatles’ “I Feel Fine”, Stevie Wonder’s “Superstition”, and a line of dialogue from Wolfman Jack stating the call sign of a radio station; numerous tracks of this line were cut to match local markets.

We got percentage points and lousy joints, and all the glitter we can use
