From their fifth studio album, Cosmo’s Factory, the video offers a rare glimpse of the band on the road in the early ’70s. At the height of their international success, the camera follows the California rockers across their tour amid brightly lit stages and a myriad of planes, buses, motorcycles, and more.

The video comes ahead of Record Store Day’s exclusive Travelin’ Band (Live at the Royal Albert Hall) 7-inch vinyl coming on June 18. Mirroring the original double A-sided “Travelin’ Band”/ “Who’ll Stop the Rain” release in 1970, the re-issue showcases the tracks in a live setting.
