The tragedy being that their laudable D.I.Y. efforts attracted the notice of The Man, namely the major label of Woodstock faves and then mega-selling rock stars Mountain (of Leslie West & Nantucket Sleighride fame). Slapped with an injunction insisting that the Bus's similiar name was an infringement on Mountain's
"copyright" and facing a legal bill they couldn't hope to contest the record label (Good Records) and the band Mountain Bus were forced to fold. The tragedy and cruellest of ironies is that Mountain Bus actually formed in 1967 years before Leslie's West's crew and that after destroying the career of the Bus, West broke up Mountain a year later. Both West and Felix Pappalardi insisted they knew nothing of the lawsuit but then neither did they attempt to reverse their record company's action.
