Azitis was a California quartet featuring "Don Lower" (vocals, bass guitar), "Michael Welch" (lead and rhythm guitars, flute), "Dennis Sullivan" (organ and piano), and "Steve Nelson" (vocals, drums). Originally known as "Help", until threatened with legal action by the British band (on "Decca Records")of the same name they changed the name in Azitis (pronounced "as-it-is" from a reference to the biblical verse, "Thy will be done on earth [azitis] in heaven"). The band was first conceived in 1966 by Sacramento-area musicians "Don Lower" and "Steve Nelson". "Don Lower" had cut his musical teeth playing in two of the area's better Garage Rock outfits, "The Cambridge Coroners" and "The Roadside Business", and after "Don Lower" met "Steve Nelson", the two formed a songwriting partnership. By 1969, the band had reached a level of quality that necessitated the production of recorded music. After signing to Sacramento's own "Elco Records" in 1969, the enormous volume of original songs made it difficult to choose which to produce. After many performances and audience reactions, two compositions were chosen and a date was reserved for the recording session: "Life Worth Living" backed with "Questions Why". From there, the four-piece changed its name to Azitis, and in 1971, the band cut its first and only full-length, "Help", a Christian Psychedelic classic.
