More Info:

Quicksilver Messenger Service are considered to be one of the most important bands to come from the San Francisco music scene of the 60s along with their contemporaries The Grateful Dead and Jefferson Airplane. The band initially came together in 1965 and proceeded to play a great many gigs across America. This 2CD recording finds the band playing at the Carousel Ballroom in San Francisco. The Carousel was another of Bill Graham's venues and he would re-name it the Fillmore West and run it until 1971. When this recording was made it was just a few weeks after the release of their self-titled debut. The set includes "The Fool" and "Light Your Windows" alongside live favuorites "Who Do You Love"and "Walkin' Blues". The second disc however is the real pull for Quicksilver fans as it contains just the one track of the band doing what they do best and which sealed their reputation as a live band. The disc is taken up with an extended jam which never outstays it's welcome but which underpins the bands musical inventiveness and dexterity
