NEW YEAR'S 67 -68

"Quicksilver’s final performance of a three-night Winterland run. This night they were opening for local friends Jefferson Airplane.

It's New Years Eve 1967/68, and QMS is surrounded by friends and family both on the stage and off. It's obvious from the relaxed instrumental beginning that this will be a long, psychedelic night. With little or no thought of time constraints, almost all the material from the previous two nights is included again in this set. Strong improvisational versions of "Who Do You Love," "Smokestack Lightning" and another extended jam on "Gold and Silver" are highlights, as is the set closing "Mona," which travels to the outer regions of psychedelia and showcases John Cipollina and Gary Duncan's intertwining guitar work - essentially a preview of where they would head on their next album, Happy Trails.

Disc One - QMS set

Following sets by Quicksilver Messenger Service, Big Brother and the Holding Company, and Jefferson Airplane, a free form jam ensued, featuring members of all three bands - a memorable way to ring in the New Year, to say the least."

Disc Two - SF Musicians Jam

Thank you! Great way to start 2011. I've had the first part for awhile, but not the late night "Jam Session". Thanks again for this whole run of Quicksilver shows & studio sessions. I got a chance to fill in some holes in my collection, and revisit some old favorites. I'm a big QMS fan too, and they have left quite a legacy of fine music, & every fan can find one or more eras to enjoy. Hope we don't have wait too long for any more shows that turn up! Maybe a QMS of the week?!? Have a great, healthy New Year.
