   A final post in this run of QMS material. Here's a brief history of the band in it's various incarnations. I tried to select some material that you may  or may not have heard. I could spend all day putting together this great music from San Francisco's finest!

01  Maiden Of The Cancer Moon/ Calvary ...... A live selection from the classic QMS lineup. Taken from the "Happy Trails" recording time frame. Several takes of this guitar driven psychedelics were edited to the classic LP's " live" release.

02  Codine.
03  Babe, I'm Gonna Leave You .... " Revolution" tracks  Both of these tracks were recorded specifically for the soundtrack but were staple items in the QMS concert playlist

05  I Hear You Knockin'..... blues standard tunes played early in the band's early live shows

06  It's Been Too Long...... A band original from the first LP

Thanks so much for this QMS run. I had most of them from your earlier posts, but found a couple of new ones too! Silver Nuggets was cool also, I've made myself a couple of compilations and the hardest part is always what to leave out! Hope it's not too long before we see some more Quicksilver or Moby Grape stuff.

Quicksilver was one of my favorite groups, and only "collectable" music i could find was a double vinyl live set from the fillmore. Thank
you and other Cippolina fans. I have so much great music. Thanks to you and all your friends.
