This one comes as a wonderful surprise! A true lost treasure from one of Frisco's ballroom groups.
A big thank you to the original up-loader for giving you and I a chance to hear one of those bands that had no known recordings . There are countless posters out there featuring the band. The most well known being from this very night when Allmen Joy was the opening act for the Doors
Here are a few notes from the text that came with the file.
If Blue Cheer made cream cheese outta the air, then these guys must have crystallized the heavens on a good night .A mix of Blue Cheer & Big Brother guitars, Country Joe & The Fish style ethereal moves & organ, & occasional Dead-like feedback & vocal insanity, mixed with 60s garage sounds & a nod to the Chambers Brothers... 60s West Coast manna from the vault.
This recording demands some real volume so hang out the freak flag & hope the neighbors are on vacation. A missing link in the 60s Bay Area music puzzle & undoubtedly one of the finest uploads ever offered so far . Not sure what might crawl out of the cave in the future, but this should shiver some timbers & shake some angel dust outta yr trees. Here's one from the depths of 1967 Haight Ashbury, where & when the love children were playing on the street & dancing in the park with rainbows in their eyes, flowers in their hair & the Allmen Joy filling their ears on many a night.
