Quicksilver Messenger Service

Vinyl Records and Rare LPs:

Fillmore Auditorium Fe. 4th, 1967 With Dino Valenti
Used - LP - 900878
2010 2LP UK Issue. "Part Of A Series Of Live Recordings Unearthed After 40 Years, This Album Presents One Night Of A Three-Night Stand Quicksilver Messenger Service Played As Opening Act For Jefferson Airplane At The Fillmore Auditorium In San Francisco On February 4, 1967. The Recordings Are Especially Valuable Since Quicksilver Played For Years, Usually In And Around San Francisco, Before Releasing Its First Album, Quicksilver Messenger Service, In May 1968. As This Performance Shows, The Band Was Ready To Record More Than A Year Earlier. The Disc Is Also Interesting In That It Chronicles A Lineup Of Quicksilver That Never Made It Into The Recording Studio, Featuring Singer/Harmonica Player Jim Murray, Who, If Anything, Comes Off As The Group's Frontman And Makes A Significant Contribution To Such Songs As "All Night Worker" And "Drivin Wheel (It's Been Too Long)." Murray Would Drop Out Of The Band Before The Recording Of The First Album, Never To Be Heard From Again. Also Sitting In On Some Numbers Is Dino Valenti, Who Was Slated To Be A Member Of Quicksilver At Its Inception Years Earlier, But Had To Bow Out Due To A Drug Bust. Here, He Is Brought On As Something Of A Special Guest, Singing Lead On The Last Three Songs Of The First Disc ("A Fool For You," "I Can't Believe It," And "Look Around") And, Apparently, On "Who Do You Love" At The End Of The Second Disc. As When He Joined Quicksilver Formally About Three Years After This Performance, Valenti's Influence (In Addition To His Distinctive Nasal Tenor Voice) Is To Contribute His Own Romantic Pop/Rock Compositions, Making The Band More Song-Oriented. Without Him, Their Repertoire Consists Of Folk Songs And Chicago Blues Covers Transformed By The Psychedelic Rock Arrangements That Spotlight Guitarist John Cipollina's Stinging Lead Work." - William Ruhlmann, AMG more

Appears Unplayed. “Without Question, This Follow-Up To Quicksilver Messenger Service's Self-Titled Debut Release Is The Most Accurate In Portraying The Band On Vinyl In The Same Light As The Group's Critically And Enthusiastically Acclaimed Live Performances. The Album Is Essentially Centered Around The Extended Reworkings Of Bo Diddley's "Who Do You Love?" And "Mona," As Well As The Lesser Lauded -- Yet No Less Intense -- Contribution Of Gary Duncan's (Guitar/Vocals) "Calvary." This Album Is The Last To Feature The Original Quartet Incarnation Of QMS. The Collective Efforts Of John Cipollina (Guitar/Vocals), Greg Elmore (Percussion), David Freiberg (Bass/Vocals), And The Aforementioned Duncan Retain The Uncanny Ability To Perform With A Psychedelic Looseness Of Spirit, Without Becoming Boring Or In The Least Bit Pretentious. The Side-Long Epic "Who Do You Love?" Suite Is Split Into An Ensemble Introduction And Coda As Well As Four Distinct Sections For The Respective Bandmembers. The Perpetually Inventive Chops Of QMS Are What Is Truly On Display Here. The Musicians' Unmitigated Instrumental Prowess And Practically Psychic Interaction Allow Them To Seamlessly Weave Into And Back Out Of The Main Theme. Yet All The While, Each Player Takes Center Stage For Uncompromising Solos. The Angst And Energy In Cipollina's Guitar Work And Line Upon Line Of Technical Phrasing Could Easily Be Considered The Equal Of A Frank Zappa Guitar Solo. The Brief Title Track, A Cover Of Roy Rogers And Dale Evans' "Happy Trails," Seems Almost Insignificant In The Wake Of Such Virtuoso Playing. It Clears The Sonic Palette And Also Bids Adieu To This Particular Fab Foursome Of Psychedelia.” Lindsay Planer, AMG. more

Solid Silver
New - LP - ST 11462
Sealed 1975 Original. No Promo Or Deletion Markings. “Solid Silver Is The Last Quicksilver Album To Fit Into The Group's Original Time Line — Although This Was Really A Reunion Rather Than An Actual Continuation Of Their Previous Work, Reestablishing However Briefly The Classic Core Lineup Of Dino Valente, John Cipollina, David Freiberg, Greg Elmore, And Gary Duncan. And The Results Are Impressive, Even At Times Glorious And Soaring, And Not Just On Valente's Compositions, Which Fill Six Of The Ten Slots On The Album. His Work Is As Good As Ever, And The Haunting "Cowboy On The Run" Was Practically Worth The Price Of The Album. But It's Gary Duncan's "Gypsy Lights" That Opens The Album On A Powerful Yet Lyrical (And Memorable) Note, And In More Of A Pop Vein Than Listeners Are Accustomed To From This Band; David Frieberg's "I Heard You Singing" Isn't Bad, Either, And Is A Lot Closer To The Band's Classic Sound. Most Of The Album Represents A Latter-Day Folk-Rock (Or Blues-Rock) Cum Acid Sound, Not Too Far Removed From The Virtuoso Levels Achieved Earlier In The Decade By The Jefferson Airplane, With The Members Fairly Playing Their Hearts Out Here Like It's As Urgent As Any Of Their Classic Late-'60s Recordings. But Perhaps That Also Explains The Album's Commercial Failure — Released In 1975, It Sounds As Though It's Caught In A Time Warp About Six Or Seven Years In The Past, Which For Some Listeners Was Exactly Where The Band And Its Sound Belonged.” – Bruce Eder, All Music Guide more
