Product Description:

Quicksilver Messenger Service: Gary Duncan, John Cipollina (guitar); David Freiberg (bass); Greg Filmore (drums).
Producers: Nick Gravanites, Harvey Brooks, Pete Welding.
It may have lacked the longevity of peers like the Grateful Dead and Santana, but Quicksilver Messenger Service was one of the finest bands to come out the Bay Area's improvisatory acid rock scene in the '60s. The twin guitars of John Cippolina and Gary Duncan made for the kind of spontaneous sonic dreamscapes that marked the finer examples of the genre. Like that of its San Francisco brethren, the band's early repertoire consisted largely of long pieces with extended instrumental passages, allowing for plenty of interplay between the musicians. The 12-minute jamfest "The Fool" is a good example of this seminal group's dynamic energy as captured on this debut album.
