Product Description:

Audio Remasterer: Stan Lewerke.
Liner Note Authors: Ralph J. Gleason; Richie Unterberger.
Photographer: Ray Avery.
A mishmash of hits and rarities of mid-'60s San Franciscan rock, recorded for the Autumn label. The Beau Brummels are heavily represented (including their hit "Laugh Laugh"); there are both sides of the single by Grace Slick's first band, the Great Society, including the first version of "Somebody to Love"; there's dance-soul by Bobby Freeman; and there are marginal garage pop tunes by the Tikis, Knight Riders, and Mojo Men. Some of this is good, even great music, but all of it's available on numerous better compilations of the '80s and '90s (the best of which is Rhino's Nuggets Vol. 7: Early San Francisco). San Francisco Roots was also issued in the '70s on the JAS label.
