Quicksilver Messenger ServiceHappy Trails ... LP
Capitol, Late 60s. Very Good+ ... $14.99
A perfect example of the jamming style of Quicksilver Messenger Service at their best – as side one features a 25 minute extrapolation of Bo Diddley's "Who Do You Love", stretched out by the group into these wicked long guitar lines and pulsating rhythms that shift nicely over time! Bo's a surprising inspiration for a group that's better known for their psych output – but their use of that track, and his "Mona", on the live recordings here really helps carve a link out of two different generations of guitar innovation – and suddenly helps us understand links between them both. The set continues with some great original numbers – the very long "Calvary", plus "Maiden Of The Cancer Moon" – as well as a cover of "Happy Trails". LP, Vinyl record album
(70s red label pressing. Cover has light surface wear and a partially split spine.)

✨✧ VariousLenny Kaye Presents Lightning Striking ... CD
Ace (UK), Late 50s/1960s/1970s/1980s/Early 90s. New Copy 2CD ... Just Sold Out!
Lightning strikes more than once when it comes to the magic of rock and roll – but it leaves behind a different sort of spark every single time – as you'll hear in this collection of work put together by Lenny Kaye, who associates key scenes and key moments that helped the music surge forward over the decades! Kaye picks select cuts from Memphis, San Francisco, Detroit, and other cities – and serves up a massive double-length package of tracks that step easily between genres, and which provide the perfect playlist to his well-penned volume of the same name. Given that Lenny was the guy to give us the legendary Nuggets series back in the day, it's clear he definitely knows what he's talking about – and you'll certainly feel that way after reading the very detailed notes in the set! 48 tracks in all – with titles that include "I'm So Happy" by Danny Cobb, "Marcella" by The Castelles, "Tiger" by Fabian, "Stupidity" by The Undertakers, "Pride Of Man (demo)" by Quicksilver Messenger Service, "Coo Coo" by Big Brother & The Holding Company, Crazy Like A Fox" by Link Cromwellchs, "Looking At You" by MC5, "Cavern Stomp" by The Big Three, "I Hear A New World" by Joe Meek, "Once I Had A Love (1975 version)" by Blondie, "Down At The Rock & Roll Club (alt)" by Richard Hell & The Voidoids, "Leavin Here (version 1)" by The Rationals, and "Gimme Chocolate" by Baby Metal.

✨✧ Jefferson AirplaneThirty Seconds Over Winterland ... LP
Grunt, 1973. Near Mint- ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The late live album from Jefferson Airplane – who were at the end of their journey, but whatever their personal differences may have been at the time, they still put on a helluva great rock and roll show! Thirty Seconds Over Winterland was recorded at that legendary San Francisco venue, and at Chicago's Auditorium Theatre, with the post-Marty Balin line-up of Grace Slick, Paul Kanter, Jack Casady and Jorma Kaukomen – plus violinist Papa John Creach, drummer John Barbata and vocalist David Freiberg from Quicksilver Messenger Service. Titles include "Have You Seen The Saucers", "Feel So Good", "Crown Of Creation", "When The Earth Moves Again", "Milk Train", "Trial By Fire" and "Twilight Double Leader". LP, Vinyl record album
(Original pressing. Includes the printed inner sleeve. Cover has some ring and edge wear, a cutout notch, and some light splash stains in front.)

✨✧ Paul Kantner, Grace Slick, & David FreibergBaron Von Tollbooth & The Chrome Nun ... LP
Grunt, 1973. Near Mint- ... Out Of Stock
A classic set from that second chapter on the California scene – that moment when the big initial wave of successful groups had rose and broke, leaving behind all sorts of new creative partnerships! This set's a great example of one of those – as Jefferson Airplane members Paul Kantner and Grace Slick come together with David Freiberg of Quicksilver Messenger Service – then open the door to a whole host of guests who really help make the whole thing an all-star Bay Area affair! You can definitely hear some echoes of Quicksilver, especially some of the more down to earth modes of the later records by that group – which fit perfectly with the vocals – and the lineup features work by Jerry Garcia on guitar on most tracks, plus Mickey Hart on percussion, Papa John Creach on violin, Jorma Kaukonen on guitar, Jack Casady on bass, The Pointer Sisters on backup vocals, and even David Crosby on guest vocals on one track. Titles include "White Boy", "Fishman", "Sketches Of China", "Ballad Of The Chrome Nun", "Flowers Of The Night", and "Across The Board". LP, Vinyl record album
(Original pressing. Includes the printed inner sleeve and lyric insert. Cover has light wear.)
