First LP Outtakes (CD)
Quicksilver Messenger Service are a legendary ensemble, an American psychedelic rock band, formed in 1965 in San Francisco and is together with Jefferson Starship and The Grateful Dead - considered one of the leading acts on the city's psychedelic scene in the mid-to-late 1960s. Quicksilver Messenger Service gained wide popularity in the Bay Area and, through their recordings, with psychedelic rock enthusiasts around the globe and several of their albums ranked in the Top 30 of the Billboard Pop charts. Although not as commercially successful as contemporaries Jefferson Airplane and The Grateful Dead, QMS was integral to the beginnings of their genre. With their jazz and classical influences, as well as a strong folk background, the band attempted to create a sound that was individual and innovative. Member Dino Valenti drew heavily on musical influences he picked up during the folk revival of his formative musical years. The style he developed from these sources is evident in Quicksilver Messenger Service's swung rhythms and twanging guitar sounds. This is a selection of studio outtakes from Quicksilver Messenger Service during the recording of their first album in 1968. The first album was noted for its instrumental passages (most notably in "Gold and Silver" and "The Fool"), the album displayed the group's jam sound amidst lighter pop-oriented songs. Unlike contemporaries such as the Grateful Dead, Quicksilver's jams were highly planned as can be heard by comparing the studio versions of songs with those from bootleg live performances.
