Repressing of this two CD live release from the Bay Area rockers. This recording finds the Quicksilver Messenger Service playing at the Carousel Ballroom in San Francisco. The Carousel was another of Bill Graham's venues and he would rename it the Fillmore West and run it until 1971. When this recording was made it was just a few weeks after the release of the self titled debut from Quicksilver Messenger Service. The second disc is the real pull for Quicksilver fans as it contains just the one track of the band doing what they do best and what sealed their reputation as a live band. The disc is taken up with the Jam a an extended piece which never outstays it's welcome but which underpins the band's musical inventiveness and dexterity. Voiceprint.
