Old Cherokee Up The Saint John River

Two bootlegs from Quicksilver Messenger Service.

Quicksilver Messenger Service - Maiden Of The Cancer Moon

The first is my rip of a double vinyl album called 'Maiden Of The Cancer Moon' that I bought from Steve Burgess in the English Weather shop in Crouch End (aka Terrapin Trucking), recorded at the Fillmore East in June 1968. It's pretty damn good - and I love the way 'Who Do You love' starts off just like Happy Trails but then goes off in a totally different direction when the soloing starts.

01 - Back Door Man
02 - Codine
03 - Mona / Maiden Of The Cancer Moon / Mona
04 - Gold & Silver
05 - Smokestack Lightning
06 - Light Your Windows
07 - Dino's Song
08 - The Fool
09 - Who Do You Love
10 - Mona / Maiden Of The Cancer Moon / Mona

Quicksilver Messenger Service - Live at the Fillmore 1967

I don't know where I got these tracks from - maybe it was from Bit Torrent? Anyway they are nowhere near as good quality as the vinyl album but they're also a year and a half earlier, apparently recorded at the Fillmore West on 5th February 1967.

01 - Suzie Q
02 - I Hear You Knockin'
03 - Dandelion
04 - Gold And Silver
05 - You Don't Love Me
06 - Codeine
07 - Instrumental
08 - Smokestack Lightning
09 - Dino's Song
10 - Walking Blues
11 - Driving Wheel
12 - Babe, I'm Gonna Leave You
13 - Hey Mama
14 - Hoochie Coochie Man
15 - All Night Worker
16 - Stand By Me
17 - Pride Of Man

shame terrapin closed but maybe they stretched themselves thin by opening that shop out west on a corner where there was no parking so you could see the shop but not stop to browse,looking forward to this ta

i visited Terrapin trucking once. Not being familiar with that part of London or the tube map I walked miles! Not a bad walk on reflection, and well worth it when I got to the shop. They used to have some great tie-dyed t-shirts, as remember.
Thanks for these boots, I'm looking forward to hearing them.

Cheers.

Very interesting post but the bitrate encoding (128k) is too bad unfortunately and it would be better if you can repost (or at least in your forthcoming posts) use a 192k minimum bitrate, preferably 256k or 320k when possible. Thank you.

THIS "PSYCHO" DOUBLE-LP TREAT IS AMAZING AND QUITE RARE AND EXPENSIVE. I DO OWN THE VINYL AND I DO RECOMMENDED TO EVERYBODY AS IS THE BEST SOURCE TO HEAR THE BEST ACID QUITAR SOLOS BY ONE OF THE MOST INFLUENCIAL TWO-QUITAR BAND OF THE 60's.
THANKS FOR THE EFFORD. KEEP IT UP.
