Quicksilver Messenger Service “Happy Trails Live 1969″ bootleg CD 2012

Quicksilver Messenger Service “Happy Trails Live 1969″  CD 2012
A very special vintage concert performance by one of the most critically acclaimed bands to come out of the San Francisco 60s psychedelic rock movement, Quicksilver Messenger Service! Features the classic line-up performing their entire second album, Happy Trails - ranked at #189 on Rolling Stone s list of the 500 Greatest Albums Of All Time!.......

What looks like a pretty exciting release is actually just a re-packaging of Quicksilver Messenger Service's 2nd album "Happy Trail" (1968). Just compare the track listing and the timings between the two: they are pretty identical.

How Purple Pyramid Records (a subsidy of Cleopatra Records) can get away with this obvious rip-off is beyond me, especially since BGO records (UK) just released a remastered "Happy Trails" in 2010.

Purple Pyramid's "shiny" new cover art is kinda interesting, but that's about it. I wouldn't be the least bit surprised if Capitol Records ends up suing the pants off of Purple Pyramid for copyright infringement.

As far as the music, this is prime Quicksilver Messenger Service. Live, improvisational and spontaneous. If you don't already have this in your QMS collection, this one is a must. The sound is exceptional with good stereo separation. Hard to believe this is even a live recording at all.....By Everett Sandoval....................
