    Ask your doctor if lobotomy is for you.
    Here's a real rarity. Soundtrack album from a pretty hokey film called Revolution about hippies and drugs etc. A few QMS tunes before they signed a record contract. These songs can also be found on the Sons Of Mercury 2 CD collection.
    The album also features Mother Earth and Steve Miller.
    The very first song I ever worked on with a band in High School was the Quicksilver version of Babe I'm Going To Leave You from this album.

    One of my favorite obscure local bands during the psychedelic ballroom days was Country Weather. Their lead guitarist Greg Douglass had a style similar to John Cipollina, and in the early 70s formed Mistress with Cipollina and later spent time in Hot Tuna and the Steve Miller Band.

    There was a band called Wildflower that opened for everyone in the Summer of Love Era. They broke up in 1968 and never recorded a full album. They had a Byrds influence, but trippier. I saw them at a Teen Age Fair in Oakland in '67 and thought they were awesome.

    When I saw them open for the Dead a few years earlier, they were more of a country rock band. I talked to John McFee at a Doobie Brothers show a year or so ago. He told me that Clover was going to record a new album or at least rerecord some of the old songs.



    Peter Rowan's younger brothers. Opened for the Dead wearing electric shirts one time.

    Some guy by the name of Hendrix was hanging around San Fran in the early mid 60's playing coffee houses with the likes of Joplin & Kaukonen...
