Liner Notes

John Cipollina - guitar, vocals; Gary Duncan - guitar, vocals; David Freiberg - bass, vocals; Greg Elmore - drums

This is Quicksilver's final performance of a three-night Winterland run. This night they were opening for local friends Jefferson Airplane.

It's New Years Eve 1967/68, and QMS is surrounded by friends and family both on the stage and off. It's obvious from the relaxed instrumental beginning that this will be a long, psychedelic night. With little or no thought of time constraints, almost all the material from the previous two nights is included again in this set. Strong improvisational versions of "Who Do You Love," "Smokestack Lightning" and another extended jam on "Gold and Silver" are highlights, as is the set closing "Mona," which travels to the outer regions of psychedelia and showcases John Cipollina and Gary Duncan's intertwining guitar work - essentially a preview of where they would head on their next album, Happy Trails.

Following sets by Quicksilver Messenger Service, Big Brother and the Holding Company, and Jefferson Airplane, a free form jam ensued, featuring members of all three bands - a memorable way to ring in the New Year, to say the least.
