Quicksilver Messenger Service's debut effort was a little more restrained and folky than some listeners had expected, given their reputation for stretching out in concert. While some prefer the mostly live Happy Trails, this self-titled collection is inarguably their strongest set of studio material, with the accent on melodic folk-rock. Highlights include their cover of folksinger Hamilton Camp's "Pride of Man," probably their best studio track; "Light Your Windows," probably the group's best original composition; and founding member Dino Valenti's "Dino's Song."

Almost Perfect

Reviewer: Michael Broer
I originally gave this disc a five star rating due to its superiority over the CD. However, after listening to an early pressing of this great debut album, I must downgrade it. This new pressing just doesn't have the clarity that the early pressing does. Even with the treble on my amp turned to the extreme, it sounds as though the control is back at the mid level.
