It's the Two 'Great Society' 'San Francisco Sound' Albums! Music Lover: from San Francisco, CA US -- December, 14, 2008

Here is a real treasure of the pure 'San Francisco' sound of 1965-1966: two albums of original compositions by one of the great early psychedelic bands, 'The Great Society.' In 1965 they were featured in Longshoreman's Hall, Family Dog and Fillmore Auditorium light show concerts along with The Jefferson Airplane (Grace Slick was not a member then), The Grateful Dead and The Charlatans. Listening to these tracks we get real and deep insight into the philosophical leanings, lifestyle and musical innovation that characterized these and other bands and the core 'Haight Asbury' sensibility. After the band split up (when Darby Slick went to India), Grace joined the Jefferson Airplane, and Jerry Slick (her husband at the time) went to The Final Solution, both taking Great Society songs with them to those groups ('Someone to Love,' 'White Rabbit,' 'Grimly Forming,' and 'Father'). This is one of Nina's hidden treasures! It's not just a historical curiosity or footnote, it's great music! Buy copies for your friends!
