Editorial Reviews

With the return of Gary Duncan and the recording debut of founder Dino Valenti, Just for Love, Quicksilver's fourth album, marked their debut as the band they were intended to be. The ironic thing about that is that, led by singer/songwriter Valenti, they were a much more pop-oriented band than their fans had come to expect. On Just for Love, Quicksilver finally was Valenti's backup group (he wrote all but one of the songs), and while this gave them greater coherence and accessibility, as well as their only Top 50 single in "Fresh Air," it also made them less the boogie band they had been. And it meant the band's days were numbered. ~ William Ruhlmann, All Music Guide

With the long-awaited return of Dino Valente to the band as singer and songwriter, Quicksilver Messenger Service marked perhaps its finest hour during the recording of this particular album. Unfortunately, Mr. Valente had been absent during the recording of the band's previous two studio albums, "Quicksilver Messenger Service" and "Shady Grove", and during the band's live concert recording, namely, the album, "Happy Trails." Problems with the law and a failed attempt to make it happen musically in New York City alone and also with QMS colleague, guitarist Gary Duncan, drew him away from the band for an extended period of time. The added absence of Gary Duncan prompted the rest of the band to ask Nicky Hopkins to join them during the recording of their second studio album. Nicky Hopkins was one of rock history's preeminent pianists, having had contributed his talent to many memorable albums by top artists, ranging from the Rolling Stones to the Who. There is no exception here, with Quicksilver Messenger Service, as evident on this particular album, and on the previous studio album, especially on the song entitled, "Edward, the Mad Shirt Grinder."

The band at this stage of its history also included a gifted guitarist by the name of John Cipollina whose style was quite unique--John Cipollina oftentimes used the tremolo bar on his solid-body Gibson while playing solos and also while playing as a counterpoint to the guitar work of fellow band member, Gary Duncan. A wonderful aspect of the band at this particular point in time was the fact that two of its members were capable of playing "true" lead guitar at any one time. Unfortunately, shortly after the recording of this album, John Cipollina left the band. He eventually formed the band, Copperhead.

I grew up in the Bay Area in the late sixties so I became very familiar with the "San Francisco" bands of that time and I seemed to enjoy many of the bands that never had "tremendous success". Quicksilver falls into that category and I have to admit they were among many of the groups of that area and time that had to be experienced live to know what they were really like and to see them at their best. That's not to say that I don't like their studio material because I do. This album was a new direction for Quicksilver with Dino Valenti returning after doing some time for a drug bust. While this may not be their strongest album I would have to say it's worth buying for the song "Fresh Air" which became a sort of an anthem of that time. This album and the one that followed "What About Me" are essential to any Quicksilver fan that is serious about what this band was about and wants to experience the magic of the music of that time and place. Some other bands worth looking into to get the flavor of that era: Moby Grape, Cold Blood, It's a Beautiful Day, New Riders of the Purple Sage, Malo, Hot Tuna, Tower of Power, The Youngbloods, Blue Cheer, The Blues Image, Eric Burdon & the Animals, and Country Joe and the Fish. They just don't make 'em like that anymore sorry to say.

Certainly QMS represented the best of "Jam Rock" with their style of 2 guitar, point and counterpoint method of playing.Whether intentional or not they touched the very essence of classical music structure and connotation,which resulted in a musical conversation rather than merely a song.They gave a great effort on this album and it was well engineered

I thought the "classic lineup" of Quicksilver Messenger Service--John Cipollina, David Freiberg, Gary Duncan and Greg Elmore was fabulous.
The first album was a combination of five, tight, short cohesive songs that had great energy and terriffic musicianship;
and Gary Duncan and David Freiberg handled the vocals beautifully. The sixth song "The Fool" was a much longerl journey into acid rock c/o Freiberg with beautiful melodies and musical passages.
"Happy Trails" needs no introductions--one of the greatest live SF albums of all time, and closing out with Gary Duncan's trippy, imaginative "Calvary," and the quick version
of the Old West chestnut "Happy Trails."
I will stop right here and fast forward to "Just for Love." I really am surprised to see so many 4 & 5 star ratings for this album. I had looked forward to its release
ages ago (1970), and was pleased that Gary Duncan, a superb guitarist in his own right (despite the many accolades for John Cipollina), and possessed of a good voice, would be returning. Ahh...being as young as I was
all I knew about Dino Valenti was "Dino's Song." Only later did I learn that Duncan's return was a take it or leave it proposition, which meant Dino Valenti was part of the deal, or visa-versa.
In any case, I had no knowledge of the role Valenti had played in helping put the band together, but spending lots of time in the slammer for drug charges, he was unable to be part of it.
The first time I played the LP I was in shock--this album, despite a few bright spots, was a stinker compared to QMS' earlier releases (including "Shady Grove"). The pain started out with "Wolf Run-Part 1." What the hell
was the point of this self-indulgent wolf noise, written by "Jesse Orris Farrow?
