4.0 out of 5 stars San Fran Sound At It's Best!, December 9, 2004
This review is from: Mad River (Audio CD)
First off, I need to mention that this import CD on Edsel was dubbed from a vinyl copy of Mad River's debut LP released on Capitol in 1968. It was NOT transferred and remastered from the original analog master tapes. That said, the CD may not appeal to 60's music purists or collectors such as myself. You may as well purchase a sealed Capitol reissue on vinyl and then import, enhance and burn a copy on CD yourself. This LP is up there with Quicksilver Messenger Service, The Frumious Bandersnatch and Moby Grape for some classic San Fran acid guitar work. "Eastern Light" alone is worth the price of admission, although I like their EP version, "A Gazelle" much better than this LP version, "Amphetamine Gazelle". The EP version can be inexpensively obtained by purchasing The Berkeley EP's that was issued on CD in 1995 on the UK Big Beat label.
