Dino Valenti was one of the most fascinating figures of the San Francisco 60s psychedelic scene. He was the frontman of the Quicksilver Messenger Service, and became famous with his hippie anthem Get Together, that has reached the USA top-ten, when played by the Youngbloods.
He made a solo album with Columbia, and recorded a lot of other material, that he has been storing in various warehouses in the late 60s. This record comes from some of these tapes, which were recently found and delivered to Valenti’s family.
They are of superb sound quality, and of even greater musical value – excellent never before issued gems, as well as his own version of Get Together presented for the first time here on vinyl. It is unknown, who else is performing in these tapes, although sound and great acid guitar in several tracks strongly remind of early QMS albums.
