Yes, I remember that free concert in Golden Gate Park in July 73. Also Elvin Bishop was there. And that very night Old And In The Way at Keystone Berkeley. I used my brothers ID to get in as I was only 19. Also another Bay Area great has passed ,Norton Buffalo on October 30th.Quicksilver had that strange reunion show Christmas time Dec. 75 at Winterland. The opening band blew them off the stage, Little Feat with lowell George.

to read about something else than directly Dead related, even though there's a relation through Mickey here. Anyway, I discovered Quicksilver just prior to the Dead, even though I already have owned Jerry Garcia - Reflections for a while before that. But I have always been a big fan of Quicksilver and some of my big moments in life happened during my visit to the Bay Area in Augusti-September of 1986, i.e. one of them happened at the infamous Ranch Rock '86 minifestival. At Ranch Rock '86 I got to see John Cipollina play in every band during the actual day. The rendition of Mona, with Problem Child was one of the highlights during my trip out west. Another was meeting John Cipollina at a gig with Fish & Chips at the Saloon (I think the tiny little bar was called) and getting a very personal autograph from him. Also a show with the Dinosaurs at the Wolfgang's club was memorable - also for a really nice smiling Merl Saunders (several photos taken by my amateur camera is evidence of this). On one of my old tapes there's a studio outtake with a band made up of John Cipollina and Mickey Hart, playing "Ghost Riders in the Sky" and a couple of other songs. Perhaps this Jim McPhearson is present there as well?? Micke Östlund, Växjö, Sweden PS! As great as Quicksilver were before Dino joined, I'm a big fan of Dino and the Quicksilver he and Gary Duncan led in the 70's. I really do enjoy Dino's singing with "Just For Love" and "Quicksilver" (1971) being among my alltime favourite Bay Area records. ------------------------------ My record collection: jazzmicke

I never been interested to a Dead related topic because they are very old artist but my father who really likes to play Jim Mcpherson's songs and sing along with it. Every time I get frustrated doing my homework help of research paper, my father would play Jim Mchperson's songs and try to cheer me up with his voice. Unfortunately, my father had never got a chance to see him live in a concert or event. How I wish I was already alive that year and find a way to get my father a chance to see Jim Mcpherson in person.
