This CD contains two parts of S.F. underground history with the first Gold line-up feat. lead singer Richard Coco. Their 45 record "No Parking" was already reissued on LP by Rockadelic and on the CD compilation "Nuggets from the Golden State". Part 1 are the studio sessions of Leo Kulka´s Golden State Recorders, 9 heavy guitar cuts (same as Rockadelic LP) with great congas and bizarre Rock´n Roll vocals and the previously unreissued 45-rpm flipside "Summertime", produced by Country Joe McDonald.
Part 2 is a live set at the Fillmore-West audition, a qualification gig for Bill Grahams club circuit, which was successful. Shows at Winterland and Fillmore-West followed. These 42 minutes reach the highest level of power and a unique kind of heavy acid rock sound (especially the 6 min. killer version of "No Parking"). Ed Scott´s hypnotic rhythm guitar, a mind blowing bass and drums create an outstanding and surrounding flow, Joe Bajza´s soaring solo guitar played in a kind of aggressive Cipollina / Jeff Beck style is brilliantly intense and brings true Sixties S.F. Hell´s Angels party feeling to your home.
Very detailed 12 page color booklet is included those 78 minutes of hot music which reflect the golden sprit of the late 60s early 70s in San Francisco. Highly recommended, these are the roots! Tracks:
