GOLD -"Mission Rock" was recorded live in San Francisco 1971 (excellent soundquality) - music ranges in the early Quicksilver/ Santana/ Big Brother & The Holding Company style - (68 mins) unreleased material! Gold in 1971 was one of the hottest bands in S.F. still without an LP. Bill Graham was booking the band to open shows for Ten Years After, Big Brother and the Holding Company, Mike Bloomfield.... Now finally after 32 years here is the album Graham would have liked to hear. Country Joe McDonald took a personal interest in the band and worked with them on a number of projects - on this CD he wrote 2 of the 13 songs, The very talented guitarists Ed Scott and Joe Bajza compared often to a combination John Cipollina - Jeff Beck founded Gold in 1967/68. Gold vocalist on "Mission Rock" Robin Sinclair was of the same cut of female singer of the time in the style of a "Janis Joplin" - an experienced professional who had recorded two LP's on Cadet Concept/Chess as part of a group called "Saloom-Sinclair and the Mother Bear". The music itself is very powerful in front of rhythm section with congas, two acid jamming guitars and vocals a la Janis that make this CD to an absolute must for all Hippie and S.F. Sound fans. Contains bio, great photos and Underground S.F. posters.
