..it satisfies my need for long tracks.

I still have it, but never listen, on vinyl.  Those were the days

    Indeed.

    On a different tack, I was reading all the Youtube comments on the album and a lot of them were from people who were there at the time, and used to hang out with the group or play with them at jam sessions or whatever, and they were talking about the great venues they had in SF at the time.  From out of the blue, it just dawned on me that today's kids won't have a clue what it's like to walk into a hot, sticky theatre where the air is so thick with the smell of dope that after about an hour you are stoned whether you've been smoking or not.

    Sunday afternoons at the Roundhouse were fun.

    I'm sure Man must have listened to Quicksilver, there's a lot of their sound in those extended melodic jams.

    Let's hear it for Jesus (not that one, the other one) Planet Power, jacket potatoes with beans and three bands you'd never heard of every week. Some would stick, some not. And then (for me) walking back to home in Little Venice via Primrose Hill and past Lords Cricket Ground.

    The Roundhouse was a good venue for getting stoned but a bugger of a journey back to Deptford at midnight on Sunday (stoned....).

    But I don't care if I never have to listen to Ginger Johnson's African drummers again.  EVER.

    Still got those albums but listen to the CD versions now - 'Untitled' has been expanded, brilliant.
    I was at the Roundhouse a few Sunday afternoons too. Ah me.....the crack of plastic glasses underfoot.
    Cipollina was featured on a Man live LP - 'Maximum Darkness'.
    The Copperhead album is good too, though not like the 1st 2 QMS LPs.
    He was a great and unique stylist but not a leader or prolific writer so he is overlooked, if not forgotten.
    But....what a sound.......

    Great thread, thanks for the memories!! :)

    Wow, the Roundhouse!  I saw The Crazy World of Arthur Brown there, must have been late 1967, just before "Fire". 

    As I recall, he fell off the stage and got taken to hospital, and Vincent Crane and Drachen Theaker just carried on without him...

    Grown most uncommonly fat!

    Wow, never knew that, will check it out. Man had a more guitar saturated sound than QMS (at least on the lp’s I know) but there’s a real similarity there.
