Frumious Bandersnatch - Golden Sons Of Libra [The Studio Outtakes] (1968)

Originally from Lafayette/California they moved to San Francisco and picked up the typical sound of the city. I must confess that I'm not really into the music that "Big Brother & The Holding Company" or "Grateful Dead" did (although I respect their "Anhtems Of The Sun" and "Aoxomoxoa" albums). And now you know what's the deal here... long jammings with endless lead guitar interpretations. I think there are a lot of you out there who appreciate this record more than I do.

Tracklist:
- Hearts To Cry • alternate version
- Chain Reaction
- Pulpit Hough
- Cheshire • full-length version
- Woodrose syrup
- Can-A-Bliss • full-length version

Hello Buffalo.
I'm in the people who love this kind of San Francisco music with long and good guitar playing.It make me think at another band:GOLD. Grateful Dead is also for me a strange situation;I ordered last week the 9cds box of winterland 1973 and I'm sure I'll never open it.I missed a few years ago the selling of "complete Fillmore" a 10cds box who reach very hight prices now.Speculation?,no because I will not sell my last order certainly more a strange(stupid)collector attitude.

I don't care that you don't like the music - that's just honesty on your part. Thanks for posting it. But next time, post it on a service that doesn't jack the consumer around so much. This one tries to trick you into downloading some other weird-ass software. Rapidshare is about the worst of the bunch.
