Overview

With the return of Gary Duncan and the recording debut of founder Dino Valenti, Just for Love, Quicksilver's fourth album, marked their debut as the band they were intended to be. The ironic thing about that is that, led by singer/songwriter Valenti, they were a much more pop-oriented band than their fans had come to expect. On Just for Love, Quicksilver finally was Valenti's backup group (he wrote all but one of the songs), and while this gave them greater coherence and accessibility, as well as their only Top 50 single in "Fresh Air," it also made them less the boogie band they had been. And it meant the band's days were numbered.

This and QMS¿s follow up album "What About Me" was in my opinion is the pinnacle of psychedelic rock. When listening to this album it is easy to image being is a dimly lit apartment with a haze of sweet smoke filling the room and beads hanging from the ceiling and black-light posters on the wall and people laying/sitting on bean bag chairs half alive smoking from weird shape pipes. That being said, this music is not just for the drug-out counter culture dropouts but also for anyone who enjoys the various types of music that the late 1960 and early 1970. The music flows and the instrumentals of "Wolf Run", "Cobra" along with "Gone Again" allows the listener¿s mind to wander. Overall this is a great album one of the best from the psychedelic rock genre.
