Overview

Live 1977

The scouring of the Quicksilver vaults continues with this very late in the day show, with only vocalist Dino Valente and guitarist Gary Duncan to remind us of the original band but, perhaps surprisingly, a solid lineup behind them to keep the cobwebs from forming. It's been knocking around on bootleg for a while and, as always with this series, the sound quality is not the best. But while it's difficult to shake the feeling that the album was sourced from a better-than-average audience tape, it stands head and shoulders above some of the earlier archive holdings. Plus, while it might be redundant to say that it includes marathon work-outs of "Mona" and "Who Do You Love," the 20 minutes that are devoted to those two chestbeaters more than compensate for any other failings this set may have. Two discs' strong, with the band's most recent LP (the now two-year-old Solid Silver represented by a three-song, mid-set interlude, the bulk of the show is locked firmly in what the band presumably believed were the glory days to come. "What About Me," from the album of the same name, and a couple of cuts from the same year's Just for Love are the only other solid-gold oldies in sight, which might be a drawback for fans of the classic 'silver material, but certainly not for admirers of the sound. Duncan's licks and Valenti's throat are in fine form throughout, and there are moments when you don't even notice the absence of the bandmates with whom they conquered the earth.
