These are recordings from the heyday of Underground Radio in San Francisco. This set includes 82 tracks on 6 CDs (most are 80 minute CDs), featuring many live performances, primarily produced and broadcast by radio station KSAN FM. Many of the most popular (and a few lesser known) musicians are represented during the key three years when Bay Area psychadelic music was peaking; from 1966 to 1968. The majority of these recordings came from the Avalon Ballroom and the Fillmore Auditorium, where KSAN often recorded sets and created production reels for local FM transmission. Since the production reels primarily featured edited highlights, theres a consistantly high caliber of performances documented here.
This collection is not, I repeat not, a duplication of the excellent "San Franciscan Nights" compilation. Duplicating that material was, as much as possible, intentionally avoided. However, there are some exceptions. 9 of the 82 tracks in this collection were also included on the SFN compilation. These 9 tracks were repeated here because they were either in different or more complete form, as per KSAN production reels, and/or were of improved quality. Here are those details:
CD#2: COUNTRY JOE & THE FISH: Thought Dream (now part of an expanded Avalon set)
CD#4: CAPTAIN BEEFHEART & THE MAGIC BAND Old Folks Boogie (now part of expanded Avalon set - was mistitled on SFN as "Woe Is Uh Me Bop"
CD#4: BIG BROTHER & THE HOLDING COMPANY Bye Bye Baby, Women Is Losers, Call On Me, Ball & Chain (1st 3 are Avalon 67, not 68 as notated on SFN. Upgraded.)
CD#5 SANTANA Treat->drums->Jingo (Upgraded. These were the two Santana tracks not listed on the SFN tracklists.)
Other than those 9 exceptions, the 82 tracks on these CDs are all different recordings than "San Franciscan Nights"
Theres a surprisingly strong continuity when listening to all these bands together. The only set questioned was the Bo Diddley set. It was decided to include this because unlike many/most of his contemporaries, he wasn't just regurgitating his hits by the mid-1960s. Check out the spacey modal jamming on "Eastern Thang," and the approach of his band and you'll hear how well it fits. (He even has an electric violinist on this 1966 Avalon Ballroom set! If anyone knows or has recollections who backed him around this time, we'd all enjoy hearing about it.)
Although the majority of these recordings came from KSAN production reels, several related non-KSAN recordings are also included.
Thanks to Harvey Lubar and the distribution people of San Franciscan Nights. All the people that helped spread that collection around for free directly inspired the start of this project. _______________________________________________________

I offered this awesome new KSAN anthology up on a few other lists and think there might be some interest here too, even though most of you probably have some or all of the Dead portion. I'm also looking for two Dead shows: 12/11/69 Thelma Theatre SBD and 8/18/70 AUD with known geneology. And a shot in the dark--if anyone here happens to have an A&M Records advance copy of an album called Silver Bell by Patty Griffin, I'm trying to find a copy of this unreleased album. It's all around in MP3 form but I'd like a clone of the actual advance CD. The album was cancelled and the label dropped her, but not before advance review copies went out, so I know its around. Anyone? Will also do a KSAN set B&P for someone who will offer it back up to the list. Otherwise, open to trading, so send a list if interested. Stu

Donovan Leitch Mickie Most
Info by wiki: After the introspection of fatherhood and family life contained in the songs of H.M.S. Donovan, Donovan turned his attention to popular music again in 1972. It had been three years since "Atlantis" entered the top 10. Since that time, Donovan had released a mildly successful album with band Open Road and a solo children's album that failed to make the charts in the UK and did not even see a release in the US.
In hopes of fomenting success, Donovan brought in Mickie Most to share the producer duties on his next album. The Cosmic Wheels sessions were recorded in Morgan Studios in London, England. In the UK at that time, glam rock ruled the top of the charts, defined by bands and artists such as T. Rex, Alice Cooper, and David Bowie among others. Several of these bands and artists claimed Donovan as a key influence in their music. This praise coupled with the chart success of the genre likely had great influence on the musical direction Cosmic Wheels would take.
While Donovan was recording Cosmic Wheels, Alice Cooper was recording their 1973 album Billion Dollar Babies in the same studio. Alice Cooper guitarist Michael Owen Bruce suggested asking Donovan to sing co-lead on the title track with Vincent Damon Furnier (who later took the name Alice Cooper for himself). Donovan agreed, and the resulting song helped propel Billion Dollar Babies to #1 in the US.
Cosmic Wheels reached the top 20 in both the US and UK, enjoying the same chart success as many of Donovan's previous albums. By 1973 the music business had shifted to promoting album-oriented rock, relegating singles to less promotion and fewer sales. An edited form of "I Like You" reached #66 in the U.S. and became the last charting single Donovan would have.
Donovan was inspired by the C. Flammarion-Woodcut > Univers (Paris 1888)

This concert is palyed accoustic, no electric guitar and studio effects, like on the official released album "Cosmic Wheels", maybe more better versions of songs on this bootleg, taken on the Cosmic Wheels Tour 1973. A bit more Psychedelic folk here, caused by Donovan peaceful and ekstatic voice, on the official album you find more Acid tasting Psychedelic Rock.
