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: CREEDENCE CLEARWATER REVIVAL
Suzy Q (Upgraded)
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.

Subject: [tradedead] It Crawled Out Of The Vaults Of KSAN : 1966-1968I 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
