Quicksilver Does A Quickchange

Lenny Kaye, Circus, March 1970

ON THE NEW Year's Eve separating 1968 and its successor, the Quicksilver Messenger Service played a farewell concert at Fillmore West. Looking back at the occasion, it now seems as if it was not so much a goodbye as a hello, a recognition that the heavy hand of change was upon them and all they could do was blindly follow along in its wake. By the time half the new year had passed, the process seemed to he well on its way.
