HENRY KAISER Live At The Great American Music Hall (1990) - Unreleased

Henry Kaiser and friends live at San Francisco's Great American Music Hall, January 7th, 1990. An invigorated set featuring the great Glenn Phillips on guitar and pals Steve Kimock and Greg Gumble sitting in. This show was recorded while Kaiser and Phillips were in the process of making the album, Guitar Party, which would take nearly 13 years to get released. This show's set list closely resembles that disc's track list - which features covers from numerous Bay Area psych bands, including The Dead ("Dark Star"), Quicksilver Messenger Service ("Cobra"), Jefferson Airplane ("The Other Side Of This Life"), as well as Hendrix ("If 6 Were 9"), The Byrds ("If You're Gone") and Dylan ("Just Like Tom Thumb's Blues,""Won't You Please Crawl Out Your Window?"). Drummer Mark McQuade Crawford is especially animated in this rough and tumble set, highlighted by a 15 minute take on Neil Young's "Cortez The Killer," below.
