Shiver - "San Francisco's Shiver" 1972

Recorded on an old two track, yet effective machine, "San Francisco's Shiver" is significantly heavier than anything popular of the time. A Hell's Angels party band, the often shared bills with the likes of Big Brother and the Holding Co. and Blue Cheer. And it was fitting considering their brand of heavy psych made The Seeds and Steppenwolf sound like Barbara Streisand. Shiver's work is that rare stuff you've heard about but never actually come across. This CD reissue of the recordings is a prime example of the chaos and energy that the band delivered live. Apower trio that puts most other power trios to shame. Including Grand Funk! Another two thumbs up on this one! Fucking brilliant!
