"... by far some of the greatest, yet underrated music in the classic rock catalogue."
- Sputnikmusic

"... incredibly, their formula works. They have a good, even, remarkably honest sound. Theirs is a much finer record debut than the Grateful Dead's ..."
- Rolling Stone

The debut self-titled album from psychedelic rockers Quicksilver Messenger Service, released in 1968, put the San Francisco band on the map alongside contemporaries the Grateful Dead and Jefferson Airplane. The album includes Dino's Song written by founding member Dino Valenti who was unable to record with the band due to his incarceration on marijuana charges.

"Jim Murray and David Freiberg came up with the name. Me and Freiberg were born on the same day and Gary and Greg were born on the same day, we were all Virgos and Murray was a Gemini. And Virgos and Geminis are all ruled by the planet Mercury. Another name for Mercury is Quicksilver. And then, Quicksilver is the messenger of the Gods and Virgo is the servant, so Freiberg says 'Oh, Quicksilver Messenger Service.'"
- John Cipollina, guitarist

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
