Shady Grove by The Quicksilver Messenger Service (1969)

Kind of like: Quick-silver Hermes himself
Genres: Psychedelic, piano, rock-blues
Listen here: Mediafire

This band may be a stretch for this blog, but I think the music is fantastic and the pianist is the English nomad Nicky Hopkins, who plays with The Kinks, The Rolling Stones, and The Beatles. This is the only Quicksilver record I really enjoy, and its the only one Nicky plays and composes on. If you find yourself impartial to the album, at least give Edward, The Mad Shirt Grinder a listen and you shan't be regretting it.
