I'd still give a slight edge to Jefferson Airplane's best LP's, but otherwise this is the cream of "San Fran Psych"!

... and don't forget Moby Grape's first 3 (not including "Grape Jam" as I've never heard it), even if their output was uncharacteristically more typical of an LA band than a San Francisco one (with tight compositions generally being favoured over legnthy improvisations)". I'd put QMS' "Maiden of the Cancer Moon" in any list of essential SF psych too, as I think it comes closer to capturing their live fire than the more vaunted "Happy Trails". Then there's Big Brother's "Cheap Thrills", Fifty Foot Hose's "Cauldron", "Live Dead" ... Far too many great albums were being released worldwide in the 67-69 timezone - had one been attempting to keep abreast of them at the time then it would probably have taken until the mid-70s to have caught up with them all.
