|San Francisco's Shiver
San Francisco's Shiver played psychedelic rock like many other bands from San Francisco in the flower power era of the late
1960s/early 1970s, but what differentiated them was their sheer raw energy, making these acid rockers equally at home with
the Haight hippy set and greasy redneck bikers. Their only album, recorded on a two-track recorder in 1972 with no overdubs
and released in 2000, captures acid rock in its heyday, with crazed guitar solos, a wild rhythm section, and screamed vocals.
"Tough as Nails" and "Bone Shaker" are full-throttled aggressive assaults, while "Interstellar Vision," and the lengthy "Alpha Man"
slow things down slightly, creating a more psychedelic and space-rock-esque sound.
