Lost Gold and Silver....,
This review is from: Get Together (Audio CD)
OK if you're looking at this page then its pretty sure you're a fan of Dino's solo album or the Quicksilver Messenger Service, or more likely both, and want to know if this is worth buying. If that's the case then the answer is an emphatic 'Yes'. Recording info and dates are scant, but (apart from the oldie 'Get Together') these tracks would appear to have more in common with Just for Love / What About Me era Quicksilver than the 'Dino Valente' album.
The vast majority here are finished, polished,mostly electric, quality tracks - 'One Thousand Miles an Hour' in particular is worth the admission price alone - classic Dino, and up there with Fresh Air, Children of the Sun, Long haired Lady among his very best work. Plenty more to enjoy too - 13 glorious rambling minutes of 'County Fair', idiosyncratic versions of 'Silver dagger' and Smokey Robinsons 'Try Something New', and top quality Dino originals like 'Ain't that a shame' and 'Star rider'. 14 tracks, 68 minutes and only the short cover of 'Midnight rider' is less than essential. This really is buried treasure, posthumously exhumed from one of Dino's forgotten storage units. At a stroke, this must add 50% to his total recorded works. It won't be for everyone, but if you love the Quicksilver albums mentioned, or his classic solo album, then don't hesitate snapping this up while its around. You'll find it better than you thought possible.
