Song Review by

Quicksilver Messenger Service's lone national hit, "Fresh Air" was brought to the band by the recently returned-from-exile founder, Dino Valenti. A strong, Santana-esque rocker, it's easily on par with any of that band's many early classics. Aside from Valenti's rock posturing, it's also home to some of John Cipollina's finest guitar work.
