Quicksilver Messenger Service - Fresh Air (Winterland 1975)
"Fresh Air" is a 1970 song written by Jesse Oris Farrow, the nom de plume of Chester William "Chet" Powers, Jr., who also used the stage name of Dino Valenti. It was first recorded by the San Francisco-based band Quicksilver Messenger Service, which Valenti had recently rejoined. "Fresh Air" was the only single released from the album Just for Love.
The song was recorded as part of the sessions for the Just for Love album between May and June, 1970. Both this and the follow up album What About Me were recorded during the band's relocation to Hawaii. Matthew Gruenwald of Allmusic opined that the song featured some of John Cipollina's best guitar work.
