"Quill" by Quill (1970)
Quill  "Quill"  1970 (USA)
Quill was an obscure jazzoid psychedelic early progressive-ish sort of band -- they may be tough to classify, but records such as this one were only made during the late 1960's and early 1970's!  Their most notable claim to fame is that they opened the second day of the Woodstock festival 40 years ago this month.  And also that they were hairy bearded freaks with weird stage names like "Ju-unk Kohl" and "Red Rocket Rogers" who sang songs with titles like "Thumbnail Screwdriver" and "The Tube Exuding"!  This is the only album the group made, in fact they seem to have broken up almost as soon as it was released about 6 months after their Woodstock appearance.
Though Quill's Saturday Woodstock performance was filmed, a technical problem rendered the sound unusable and thus it was not used in the movie (and has never been released as far as I know -- supposedly Quill also appeared on local Boston TV, but I haven't been able to find any of that footage either.)  So instead, here's some other clips from Woodstock:  Santana also played on Saturday afternoon, and their "Soul Sacrifice" is one of my favorite numbers in the film.  The Jefferson Airplane were the scheduled headliner on Saturday, though they didn't actually start playing until after the sun came up on Sunday morning;  here's their version of "Saturday Afternoon".  The Grateful Dead also played on Saturday, though various technical problems also kept their set from being used in the famous documentary film -- but here's some unreleased footage of The Grateful Dead at Woodstock.
