The group can be looked at as one that might have received national recognition with a few breaks or as a local act that attracted greater notice because of the semi-famous names who played in it at one time or another, starting with Cipollinaa founding member of Quicksilver Messenger Serviceand including pianist Nicky Hopkins and drummer Greg Elmorealso of Quicksilveras well as Greg Douglass and Lonnie Turner.
Over the years, the group released several albums, mostly on tiny European labels, but it never really got out of the Bay Area, and the importance of Cipollina can be estimated by noting that the band broke up after his death in InDolan assembled Silverado Trailan album of previously unreleased tracks, and Return to Silveradocompiled by San Francisco rock experts Mike Somavilla and Mick Skidmore for the Acadia imprint of the British Evangeline label, is a vastly expanded version of that track collection.
Somavilla and Skidmore have added three songs to the Silverado Trail material, plus an entire CD's worth of live recordings, resulting in a track, two-disc set running nearly two hours and 20 minutes.
Drawn from six different lineups, with Dolan and Cipollina the only constants, the undated tracks show a consistency in terms of performance if not sound quality ; this is a cohesive bar band that knows how to jam on country-rock and blues-rock. The weakness of the group actually lies with its frontman.
Dolan has a gruff voice and an enthusiastic manner, but his songs never seem Disperato, Erotico, Stomp - Lucio Dalla - Lucio Dalla Collection be much more than vehicles for the soloing.
Often, as on "Silverado Trail" and one of his better-known songs, "Inlaws and Outlaws," he seems to have composed while thinking of Bob Dylan 's "All Along the Watchtower," and the arrangements often are reminiscent of a better-known act that was around at the same time, Dire Straits. The live disc gives a good sense of the band's live work, with covers of such bar band favorites as "I Put a Spell on You" and "Train Kept a Rollin'," plus an extended group instrumental, "Spontaneous Combustion.
