This episode Christian has the pleasure of meeting the lovely ladies of Ace of Cups current members, Mary Ellen Simpson, Denise Kaufman, Mary Gannon and Diane Vitalich for a rousing discussion of the San Francisco music scene of the 1960’s and today. From 1967 to 1972, the Ace of Cups were at the epicenter of the ‘60s cultural and social revolution. From the Acid Tests to the protests, from the free concerts in Golden Gate Park to the ballrooms of San Francisco, they shared stages with everyone from The Band to the Grateful Dead, and were chosen to open for Jimi Hendrix the week after his groundbreaking performance at The Monterey Pop Festival. Despite eliciting music industry interest for their exceptional songs, sublime harmonies and exuberant live performances, the Ace of Cups never got the chance to make a record until 2018. The first studio release by the original all-female rock band of the late ‘60s San Francisco scene is now available, featuring contributions from Bob Weir (Grateful Dead, Dead & Company), Jorma Kaukonen and Jack Casady (Jefferson Airplane, Hot Tuna), Taj Mahal, Buffy Sainte-Marie, Peter Coyote, and many more. https://www.aceofcups.com
