Quicksilver, Van Morrison, Brinsley Schwarz: Fillmore East, New York NY

Ian Dove, Billboard, 18 April 1970

BRINSLEY SCHWARZ is an unknown British group that aroused interest because over 100 U.K. journalists braved a 12-hour trouble beset trip from London to spend the night of April 4 at the Fillmore just to see the quartet. In fairness to the group, signed to Liberty in the U.K. it is a guitar-organ group that performs tightly and politely but without making it seem worth the trip.
