A very rare recording of the much-beloved but rarely-heard sixties Renaissance Faire band the Golden Toad at the 1968 Berkeley Folk Music Festival. That’s MC Sam Hinton interacting with the band a bit. Members included Bob Thomas, Will Spires, Don Brown, Rob Patterson, and Lisa Phillips. For more see Rachel Lee Rubin’s book Well Met: Renaissance Faires and the American Counterculture and Corry Arnold’s Hooterollin’ Around blog entry about a 19 February 1969 appearance at the Fillmore West with the Grateful Dead.
