“Happy Trails” is the second album of the American band Quicksilver Messenger Service.
Happy Trails consists mainly of a performance cover of Bo Diddley’s – aka Ellas McDaniel – “Who Do You Love?” spread out over 25 minutes. The live portions of the album were recorded at the Fillmore East and at the Fillmore West.
Happy Trails captures the band’s trademark extended-jam style and electric guitar virtuosity on songs like “Who Do You Love?” and “Mona” that took fans on psychedelic aural trips when the band performed them live.
In 2003, the album was ranked number 189 on Rolling Stone Magazine’s list of The 500 Greatest Albums of All Time.
