JEFFERSON AIRPLANE/JEFFERSON STARSHIP/STARSHIP/HOT TUNA/SOLO & MORE: ALBUM BY ALBUM Fly Jefferson Airplane, gets you there on time. Welcome to the Jefferson family. It’s a big family with lots of artists and music and we’ll be going through almost all of it. From Jefferson Airplane, Jefferson Starship and Starship, to the The Great Society, Hot Tuna, Bodacious DF, and also Paul Kantner solo, Grace Slick solo, Marty Balin, solo, and Jorma Kaukonen solo. If somebody would like to comment on New Riders of the Purple Sage, SVT, Papa John Creach’s solo or Mickey Thomas’ solo stuff, (or anything else I missed) feel free, just try to keep it in chronological order. Maybe you only like the Airplane or only Jeff Starship or just Hot Tuna maybe you’ll stay for those segments, maybe fly to new lands as well, but hopefully there’s something for everybody and it won’t be too hard to juggle around the various airlines as we go chronological. Plus, I have a lot of it organized already. Well, it’s been 2 years since I made a thread, and I’ve only done two, the Love album-by-album thread and the Monterey Pop Festival Performance-by-Performance thread. I usually put a lot of time in these so I don’t do them often but it will be thorough. Side features, questions, album ranking, song ranking, vocal/writing breakdowns, lineup changes, lyric quotes, pics, videos…we’ll have some of everything. This is a major band of the counterculture, the 1960’s and overall and it’s not just because of 2 huge songs during the Summer of Love. With a unique lineup, tons of talent and being great live and in studio, the Airplane are memorable for a number of reasons. Though much of the material may sound ‘dated’ to some, there’s so much of it that is universal and transcends generations that ‘dated’ doesn’t really matter. Whether we take it as a music history lesson or go out listening to it in headphones on a beautiful day for current entertainment, it’s well worth the flight.
