||Who would have known this was the last show?|
The last show of the old airplane, what a pleasure this recording is. Grace Slicks voice chimes during a great "Somebody to Love".
By sgl1117 (West Milford, N.J.)
Mixed feelings about this. The newer songs from Bark & Long John Silver are great, but the older songs sound tired, like the band is just going through the motions to get the tour over.

|Crown of Creation CD (1968)
Last Flight album for sale Originally released on RCA Victor (4058). Includes liner notes by Jeff Tamarkin.
This newly remastered 2003 deluxe edition contains bonus tracks.
Originally released on RCA Victor (4058). Includes liner notes by Jeff Tamarkin and Bill Thompson.
CROWN OF CREATION is a rich and varied collection showing off the different talents of the main songwriters. Among the many memorable moments are Grace Slick's beautiful vocal on "Lather," the band's sensitive cover version of David Crosby's "Triad," and Jorma Kaukonen's stunning wah-wah solo on "If You Feel." Add to this the intense lyrics (such as the drug-themed "Greasy Heart"), Marty Balin and Paul Kantner's consistently strong vocals throughout, and Jack Casady's remarkable dexterity on bass. This is most certainly the Airplane's REVOLVER.
The bonus tracks Ribumbabap Rubadubaoumoum; Would You Like a Snack; Share a Little Joke (single version), and the unreleased and suitably bizarre The Saga of Sydney Spacepig join the rest of this 1968 album.

|Volunteers CD (1969)
Last Flight buy CD music This album made the Airplane's relations with the then ultra-conservative RCA a little tense. The label knew they had potentially one of America's biggest bands on their hands, and were compelled to let them use the "F" word--unprecedented on a major-label release at the time-- on "We Can Be Together." A more substantive sticking point, though, was the group's left-of-center political stance at that time, as expressed on the exhilarating call-to-arms title tune. VOLUNTEERS found the airplane at the vanguard of the burgeoning protest movement as realized in music, and "We Can Be Together" is more of a rallying cry than an invitation to a love-in. Even the Crosby-Stills-Kantner science fiction fantasy "Wooden Ships" is post-apocalyptic rather than dreamily fanciful. "Eskimo Blue Day" and "Good Shepherd" are additional high points, as is the blatant sexuality of "Hey Frederick" where Grace Slick sings "either go away or go all the way in."
We Can Be Together; Hey Frederick; Eskimo Blue Day , and the rest of this 1969 classic are joined by five unreleased live tracks from the Airplane's Nov.28-29, 1969 gigs at the Fillmore East, including Good Shepherd; Somebody to Love; Plastic Fantastic Lover; Wooden Ships , and Volunteers .

Just Roll Tape CD (2007)
Last Flight songs In fact, the whole night seems designed by the infamously raw producer David Briggs: tracks are brisk, mistakes are kept, the sound is rough, and every song sounds like a first take. And what a string of first takes: "So Begins the Task"--later released on MANASSAS--anticipates the finger-picked bleakness of DEJA VU's "4 & 20"; "Suite: Judy Blue Eyes" finds particular starkness as a solo song despite the jubilant open chords; and "The Doctor Will See You Now" holds its own against anything in Young's catalog. While his songwriting and guitar playing are stellar, Stills's voice is equally stunning, with its tender, affecting rasp making an AM weeper like "Helplessly Hoping" sound tough. A rough gem of a listen, but a must-have for any fans of Stills or of Crosby, Stills & Nash.
Over the years since Neil Young's godlike status has grown, it is easy to forget about the jaw-dropping breadth of talent that was Crosby, Stills & Nash, his sometimes former bandmates. Crosby had the silken voice and Nash the impossibly high harmony, but, as the remarkable official bootleg JUST ROLL TAPE: April 26th 1968 proves, Stephen Stills was a complete talent as a singer, writer, and guitarist. Reportedly recorded in one long take after he bribed the engineer of a Judy Collins session on the title date to continue recording long into the night, JUST ROLL TAPE is what its title suggests: a roll of inspired performances of songs from Still's embryonic catalog just before Crosby and Nash's angelic voices stormed the pop charts with him.
Personnel: Stephen Stills (dobro).
|Bless Its Pointed Little Head CD (1969) Top Seller
Last Flight CD music These 1968 live recordings from the Filmore East and West are the definitive live document of San Francisco's premier psychedelic group. 1968 was prime time for the Airplane, as the instrumental interplay between Kantner, Casady and Kaukonen had really begun to gel. So too had the interaction between lead vocalists Grace Slick and Marty Balin reached near-telepathic heights, and it can all be heard here. From the mind-melting proto-acid-rock of "Somebody to Love" to ribald, bluesy brashness of "Plastic Fantastic Lover," this is the Airplane in full flight. POINTED HEAD also makes it plain that the early Airplane had a special way with cover tunes. Folk god Fred Neil's "Other Side of This Life" gets a furiously rocking revision, and Donovan's "Fat Angel" is stretched out to encompass some wonderfully trippy jamming. BLESS ITS POINTED LITTLE HEAD is a candid but flattering photo of this seminal American band.
The album that showed the uninitiated just how astonishing this band was live is hereby reissued with performances of Today; Won't You Try/Saturday Afternoon , and Watch Her Ride that were intended for the original release but were left off due to the time constraints of vinyl!

|Sweeping Up the Spotlight: Jefferson Airplane Live at the Fillmore East 1969 CD (2007)
Last Flight buy CD music Jefferson Airplane were less focused in 1969 than they had been in the Summer of Love two years before. Recorded at the Fillmore East, these performances find the Airplane coming off their most recent album, Volunteers, released a month earlier, with the band a lot looser (drug use aside) and fractured. The factions in the group were presenting themselves during performances, and this set is no exception. Guitarist Jorma Kaukonen and bassist Jack Cassidy connected and jammed like they would have been just as content without the vocals getting in the way, Grace Slick and Paul Kantner combined their voices and played off each other, while Marty Balin screamed and crammed lyrics together, leaving little space for anyone else. During this era, harmonizing seemed out of the question, especially when the older tracks, like "Plastic Fantastic Lover," were being played at warp speed. Slick and Balin mainly yell over each other, a combination of clashing personalities and competition with the sheer volume of the instruments. In the era of Cream and Hendrix, the Airplane had become entwined with jazz-influenced improvisation and the distorted, electric end of the blues; the softer, folkie side of the band was nowhere to be found. For what the Airplane were doing at the time, there's no doubt that this was exciting and adventurous music, albeit without the intimate yin to the blazing yang. Collectors will want to pick up this set, at the very least, for the inclusion of the rarely heard "Uncle Sam Blues," "You Wear Your Dresses Too Short," and "Come Back Baby." ~ Al Campbell
Previously unissued 1969 live performance from the West Coast legends, released to coincide with the 40th Anniversary of the 'Summer Of Love'. Jefferson Airplane were one of the bands at the center of this defining era of music and are still held in great esteem by fans and music critics (all of whom would rather forget Starship). Recorded live at Bill Graham's Fillmore East, Sweeping Up The Spotlight features 12 tracks including 'White Rabbit', 'Crown Of Creation', 'Volunteers' and 10+ minute versions of 'The Other Side Of This Life' and 'The Ballad Of You & Me & Pooneil'. 2007.

|Quicksilver Messenger Service|
At the Kabuki Theatre CDs (2007)
Last Flight songs Recorded in 1970, this live document captures a band in transition. With the arrival of singer Dino Valente, Quicksilver moved from free-form psychedelia jams to more concise (and commercial) song-oriented material. You can hear both strands of the Quicksilver sound here, but there's an added element of poignancy to guitarists John Cippolina and Gary Duncan's intertwining excursions, as Cippolina was soon to depart the band. This, then, is a snapshot of psychedelic glory right before the fade.
Two CD set taken from the band's final show with the classic line up featuring John Cipollina and Dino Valenti, recorded in San Francisco on December 31st, 1970. Features 18 live tracks digitally remastered with four bonus studio tracks from 1969 featuring the late great Nicky Hopkins on keyboards. Charly. 2007
