Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Jefferson Airplane was the greatest of the late sixties San Francisco bands, of which there were many (hold your horses and read on, Dead fans). They developed over their brief career a deliberately loose, almost ramshackle sound that was integral to their appeal. It was emblematic of the "San Francisco sound" that they helped create, but no other band of that time and place produced such energetic unpredictability with such tight musicianship, or with such a strong sense of melody, harmony and drama. Sure, the Grateful Dead emerged from the same scene and mastered that tight looseness too, but it took them longer to get good at it, and they never came close to the Airplane on intra-band vocal interplay. The Dead, of course, established a much greater legacy over three decades, but if we're talking San Francisco bands of the Airplane's creative era (roughly 1966-1970), then the Airplane is the champ. Jorma Kaukonen and Jack Casady were among the very best lead guitar-bass combinations in the rock era (comparable to the fully mature Jerry Garcia and Phil Lesh), and no other female rock singer ever equaled Grace Slick. She's in a league of her own, vocally, and she composed some of the most strikingly original songs of the rock era (think White Rabbit, Lather, Greasy Heart, Eskimo Blue Day, Mexico).
This collection, while lacking the remastering of the Airplane's music that occurred in the mid 90s, is still the most comprehensive collection of their best material available to this day. Of course it does not include all their good songs, but it includes all of their very best. And naturally, not all of the material here is equally good, but most of it is very high caliber.

It really wouldn't require much effort for RCA to assemble a better-sounding version of this set; after all, the individual albums were nicely remastered in 1995. Apparently they lack the neccessary motivation to do so, however, since they continue to sell this rather murky-sounding edition, which dates back to 1987. It's a shame, because it _is_ the best Airplane compilation on the market, better than the too-slender _Worst Of_ or the moronic _Airplane/Starship Hits_.

This excellent compilation is severely undercut by truly poor sound quality. Even vinyl played on a good system sounds WAYYY better. But, now that the original albums have been nicely remastered from the original multitrack tapes, there is happily no need for you to shell out your bucks for this relic of the Dark Ages of digital remastering! Start with the reissue of "...Takes Off" and work your way up through the catalogue. Your head will be nicely fed.

When this came out in 1990 or so, it was easily THE compilation to get on Jefferson Airplane. It didn't sound too bad, better than the Jefferson Airplane CD's from previous years, the artwork was (and is) well-done and pretty cool, and the track selection was superb. However, it's been out-of-print for years, and when RCA/BMG merged with Sony, they released another two-disc compilation as part of Sony's "Essential" CD's. That set, titled "The Essential Jefferson Airplane," used the same mastering as the superb reissues produced by Bob Irwin in 2003, utilizing the original master tapes for every song and supposedly using EQ instructions given for the original Lp releases.

So what else is different? Well, the artwork on "2400 Fulton Street" is still better, a nice throwback to the late 60's (I think, I wasn't around then), and it has 36 tracks to "The Essential"'s 32, adding a few interesting choices like 'Triad' and some early Levi's commercial 'jingles' recorded by the band. However, the sound on "2400 Fulton Street" is subpar in comparison, and the shuffled order on "2400 Fulton Street" doesn't work that well.

The only reason for buying "2400 Fulton Street" is the price - as of this writing, there's a ton of used copies ranging from $5 to $10 being sold right here. If you're on a budget, I'd pick up one of those used copies, but if you've got a little more money to spend or prefer a better introduction to the band, get the "The Essential Jefferson Airplane."

The honest truth about the Jefferson Airplane is that when they were good they were sensational, and when they were bad they were abysmal. I think one reason for that probably is because, more so than most bands, the Airplane was a unit pulled in four distinct directions by five people. There was Marty Balin and his soul and love ballad penchant; there was Paul Kantner with his increasingly strident "f**k the establishment" anthems that gradually took over the proceedings; there were Jorma Kaukonen and Jack Casady, who were the fulcrum of ensemble rock and blues playing (with a little jazz in there as well), and then there was Grace Slick---for my money the best songwriter of the band---with her oddball lyrical musings and impressionistic melody sense. What started out fairly cohesive at the beginning of the band's existence got increasingly fragmented over the course of 7 studio albums, and by the time the band ran out of steam in 1973 you saw each faction revert to type (Hot Tuna, Jefferson Starship, etc.).

If you have no patience for some of the dreck that went along with the gems the Airplane produced during their heyday, 2400 FULTON STREET is the collection to get. Besides the "hits" ("Somebody to Love," "White Rabbit"), there are the showcases for each component part of the ensemble. Among these are Marty's exquisite "Comin' Back To Me," his frenetic "Plastic Fantastic Lover," Paul's "Crown of Creation," Jorma's stinging take on the traditional "Good Shephard" and the wistful "Third Week In The Chelsea," and Grace's "ReJoyce" and her menacing "Eskimo Blue Day." And much more besides.

Me, I love the Airplane's missteps about as much as I love their bullseyes---which is to say that I love 'em a lot. So I'm more likely to hunker down with AFTER BATHING AT BAXTER'S or VOLUNTEERS than I am with this collection. But it is recommended for either the casual fan or the neophyte---a good beginners flight on Trans-Love Airways.
