Biography

Jefferson Airplane was the first of the San Francisco psychedelic rock groups of the 1960s to achieve national recognition. Although the Grateful Dead ultimately proved more long-lived and popular, Jefferson Airplane defined the San Francisco sound in the 1960s, with the acid rock guitar playing of Jorma Kaukonen and the soaring twin vocals of Grace Slick and Marty Balin, scoring hit singles ...

4.0 out of 5 stars San Francisco Night May 3, 2007
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
We did not know it at the time, but this was the final flight by the great Jefferson Airplane. My friend Larry, attended this Winterland concert, and raved to me that Airplane had put on the best show since 10/25/69 (also a Winterland show). The LP: "Thirty Seconds Over Winterland" was my only document of this event upon it's release in 1973. I was taken back that a 7 track short album was only a very tiny part of this monumental event, but I did like the sound the band had with a very prominent Hot Tuna, flavor.

Over the years many bootlegs of this big night have appeared and disappeared, and they always seemed to come from the same lousy audience source (Way back, with some joker's talking about their dope throughout the show). Worse still these poor quality boots never contained the full show. Well, tripsters, here it is! Not of perfect sound, lot's of bum notes and without the funk-factor of being inside Winterland itself...BUT, it's the truth of what happened that night, and you can own it.

The late, Bill Graham does the introduction and it's right into a fast, grundgy; "Somebody To Love". Fine versions of: "The Son of Jesus", "Long John Silver" and "Have You Seen the Saucers?" make this a little more special than your normal Airplane collection. And for you guys that want: "White Rabbit" and other 'Hits', they ain't here, so save your bucks for the greatest hits CD, this is not for you...

For true fans of the Airplane, this CD set is a: "Must-Have". I really enjoy this... wart's 'n' all. This is what the Jefferson Airplane was...a great, great band of an era that changed everything...It will never be like this again! Here goes, I've said it before, and I can't stop saying This: I MISS this band, and I miss Winterland... THIS IS HISTORY!

4.0 out of 5 stars Now this is more like it! April 16, 2007
Format:Audio CD
Here's a raw,but very exciting document of the last ever Jefferson Airplane concert from 1972.

There are a few missed notes,and some flat spots here and there,....but this shows that the band still had some musical fire to spew even in it's last moments.

Avoid the other "Live at Golden Gate Park" release from this Charly/Snapper series though. That one ,although from the band's prime period,has an horrible mix where most of the guitar is missing,and the drums and vocals are too "in your face".

"Last Flight" is a flawed but very cool document for all the Airplane fans out there!

3.0 out of 5 stars Not exactly the last flight . . . May 13, 2007
Format:Audio CD
Being a cult follower of the Airplane/Starship, my appreciation for this disc is large. With that bias in mind, the next question you might have is why buy this instead of "Thirty Seconds Over Winterland", which is the roughly a truncated show from basically the same tour? The answer is as simple as it seems: 1. More music, and 2. A real feel of the status of the Airplane then - with insight to why the split apart.

The music is not as "perfect" as the tracks on Thirty Seconds Over. . .", but there are certain benefits. One is you can really hear Dave Frieberg belting it out like from the days of Quicksilver. He sounds great. The other is you get some serious Papa John features. The downside is ofcourse crazy vocals from Grace and poor mixing from time to time.

While not being my favorite JA recording, I am happy to add it to my collection. For me it replaces "Thirty Seconds . . ." and fills in a hole in the wall that is the legacy of this great SF band. Enjoy!

4.0 out of 5 stars Could have made a great double live album in 1972/73 March 29, 2007
By mimo
Format:Audio CD
This is (for Airplane afficionados) a highly interesting set largely because of the song selection. The band is in good form throughout from start to finish.

The recording originates from one concert (songs are in the original running order) and shows their live set quite "together", much more than you would have expected after having listened to the quite carelessly thrown together THIRTY SECONDS OVER WINTERLAND (the official live record from that tour).-

Recorded at the very end of the golden Airplane era it focuses on their at that time last two LPs (9 tracks from BARK/LONG JOHN SILVER). As the booklet says: These were - compared to their other "solo"activities - the weaker records.... but they get a s t r o n g treatment here and are the center of the show.

The Airplane had been (losing key members of the band and) dividing into fractions at that time & a lot of those "fractions" get their way here:

- Hot Tuna ("Come Back Baby", "John's Other", "Trial By Fire" & "Walking The Tou Tou")...

- Papa John Creach ("Down Home Blues").... and those

- SF-Allstar-LPs that were made at the same time (records that centered mostly around Paul Kantner, then Grace Slick, David Freiberg; represented here to a lesser extent through the "Diana"-intro & "Blind John" that later ended on Mickey Hart's "Rolling Thunder")

Marty Balin joins the band on the last track (his co-penned "Volunteers").

Recording quality is a bit muddy, slightly inconsistent but (for that time) quite good; you can hear vocals and instruments (& what I'm personally very happy about: the BASS); the band has a "sound".- My Christmas wish: a more "heartfelt" mastering.- "Feel So Good" has a cut in the middle.

Got this to show my grandkids what some of the 60's were like. In situ performances and great characters on the perimeter.
