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 ...

Editorial Reviews

This is it, folks, the first set of concerts featuring Grace Slick as a member of the Jefferson Airplane, a mere day after Signe Anderson officially left the band. It s too early for the band to play any of the material ( Somebody to Love ; White Rabbit ) that Grace brought to the band, but her harmony work with Marty and Paul is remarkable, and you can literally hear her confidence growing from the first show to the next! Includes The Other Side of This Life ; Let s Get Together ; Let Me In ; Don t Let Me Down ; Run Around ; It s No Secret ; Tobacco Road ; Kansas City ) (this Leiber & Stoller song has never been released on any Airplane album or compilation!); Bringing Me Down ; This Is My Life ; High Flyin Bird ; Thing (a version of this jam appeared on the Live at the Fillmore East CD released a few years back), and 3/5 of a Mile in 10 Seconds . Things would never be the same for the band or for 60s rock.

So highly recommended, it makes my head spin.
Mike Reed
Grace is feeling her way, occasionally she comes in strong, showing the power that would headline her later, but sometimes she seems unsure and tentative.

The Great Society was a better scene for show piece of Grace`s talents as a writer,singer and multi-instrumentalist.

This is live CD shows the one fine moment in the San Francisco music scene history.
Grace Slick known as the great, talented, charming and also controversial rock persona left the Great Society band for being the Airplane vocalist in October 1966. It was good for the San Francisco band ruled by Paul Kantner and Marty Balin and made this band very popular later as soon as she recorded two all American hits: "Somebody To Love" and "White Rabbit". But I don`t know it was good for Grace`s talent. In Airplane she sings mainly backgrounds, only few times she takes solo parts. This CD is the show peace of the Airplane art as a band ,not for the Grace singing. She just trying to background, sometimes with shyness - just like a debut singer! Only on "High Flying Bird" from the second set You`ll find the Grace Slick which every San Francisco music fan knows. If You want to hear great female singing check the Great Society live recordings ("Collector`s Item") where she rocks, hypnotizes and stands against the old 60`s tradition of woman singing.The Great Society was a better scene for show piece of Grace`s talents as a writer,singer and multi-instrumentalist.

But still this one is a nice dope of Jefferson Airplane interesting art. They rocks well on "It`s No Secret","3/5 Of a Mile In 10 Seconds" and "High Flying Bird" echoing their folk-rock fastinations. Real rarities here are extended live version of rare early Airplane works: "Don`t Let Me Down" and excellent blues cover of "Kansas City".The most fascinating track here is "Thing" in it`s early, dynamic, instrumental, east-oriented long-rolling version.To hear this one is a must!!!!!
In this way You can find how this band sounds on stage in those early days.

On the final evening of a three-night stand at the original Fillmore, Jefferson Airplane welcomed their new co-lead singer, Grace Slick. The night before they'd bid farewell to singer Signe Anderson (the late set of which has been released on Signe's Farewell), and in closing out the weekend they put the band's most famous lineup in place. The Sunday night set list shared several songs with previous night's, including a cover of "Tobacco Road" that sounds neither like John Loudermilk's original nor the Nashville Teen's 1964 hit single, and the Marty Balin originals "And I Like It" and "3/5 of a Mile in 10 Seconds." The set added songs from the band's debut and a few more covers, including a pre-Youngbloods take on "Let's Get Together" and a roaring guitar-fueled vision of Leiber & Stoller's "Kansas city."

Slick provided a striking visual addition to the band, as evidenced by a pair of photographs included on this set's digipack, but her vocal and writing presence in the band was yet to fully flower. She sounds tentative in harmonizing with Balin, and the signature songs she'd brought with her from the Great Society, "White Rabbit" and "Somebody to Love," either weren't played or aren't included in this condensation of the night's two sets. Slick's place in the band would solidify quickly as they gigged, recorded Surrealistic Pillow and returned to the Fillmore the following month, as documented on We Have Ignition.

A very peaceful and tight album from the period. The Jefferson Airplane were pioneers of the pschycadelic music movement of the period, and they did it so well. Without becoming weird.

I give this release 5 stars for the pure historical nature of this recording. This show is important because it is the first show with Grace Slick on board as the new singer! This is where the airplane really takes off!! But I have to note that if you are looking for the best sounding live recording of the airplane this is not it. The show from the night before that features Signes last show is a much better sounding and the performance is better. But for any real fan of the airplane this night is historically significant and that why I would recommend to the hardcore fan that really wanted to be there 10/16/66 for the first show with grace. Very nice packaging on these releases

To be fair, this recording is from 1966, way back when the recording of live concerts was primitive. Recording this band would have been difficult because of all the different singers, harmonies and their various levels.
Even though they tune between numbers, they still end up a bit out of tune here and there. The band isn't really tight and there isn't very much drive in the music.
The channel balance is uneven, but the sound isn't really distorted. There isn't much dynamic range. I cannot state that this is a really good recording.
Some of the songs are a bit lame, but again, what can be expected in 1966? There is a prominent folk-rock influence on the songs.
Marty Balin tries really hard and Grace does as well as possible on her first gig to support him. She seems a bit unsure.
Most of the songs are played at too slow of a tempo and drag. Jorma isn't shy about cranking out his unique brand of guitar.
This is not the type of recording I believe I would want to listen to again.
The packaging is a super cheap cardboard digi-pak, very unattractive.
