Editorial Reviews

We subtitled these shows We Have Ignition because this is when the Airplane transformed from a high flyin bird into a psychedelic spaceship (but not starship)! It is very, very hard to believe, after comparing this set to Grace Slick s debut, that less than six weeks have elapsed. Not only has the band (particularly guitarist Jorma Kaukonen) progressed as musicians by leaps and bounds, but the infusion of Surrealistic Pillow material some four months before the album hit the stores shifts the focus of this folk-rock band decidedly towards rock, as the band and the audience are making mutual discoveries of the new repertoire. Includes Plastic Fantastic Lover ; High Flyin Bird ; Bringing Me Down ; D.C.B.A.-25 (the only documented live performance of this Surrealistic Pillow gem!); Go to Her ; My Best Friend ; White Rabbit ; It s No Secret ; She Has Funny Cars ; 3/5 of a Mile in 10 Seconds ; Other Side of This Life ; Tobacco Road ; J.P.P. McStep B. Blues (a very rare live appearance for this Skip Spence tune!); Fat Angel ; In the Morning ; Let Me In ; Today , and It s No Secret . That was to be it for the 11/27 matinee show, but the band was called back for some photographs, and the result was two of the most rare/valuable live moments in the band s history. The first was a short instrumental known as My Grandfather s Clock , which never was played again by the band. The second was a 9:45 version of Other Side of This Life which takes the Fred Neil song in directions neither its author or even the band could ever have anticipated. The Airplane at its early apex.

The Bootleg has very little tape hiss, and its in stereo.
W. T. Hoffman
The tape transcriptions leave the inter-song continuity in place, and though the band isn't particularly chatty, the spaces help give a sense of the show's pacing.
hyperbolium
Just go ahead and buy all their 'live' early gigs, if your an 'Airplane' fan as myself.

After several delays of the release date, we FINALLY have the Jefferson Airplane live material recorded during the same time that SURREALISTIC PILLOW was being recorded. Just reviewing the set lists, shows how close to the finished product of their second album they were. Apparently, JPP McSTEP P BLUES, or Jorma's IN THE MORNING, were much closer to being on the finished album then "HOW DO YOU FEEL?", judging from which songs they performed. These shows have been around for years as bootlegs, at least the Nov 25th show. (the other show commonly bootlegged was Nov. 26th.) The performances given these nights were outstanding, and very close to the sound you hear on SURREALISTIC PILLOW. After this date, lots of SUMMER OF LOVE drugs, fame, and hippie convictions made the band's sound first more experimental (Baxters), then heavier (Crown of Creation), ending in a very hard edged folkrock sound by 1969 (Volunteers). Except for about 40 minutes on their box set, NOTHING has ever been offered by the band offically, from what many consider their best year/period. (NOV.66-FEB 68). It's no secret, that these CDs were being pulled from Bill Graham's tapes, which anyone can hear on his website. However, hearing the Bootleg of the NOV 25th evening show, and comparing it side by side with this new CD's recording, I was STUNNED at how bad this release's sound was. The Bootleg has very little tape hiss, and its in stereo. WE HAVE IGNITION, however, is IN MONO. Also, this is a second generation tape (or 3rd). It could be the Bill Graham tape was sourced from the soundboard, while Jorma ran his own stereo tape recorder from the stage for the evening show.Read more ›

This is an interesting set from a historical perspective, showcasing the band around the time of recording Surrealistic Pillow, up until now undocumented by official live releases. That albums songs make up the bulk of the sets. The sound is good, esp. for the era, with the vocals way up in the mix. The instrumental interplay the band would become known for is still in its nascent stage. Grace is tame and seems somewhat hesitant, compared to the live presence she would soon become. The band would sound much more cohesive just a few months later at Monterey. The shows are dominated by Marty, which may or may not be a recommendation.
While interesting to hear, for me this won't hold up to repeated listening, unlike last years Woodstock set. This is not my favorite era of the band, but if it is for you, and Surrealistic Pillow is your favorite JA album, you should find plenty to enjoy in this set.

Let me preface this by saying I've been a fan of the Airplane for a long time. I've been collecting their bootlegs since I was 16 (over half a lifetime ago, now). I have hundreds of J. Plane shows, and I don't get bogged down in "poor" sound quality (I have some that sound unlistenably dreadful). I'd say these are average-sounding recordings from this time period. Sure, there are some better-sounding shows out there, but there are more that sound worse or the same.

I'm giving this four stars, though it pains me to do so (I want to give it less). I think the recordings themselves and the fact that Collector's Choice made them officially available for the first time warrants four stars. But the job they did with this is shoddy at best. I've seen people complaining on here about the lack of liner notes for this release. That's probably because CC chose to hide the booklet (if you can call it that) in a little pocket behind the second disc (the back of the release) as opposed to a pocket at the front, as is customary. That's not really a big deal, but it is odd. The liner notes themselves are pitiful, as is the information contained on the back cover. There is absolutely no delineation of early/late sets or even where one date ends (even the discs themselves list both dates on each, so it isn't clear that one disc is one date and the other disc is the second date). More important, this official release should include such information as what is missing (as these certainly are not complete sets). The Jefferson Airplane Live Base (now hosted at [...]), which I've found to be very accurate over the years, lists a "Somebody to Love" and a "Let's Get Together" as having been played on 11/25.

With all the early "Jefferson Airplane" recordings, I would recommend getting this album, along with all the other early 'live' Airplane material. They were such a great band for their energy, psychedlic feel, & emotion. Just go ahead and buy all their 'live' early gigs, if your an 'Airplane' fan as myself. These 'live' recordings capture the 'feel' & sign of the times.

I purchased this CD set and was looking forward to hearing it. It was the hey day of the Airplane, filled with songs from the first two albums---my favorites. I listened to it several times and then....I sold it on the secondary market. It was, frankly, boring.
