This starship called Jefferson had lost Grace Slick and Marty Balin in '78 and gained Mickey Thomas for better or worse. Thus began the 80's Jefferson Starship sound which was definitely MTV friendly but lacked the blues and soul of Balin and the semi-snide intensity of Slick.With "Winds of Change" Slick came back full time and her and Thomas' voices were meant for each other. The only thing lacking was more contribution from JS founder Paul Kantner - who seemed content to take a back seat to writers Sears and Chaquico. Of all the 80's JS (including '79's Freedom at Point Zero) this is my favorite. The title song confirms the power of the Slick voice and the beauty of the Sears melody, while the songs led by Thomas are infectious High School anthems with a great rock riff ("Can't Find Love" being an all time classic). That said, this is a schizophrenic album with the Slick songs having one foot in the past (but oh, what a past) and Thomas hinting at what would become Starship in a few years. Winds of change indeed!

I am one of the rare individuals who likes all incarnations of Jefferson Airplane/Jefferson Starship/Starship. A few years ago, they put out a hits compilation that included songs from all three versions of the band. That CD is great, except it does not include one of my favorite songs from Jefferson Airplane, "Winds of Change". That song squeaked into the Top 40, reaching #38 in early 1983. I have scoured every Greatest Hits package issued over the years, and they always leave that song off. Finally, I found this CD used and decided to buy it just for that track. I love "Winds of Change" because it allows Grace to belt out some "White Rabbit" like theatrics to a distinctively early 80's rock beat. Besides "Winds of Change", I enjoyed many of the other songs included. This contains some great early 80's Jefferson Airplane rock. If you like their hard rockers of that era such as "Jane" and "Find Your Way Back", you will like this CD. Some of the other good tunes on this CD include "Quit Wasting Time", "Can't Find Love", and "It Came from the Jaws of the Dragon". Of course, "Be my Lady" was the other hit off of the album, reaching #28 in late '82. One sour note is "Out of Control", which is another Grace song. Now, I love Grace, but that song is pretty awful. Aside from that track, if you love Jefferson Airplane music, you will love this CD.

Lazarus had nothing on Jefferson Starship when they made a surprising return from the dead in 1979 with "Freedom at Point Zero". Ditching Marty Balin, Grace Slick and the jazzy/blues inspired tracks clocking in at over five minutes liberated the group to rock as it hadn't in ten years. New vocalist Mickey Thomas gave them a vehicle better suited for rock and up-tempo numbers that put Jefferson Starship back on the charts. 1981's "Modern Times" cemented the group's return to form and gave the band the chance to "introduce" Grace Slick to the lineup to a positive and very devastating effect. "Winds of Change" saw them come of video age and welcome a new audience as never before, but the songs weren't as consistently good as the past two recordings. The title track kicks things off with awesome guitar work from Kantner and Chaquico and Mickey Thomas and Grace Slick coolly starting things off before things rapidly heat up. Things boil to a crescendo with both harmonizing to devastating effect. Mickey actually gets more "face time" on the record including the stunning "Be My Lady" that showcases his phenomenal vocal range. Grace is mostly relegated to comic effect on "Out of Control" which is by turns hysterical and really, really out there. Mickey tries to return things to normal on "Can't Find Love" harmonizing with Grace, but the sequencing of the tracks is really throwing things off here. Still, the track is just wonderful. The last three tracks are OK turns for the band, but are pointing to filler to pad out the (then contemporary 45 minutes) for the record. Net-net the good here totally outweighs the bad and it's certainly a good thing this is available domestically as I don't know I'd spring for the Japanese version at that price.Read more ›

Not quite as good as Freedom at Point Zero or Earth, but one person stands out on this album: Craig Chaquico. He is one of the most underrated guitarists of the last 30 years and boy does he shine. The lead harmonies on Be My Lady are absolutely unbelievable! Some of the best guitar work I have ever heard. Pete Sears, David Freiberg and Craig Chaquico emerge as the leaders on this album as Grace Slick and Kantner truly take a back seat. If you were old enough to remember some of the MTV videos from this album, you were lucky. They were quite good.

I never could understand why Jefferson Starship's 1982 work of art, "Winds of Change," didn't get the credit or the airplay it rightfully deserved/deserves. And then even FINDING this album (especially on CD) became a personal odyssey "mission impossible" quest in itself!

One need look no further than Amazon.Com to see how difficult it can be to secure a copy of this highly underrated masterwork from one of the most seminal rock outfits in music history.

Amazon lists "Winds of Change" as requiring 3 to 6 weeks for delivery, rather than the typical turnaround of "usually available within 24 hours." Why!?! "3 to 6 weeks" sometimes means - "not available at all," at least from my own personal experience with Amazon. I wait 3 to 6 weeks for my item, then I wait a few weeks more. Finally Amazon writes to me with regrets that, in fact, they cannot get me the pristine copy of whatever it is I have ordered in the first place. Like - "Total Bummmer, Dudes!"

Fortunately, Amazon now provides "Used" outlets, including the ability to obtain BRAND SPANKING NEW copies of CDs, DVDs, books and so on forth at sometimes WAY SIGNIFICANTLY reduced prices (hooray!), through third-party, independent vendors, working with Amazon. This is very, VERY GOOD news for us beleaguered buyers in quest of that elusive "media gem," whatever it happens to be. In fact, at last check, "Winds of Change" is currently available now, with a one-to-two business-day turnaround, from "8 used and new" sources independent of Amazon, but accessible (and purchasable) via Amazon's website. Yippee!

Because "Winds of Change" in my book is one of Starship's PREMIER albums of all time, regardless of what anyone else tells you.
