Re-release of previous compilations
on November 1, 2012
Not sure about the purpose of this issue. I don't own this so I'm unaware if there is anything special included in terms of inserts/liner notes or possibly another remaster of the songs but the track listing is identical to those of two previously released double-CD compilations: "Jefferson Airplane/Jefferson Starship/Starship - Hits" (1998--which I do own) and "Jefferson Airplane/Jefferson Starship/Starship - Greatest Hits" (2002), one of which you might be able to get cheaper. Regarding the songs, the collection is OUTSTANDING and is the most comprehensive compilation of the "popular songs" from all three iterations of this band. Also, the songs are essentially presented in chronological order so you can listen to the various changes in the bands' music as they were undergoing seemingly constant lineup (and band name) changes. The liner notes included with the referenced 1998 issue are pretty thorough having a good overview of the band from beginning to end and release and chart performance information for each of the tracks. I would expect/hope that information would be included with this issue as well. ENJOY!!
