Jefferson Airplane was considered a really good rock outfit. They were a key part of the sex, drugs and rock n' roll of the 70's. Swiftly they began to change. From battles over the name of the band to member changes to style changes, the group seemed more like three or four bands than one. The musical styling changes prove that. Those changes can be heard throughout this album.

The earlier songs found here, especially "Jane," hearken back to the days when this band was built to rock. Songs like "No Way Out" revealed the changes to come as the band metamorphosed one more time into a pop/arena rock outfit. Of course, this change lead to their big hits of the 80's, such as "Nothing's Gonna Stop Us Now" and "Sara," which are included here. The album also includes a couple of new tracks which are pretty good, "Good Heart" and "Don't Lose Any Sleep," which show a band embracing their new pop sound to perfection.

Of course, there are always songs that bring about controversy, and "We Built This City" is that song on this compilation. Much like Styx's "Mr. Roboto," this song is either loved or detested by all that hear it. I'm one of those schmucks who loves the song. It's been rated one of the cheesiest songs ever on a multitude of television shows and in magazines. It's also been called one of the best pop tunes ever. No matter which side of the fence you're on, it's here for you to sample.

In closing, all you can really say about this album is that it gives you a taste of what once was Jefferson Airplane, what became Jefferson Starship, and what eventually went down in flames groupwise as Starship. All of the songs on this album are keepers, but there's nothing especially groundbreaking here. Just keep in mind that Starship is the pop version of Jefferson Airplane, and you won't be let down.

Say what you will about them, but Starship has 3 Number One hits. Starship established themselves as one of the best performers of pop ballads of the mid-late 80's, with #1 hits Sara and Nothing's Gonna Stop Us Now. Both are among my favorite pop ballads, and the song Nothing's Gonna Stop Us Now has actually prompted me to see the movie Mannequin which features this song. And you can't forget about We Built This City , their first #1 hit in 1985. The Jefferson Starship-era songs are OK, but not my cup of tea. I much prefer the pop sound of Starship, which is on the second half of this CD.

"Nothing's Gonna Stop Us Now" was the only song I knew when I bought the album. After only I few listens, there wasn't a single song on the album that I didn't enjoy. Its an exceptional collection, tweleve fantastic songs and no loose ends. The album opens with five Jefferson Starship songs from the period of 1979-1984. "Jane" (from FREEDOM AT POINT ZERO) is an excellent rocks song, with fantastic bocal effects. "Find Your Way Back" and "Stranger" from 1981's MODERN TIMES are equally intriging. "Find Your Way Back" is as incredible rock song as "Jane", with outstanding guitar work. "Stranger" has fantastic production, with great production and masterful vocals from Mickey Thomas and Grace Slick. "No Way Out" is a terrific love song, a lot different than the preceeding three songs, but not any less marvelous. "Layin' It On The Line" is the last of the Jefferson Straship songs, and both this and "No Way Out" came from the great record NUCLEAR FURNITURE. "Don't Lose Any Sleep" recorded in 1990, features only Mickey Thomas and Craig Chaquico, but its still an outstanding song. The second half of the record starts of all systems go, with three consecutive #1 hits. "We Built This City" is as enjoyable after 5000 times as it is the first. Exceptional keyboard arrangements and wonderful vocals keep the song fresh and eager. "Sara" is a gorgeous ballad, magnificently perfomed. These two #1s from the 1985 release KNEE DEEP IN THE HOOPLA are both worthy of their chart status. My favorite song is still "Nothing's Gonna Stop Us Now", which is as fanscinating today as it was when I heard the song in a movie.Read more ›

"The JEFFERSON STARSHIP" (once known as the "JEFFERSON AIRPLANE"), were quite a legendary group of musicians in the 1970s and 1980s with such songs as "White Rabbit", "Play On Love", "Count On Me" AND MANY OTHERS!!!. if for some reason you haven't heard any of their music, I suggest that you find some of their albums, and give them a good listen!!!. I am quite sure that you will be quite pleased at at-least some of the music that you hear from either "Jefferson Starship" or "Jefferson Airplane".

I am one who was never a big fan of the old Jefferson Airplane, and even some of the Jefferson Starship offerings (right up through "Nuclear Furniture") I had trouble listening to from beginning to end. Only with the admittedly very pop Starship era could I truly enjoy listening to entire albums by this band. (I in fact have all three full-length albums of new material under the "Starship" moniker.) That being said, this compilation is truly a fine representation of the biggest pop/rock hits of the latest era of this band.
How can you go wrong with such classic rock fare as "Jane" and "Find Your Way Back"? "No Way Out" was a great, somewhat forgotten hit during the last year that "Jefferson" was still in the band's title. And of course, the era of the band's biggest hits--during which I bought their original albums--was great with ballads like "Sara" and "Nothing's Gonna Stop Us Now" and uptempo, fun tracks like "We Built This City" and "It's Not Over (Til It's Over)". It is a bummer that the radio edit version of "We Built This City" (i.e., the version without the DJ's voice) is what is included here, but it is still great to listen to along with all the other big hits and a couple of unknowns that measure up to the rest of the tracks (e.g., "Good Heart"). I also have to rave about "It's Not Enough", a mid-tempo melodic gem that was the band's last top 40 hit and on their last album of all-new material.
I do wish that "Tomorrow Doesn't Matter Tonight", the top 40 single following the two classic #1 smashes "We Built This City" and "Sara", was here.
