Jefferson Airplane is the eighth and final studio album by San Francisco rock band Jefferson Airplane, released on Epic Records in 1989. Marty Balin, Paul Kantner, Grace Slick, Jorma Kaukonen and Jack Casady all returned for the album and supporting tour, though Spencer Dryden did not participate. The album and accompanying tour would mark the last time Jefferson Airplane would perform together until their 1996 induction to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
Its smirky title notwithstanding, The Worst of Jefferson Airplane provides a fine recap of the band's first six albums. Released in 1970 shortly before Marty Balin's initial departure from the band, the album marked not only the end of the decade but, unwittingly, the end of the group's most stable phase in terms of membership. The track selections are evenly divided among the first-generation albums; only the live Bless Its Pointed Little Head is represented by a single entry. Pains were also taken to include songs featuring lead vocalists Balin, Grace Slick, Paul Kantner, and.
Jefferson Airplane was a rock band based in San Francisco, California that became one of the pioneering bands of psychedelic rock. Formed in 1965, the group defined the San Francisco Sound and was the first from the Bay Area to achieve international commercial success. They were headliners at the three most famous American rock festivals of the 1960s-Monterey (1967), Woodstock (1969) and Altamont (1969)-and the first Isle of Wight Festival (1968) in England.
Listening to Jefferson Airplane so many years later brought back so many memories of being with my best friends sitting around talking and enjoying their company. It was a different world then than now. We protested the Vietnam War, went to college, started our first jobs. The vinyl record and album cover reproduction will please any Airplane fan. I want to give a heads up about possible album cover damage that occurs during shipping which happened to me. This album does come in/with a poly cover and is not shrinked wrapped like other records which is fine except that it allows the vinyl record and the slick poly sleeve to slide around inside the album jacket during transport and delivery. This sliding/jerking back and forth eventually causes the record to start bursting through the album cover leaving a long white crack and split on top as was the first record.
On the other hand, we have The Worst of Jefferson Airplane. Actually, as a greatest hits album, I guess it’s OK.
