Rather like fellow San Francisco band The Grateful Dead, Jefferson Starship find themselves in the twenty first century with as much interest in their career as they had in the sixties and seventies. The band still led by founder member Paul Kantner and joined occasionally by fellow founder member Marty Balin still tour regularly and record occasionally. The band however does have a large archive of live recordings made over the years and stored away in the vault. Similar to the Grateful Dead’s “Dick’s Picks” series, in early 2008 Jefferson Starship launch their own official live archive series Mick’s Picks. The live recordings have been chosen and curated by the bands current manager Michael Gaiman.
This recording is one of the more recent live recordings from Jefferson Starship who are still led by founder member Paul Kantner. This three disc set covers a great many Jefferson Starship classics alongside selected works from Jefferson Airplane’s catalogue. Tracks include With Your Love, Runaway, Count On Me, Ride The Tiger Jane, Somebody To Love, Lather White Rabbit and Volunteers.
