About this release

Out of stock

Jefferson Starship grew out of the San Francisco band Jefferson Airplane. The band released their debut album 'Dragonfly' in early 1974, and since that time the band has enjoyed massive success on the world stage both with albums and concert appearances. 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 by fellow founder member David Freiberg still tour regularly and also record releasing a new studio album in late 2008. This live album was recorded on June 12th 2009 at the Del Mar Fairgrounds in Del Mar California. The album captures this legendary band at one of their most recent live concerts celebrating Jefferson Airplane's appearance at the legendary Woodstock Festival in August 1969. The band perform a number of their classic songs including 'Somebody To Love', 'White Rabbit', 'Eskimo Blue Day Volunteers' and 'The Other Side Of This Life', all of which featured in Jefferson Airplane's set at Woodstock forty years ago. The album also features former Grateful Dead keyboardist Tom Constanten on two Grateful Dead songs, 'Deal' and 'I Know You Rider' which cements the relationship The Dead shared with the Airplane and Starship during the sixties and seventies. It is a relationship that survives to this day. Jefferson Starship are currently touring the world as part of the celebrations for the 40th anniversary of the Woodstock Festival.
