Jefferson Airplane – Live At The Fillmore East

22 09 2010

Listened: Friday September 3

As turbulent their relationships might have been, Jefferson Airplane made some amazing music together, and Live At The Fillmore East captures them while they still were more or less functional as a band. Won’t You Try/Saturday Afternoon captures that function quite well.

I love all the guitar work Jorma Kaukonan does on Thing and Fat Angel. I don’t enjoy so much what they did to Today. It’s sooooo slowed dooooown. It was a slow song in the first place, and I don’t know why it needed to get slower. Grace does a little bit too much scat singing in places too, but then, that’s what she does, given that she doesn’t really have a singer’s voice.

Oh, and this is a brilliant album cover. It took me a second to get it.
