Intimate and mindblowing

"A semi-acoustic show with a stripped down version of this illustrious band featuring space captain Paul Kantner on vocals and 12-string. Supplemented by long time collaborator Slick Aguilar on some stellar lead and the always discrete but reliable Chris Smith on keys. And the beautiful Diana Mangano providing the female vocals.
The repertoire is varied and diverse, comprising tributes to Kantner's roots in folk music with songs like "Girl In The Wood" and "Keep Away". Some Jefferson Airplane classics like "White Rabbit", "Good Sheperd" and a very strong "Wooden Ships". And a healthy dose of material from "Blows Against The Empire": a banjo-driven "Baby Tree" and the suite of "Sunshine>Have You Seen The Stars Tonight>Starship", where Aguilar once again showcases his abilities as psychedelic guitarist.
The vocals - often a weak point in later days Starship shows - are strong and brilliant, with Aguilar providing extra harmony. And while Diana isn't in the same league as the divine Grace Slick, she's certainly a fine vocalist with a warm human radiance.
A strong and intimate show. Great sound quality. Uplifting and essential for all Jefferson fans and for lovers of well-crafted music with strong psychedelic roots."
