A Bizzare Collection

"As double disc antholgies go, it doesn't get more truly bizzare than "Hits," by the ever evolving combo from San Francisco which, by the time they had been reduced to merely a Starship, contained exactly ZERO original members (Grace Slick was not part of JA's debut album). Stylistically, the journey from the hippie spaciness of the twin classics "White Rabbit" and "Somebody to Love" to the utterly vapid 1980s video hits "We Built This City" and "Nothing's Gonna Stop Us Now" is an epic worthy of the Enterprise.That said, if you're a casual fan who liked the JA-S in all of their many incarnations, it's nice to have all of the best stuff in one economically priced package. My only quibble is that it contains only one selection (the smash single "Miracles") from the studio album "Red Octopus," easilly the best from the Jefferson Starship period. The collection is also heavilly weighted with Airplane tracks, which is to its credit. Still, as the two hours-plus unfold, the transformation (read: commercial sellout) of this once-cutting edge band is nothing short of stunning.Overall, an economically priced and sensibly chosen double disc anthology for the casual fan."
Count On Me.

"Though I was born after Jefferson Airplane and before Jefferson Starship, I happen to like all three incarnations of the band. I know this will offend many fans, but it's true. Pop is pop especially if it's good. Great songs like "White Rabbit", "Somebody To Love", "Miracles", "Count On Me", "Jane", "Stranger", "Find Your Way Back", "Be My Lady", "Layin' It On The Line", "No Way Out", "We Built This City", "Sara", "Tomorrow Doesn't Matter Tonight", "Nothing's Gonna Stop Us Now", "It's Not Over Til It's Over" and "It's Not Enough" all make this band what it was. They're all here, digitally remastered, plus great non-hits as well. Some fans will scratch their heads in disbelief that someone like myself could like all incarnations of this band since they changed drastically over the years. Sure, Airplane stood for something entirely different than Starship. Things change. This two disc compilation is a very good one because it has everything a non-fan would like to own from this band. The fans can collect each album individually. This compilation is a must have for any rock collector."
Satisfying, but a boxed set would be great!

"It's a little hard to believe that the trippy Jefferson Airplane became the rocking Jefferson Starship only to disintegrate into the sappy Starship, but the transformation is right here on these two CDs. The songs you'd expect to find on a hits collection of these three bands are here -- Somebody to Love, White Rabbit, Miracles, Caroline, Jane and We Built This City, to name a few. For me, this compilation is worth having for the full version of Miracles, which was edited for radio play back in the 70s but is more passionate and amazing at its full length! While this set is satisfying, I'd like to see a boxed set someday...
