"Jefferson Airplane/Starship always worked best when it could move beyond the personality dynamics within the band. It's when they on tight, powerful 3-part vocalizations (Paul Kantner-Marty Balin-and wheoever the female vocalist is at the time) and polished instrumentation that this band(s) can really shine. This live offering offers just a glimpse of what happens when things do work right. The first half of this disc are new offerings and covers of other songwriters. The strongests tunes are Shadowlands and The Light. The remaining cuts are culled from the best of the Airplane era and the first incarnation of Jefferson Starhip. Grace Slick guests on Lawman, Wooden Ships, Somebody to Love and White Rabbit and she sounds strong and fiesty as ever. My only major complaint is that the bass playing really doesn't come to the surface. A performer as important, influential and distinctive as Jack Cassidy should never be lost or buried in the sound mix!"

"I am glad to see that others enjoy this CD as much as I do. This effort to me is the crowning acheivement of a band that was under-rated in their time and whose music practically defined an entire generation (the late 60's and 1970's). Kantner - Slick vocals are as strong here as anytime in their career. I feel this CD was made with the relaxation that stemed from the knowledge this would be the last time this band would play such a venue, and the music flowed with energy. The guitar work is exceptional. I own most of the CD's that Airplane and Starship put out, and this is a definitive view of the power and vision that was......Jefferson Starship."
