While many of the reviewers grew up with the Jefferson Airplane first and then Hot Tuna and the Jefferson Starship, as a younger fan I did things in reverse order. After purchasing Craig Fenton's Jefferson Starship "Have You Seen The Stars Tonite" I had a thirst to dig deeper into yesteryear.
Fans that grew up hanging out at either Fillmore or ones like me that weren't able to attend the events but crave the information will be stunned by Craig's all inclusive Flight Manual. I went right to the 30 plus full length interviews and then to the concert setlists, and later digested the studio information, and the questions and answers.
Original bass-player Bob Harvey's thoughts are as articulate and compelling as Marty's and Paul's. Sorting through the songs that were played during the Jefferson Airplane live shows made me feel as if I were right next to Bill Graham. You'll love how as the personal changed how to did the live numbers.
All through the journey I felt as if I were actually part of the flight. If Take Me To A Circus Tent could warm the heart of the younger fan one can only imagine what the older rock and roller would feel.
