The Jefferson Airplane, psychedelic rock legends who laid down the soundtrack for the Summer of Love, floated in this dynamic bit of wanderlust back in 1969 that went entirely unheralded, despite being one of the most coherent and well structured live albums of the time, right up there on equal footing with Happy Trails by the Quicksilver Messenger Service, though not as dream laden.

Touching the hearts and minds of the counterculture with their warm intoxicating songs that were both politically charged and drug fueled, The Jefferson Airplane set a course unlike any other of the day, with this album Bless It’s Pointed Little Head, showcasing what the band was capable of in a live setting, while at the top of their game, just prior to the end of the lysergic decade, and just before the cynical nature that would be wrapping itself around so many of the same hearts and minds during the 1970’s.

The Airplane walked out to the edge on this one, and played there for the entire two nights, including a dynamic psychedelic version of the Donovan classic “Fly Translove Airways,” which they manage to remake and remodel into their own special image, coming off even more intoxicating than the original, slowly flowering before ebbing into a sonic masterpiece that spans both space and time. The track showcased the band’s ability at improvisation and jamming, complete with stoned vocals, and epic psych drone that’s mixed with warbling guitars, all fueled and ready to move from one song to another blissfully, creating an emotionally charged atmosphere of electricity that didn’t so much strike the audience, but like St. Elmo’s Fire, moved from one willing mind to another.

There are several surprises to be found here on this album, one that was recorded at the Fillmore East and West in the fall of 1968, and these surprises may have led to the failure of this album to catch on, as it ushered in a side of The Jefferson Airplane that heretofore had not been experienced. To say that the nights were delirious would be an understatement, as the band brought in enough raw power to bring the MC-5 back to life with their jagged rock bursts and punchy integrity, at times even punkish, in a manner that would rival the Velvet Underground or The Doors at times, where Balin’s vocals are so raw and mind melting that even the term ‘garage psych’ is not enough to do them justice … this time out, emphasizing the skills of Jorma Kaukonen and Jack Cassidy over those of Grace Slick and Marty Balin.

The band seemed to be trying to outrun something on this recording, whether that was from themselves and the cracks that were beginning to show within the band, or that they were attempting to outrun the 60’s and all of the laid-back wasted bliss. Regardless of what they were running from, they left an amazing amount of material on the cutting room floor from those two nights so long ago. One can only hope that that material has not been lost to the winds, and that somehow, someday, each of the concerts may be strung back together with sequential tracking so that fans will be able to immerse themselves into the lush power that was the Jefferson Airplane in a live setting.

This might just be my favorite JA album, though I know people who don't appreciate it at all.

Thing is, I suspect that people who aren't into this one just really aren't into Jefferson Airplane in general. But I think of this as a great peek at a moment in time: the classic Fillmore experience of 67-68. And there's a reason why the Airplane was considered the best of the SF "acid rock" bands.

The LP starts with audio of the Fillmore audience watching the old RKO film of 'King Kong' --it was common at the time to show an old movie during the set breaks. Later Kantner namechecks Owsley from the stage, so the flavor of the times is well represented.

Oh yeah, there's music too!

It's astonishing to hear how this group has evolved in just a few short years. Early pop songs like "It's No Secret" and "Somebody to Love" are deconstructed and reassembled into lenthy freakouts perfectly suited for an extended trip. Jack Casady is a demon throughout.

The set includes several covers that had been in their live set but never made it onto a studio album, such as Fred Neil's "The Other Side of This Life," Donovan's "Fat Angel," and B.B. King's "Rock Me Baby."

So, to me, it's an enjoyable document of an era and ought to be remembered among the best live albums of the time --yup, it's as good as "Live at Leeds" or "Band of Gypsies," and better than "Live Cream" or "Get Your Ya-Yas Out." It may not be everyone's cup of electric tea, but I'd call it an indispensible document of what JA did best.

This is a decent album, and if you are an Airplane fan then I guess it's essential to hear them stretch out a little on the live performances. "Bear Melt" is a particularly good example of their live sound.
