The reunion album failed because it wasn't a Jefferson Airplane album. Marty Balin didn't want the Airplane musicians to play on his songs and used members of Toto instead. The producer didn't like Kaukonen's guitarplaying (it didn't help that Kaukonen was a heroine addict at the time) and lots of other guitarists were hired to play on certain songs. Are you sure that it is Kaukonen you hear playing?
Dryden wasn't invited. But without the jazzy influence of his drumming no album sounded like Jefferson Airplane: Not Bark, not LJS, not the reunion album.
Too many cocaine decisions, I'm afraid.

JA was based on Casady's bass, HT on Kaukonen's guitar.
And because Casady is the better instrumentalist, JA was the better band.
Oohhh, what am I saying?
