Yeah... I don't know...

I have got about 30 live "rare" or "import" or "bootleg" CD's of JA, but that GREAT song does seem to be missing from like ALL of them...

No, sorry. It doesn't appear to be on any album, or on any Airplane live performance I know of. I did find this website, which shows the number of times and on what date the Airplane played a certain song.

your's isn't on many records.

And The Ballad Of You & Me & Pooneil
isn't on many records to.

Why ?
Who knows :roll: :roll: :roll: :roll:


Although Ballad of You and Me and Pooneil is not on many records, the Airplane did play this song live very often, along with White Rabbit, Somebody to Love, and Other Side. I can recall a version on After Bathing At Baxter's Bonus Tracks, Sweeping Up the Spotlight, and Monterey. Love the live version on Baxter's !

I just found something. If you are desperate (REALLY desperate :wink: ), a Starship reunion group played a live version of DCBA-25 in the 2000s. Haven't heard it or know much of it, just searched the SugarMegs site. Follow the link and search for DCBA 25 in the asxcards:

Yeah I found Jefferson Starship version of D.C.B.A.-25 and it was ok, but I bet that Jefferson Airplane version would be better. :D
Thanks for the links

Funny, I was just searching thru FurthurNet for that. There's another thread here with a link to the alleged lyrics to it and the first line of the second verse is stated as

"Here in this ocean, the near and holy,"

where to me it clearly says

"Here in crystal chandelier, I'm home,"

I wonder if the author was listening to a live version where either the sound wasn't clear or Paul just plain sang something else?

If anyone would know about it's live performance, Craig should. Offhand I can't remember coming across it's mention in his book.

Cheers,
Dave

PS,

Here's a amateur's take on it:

After listening to it several times, it seems that if you listen carefully enough, both sets of lyrics can be made out. So I'm pretty sure it is not from a long forgetten live or alternative take of DCBA 25.
I don't know which is right; I searched all the lyrics sites I could find, and almost all of them had different lyrics and got wrong lyrics that are clearly discernable. :roll:

The funny thing is, according to Jorma, the title has nothing to do with drugs. It was simply the 25th song they were working on that had the D-C-B-A chord progression. I won't admit to the number of hours I spent with friends trying to figure out what new drug this was and where could we get some! :oops: :oops: :oops:

Cheers,
