I have wondered, without ANY answer, as to the origin of these CLEARLY NON-
JEFFERSON-tracks for YEARS... I have seen them appear on NUMEROUS dodgy non-RCA/BMG "compilations" ever since I first delved into the realm of JA as a young lad.
Even as I write, I own a so-called "JEFFERSON AIRPLANE 'BEST OF'" CD which was found at my local drug-store in their little CD bin.
Yes it DOES contain SIX actual JA tracks, some of which are listed as "live" even though they are CLEARLY the studio versions...
And not only but also, years ago, I once owned a CASSETTE called "HIGH FLYING BIRD" which consisted of Side A actual early JA tracks, but Side B was pure SHITE that even at my then-young age, I KNEW were not JEFFERSONS in ANY form.
They kinda reminded me of that somewhat-psychedelic, mediocre 1960's band THE PEANUT BUTTER CONSPIRACY.
The titles are:
"Don't Slip Away"
"You're So Loose" (!?!?!?!
"Would You Love Me"
"What You're Askin' "
I mean, the songs are not BAD...
But they are NOT GREAT, either...
... And they CERTAINLY are NOT ANY kind of JEFFERSONS!!!
At least NOW we are like Hardy Boys / Nancy Drew detectives...
WE are ON THE CASE!!!
STEEL RIDERS huh???
More like "STEAL" Riders I say...
