Garcia's Pedal Steel

How THE HELL did I not include "Your Mind Has Left Your Body" to my above list of pedal steel acid beauty? :roll:

Jack's bass again, too.

I'm really into Long John Silver right now, but haven't got it on CD yet.

http://www.deaddisc.com/ot/Long_John_Silver.htm

My favorites are the two Kantner tunes; Twilight Double Leader and Alexander The Medium.
Another great track is Kaukonen and Slick written Eat Starch Mom.
What's your opinion about this 'gem' that has been hated by many.

My opinion; great album and underrated.
The JA and soloalbums around 1970 are worth listening too.

i loved blows. Sunrise is one of my very favorite songs and I always liked anything Grace and Paul did together. They worked really well together and it shows.
Manhole was pretty cool too.

Eat Starch Mom alone is worth is worth the price of LJS. Gracie's vocals & Jorma's screaming feedback guitar still chilling after all these years. Bark was a misfire, but IMHO, their studio swansong was first class.

"volunteers" was also based on the same Crosby riff used in "....Together"
"someone nicked my signature innit?"

There was a poll recently that asked us fans what we consider to be the greatest JA album.
Unfortunately the solo records are not included...
I just listened to 'Blows Against The Empire' and 'Tollbooth' and was overwhelmed by the quality of those records.
There are even better than most Airplane records, but strangely most of us don't even have them.

Wel...it's just that Jefferson Airplane followers own most of the studiorecords, but pass everything 'rare'.
'Takes Off', 'Blows Against The Empire', 'Sunfighter' 'Tollbooth' '30 Seconds Over Winterland' are good examples.

I wouldn't say "30 Seconds" is rare as very $$$$$ for a copy on CD; could say the same for "Bark" too.

Blows Against the Empire pretty much owned my life around this time last year.

They are extremely uncomfortable with the idea that I am a teenage girl in the body of a 60 year old career criminal who has already died 16 times...

These choices are all fine, but I was just listening to Hot Tuna' "America's Choice" from 1975. That's a pretty hot electric sound!
