Signe or grace?
I love grace to death(really truly) but i have to admit that signe was more professional vocally. they sound almost the same to me at points but signe's range was ten times better.

For me it's only Grace and no one else,
if Signe never left JA and we never did
hear or see Grace ?...Believe me (or not)
many men would never know JA !...

Why ? (maybe cruel for some JA fans !)

1) Grace, her beauty
2) White Rabbits
2a) Her talent, she wrote 2)
3) Somebody to love
3a) Her humor, not only on stage
4) Grace, her beauty
5) The same as 1 & 4

Yes, i like her very much, not only as a singer of JA.
One important thing, she is a member of PETA.
(I know that some people don't like PETA)
Some $ from her song White Rabbits goes to it...
She doesn't eat meat for a long time now, VERY good !.

Grace....grace...grace...

Singing is not fully about how far your vocals can range and how high you can sing.
Your voice must be something special and succeeds in touching a snare.
The best singer songwriters aren't perfect singers, but they are special and that's enough.
Signe isn't a bad singer at all, but when it comes to other points she is behind Grace.

Indian Summer hit it right on the mark.

Get simple facts:
-Signe Toly Anderson left us with only few records. Excellent records, but too small in number - regrettably.
-Signe spent on public 0.0001% of time comparing to Slick.
-Signe hasn't being engaged in intrigues, egoism and self-promotion.....

With all this said no wonder why Signe is less known to public than Slick. Quite the contrary, the fact that there are people who still remember and love Signe, despite her appearance on ONLY 1 album of JA, speaks how great she is. Signe Toly Anderson is the Singer!

:shock:
Yeah, Grace did it all for her own fun !
Does humor belong in music ? (Frank Z.)

She did "mess" with Paul result is China.
Sorry, intrigues are the usual things in music.

She was the boss on stage !
Marty couldn't make it, so he doesn't like her.

She did some evil with some costumes !
Again some strange humor,not for everybody.

If Signe didn't have that humor, does that make
her a better musician /singer ? Is her voice
soooo much better ? :roll: :roll: :roll: :roll:

Sorry, if you don't like my statement.
I think some people just forget one
VERY important thing !...
Grace did give the Airplane 2 GREAT songs !!!!!!
Do you know these 2 songs ? Yes ? Don't forget it !
It doesn't matter that she is out of the music
for many years, she is still number one.

-Undermining a great band isn't humorous.
-JA isn't all about 2 great songs, they have written dosens great songs.
-Slick held her place in JA like every other member. Boss was Balin. She didn't succeed after him.
-Signe has a good voice until now - after not singing for years and after all troubles she survived. Not that exclusive voice as early in her life, but still strong and remarkable. Thanks Do A Line for sending me their recent performance.

You must remember one important thing,
it was a men's world. Guitarplayers,bassplayers
drummers etc. always men. And what are men doing
when there is a young beautyfull woman ?
Doesn't matter if your name is Paul ,Jack or Jorma
or Marty or Spencer. They are humans as i am and
i am a man to, it's all about sex. Do NOT ignore that.
Now there are MORE women with a job in the
higher levels like managers,directors etc.

1) Is that realy your statement ?
That isn't nice for the men to !, Do you realy think
that those men are so stuppid to let her f*ck things up ?
Did they only want to f*ck her and let her f*ck their
show up ? If they did not like Grace they would
have told her to leave !!!!!!...

2) If you live on MARS yeah...
I don't know who you are and were you live,
but here in Europe JA would be NOTHING without Grace.
NOW some people know them because Grace
and her 2 songs.Other places on this planet would
NEVER heard of JA.Hot Tuna ? in Europe ? rare stuff !
.JA ? rare stuff to !.Grace solo ?
more rare than Hot Tuna & JA !.

3) Ask more people for that,
maybe he was the only one without sex with her.

Sorry, if you don't like my statement...

We can't speak in conjunctive mood because we don't know what JA would be without Grace and with Signe. Plain fact though is their first and great album was recorded with Signe. This album among best debutes in rock music. Another plain fact is Signe was gifted with extraordinary vocal. I won't speak for Europe, but here on Mars we know and love JA for dozens songs (not only those two you mentioned).
