My guess is that Live at the Fillmore East was released because 1998 was the 30th anniversary of its opening and those were recordings taken from Jefferson Airplane's first shows there. Record companies like to do stuff that means something more than just releasing good live shows...yeah, you don't always get good live albums that way but the company sells more (or at least they think they do).
As for good live shows, I am currently listening to the show from September 14th, 1970. There's a couple of issues with the mic not picking up vocals on We Can Be Together and Greasy Heart, but otherwise the show is great, and it's pretty exciting to hear Jorma & Jack play on the full version of "Starship." (this performance of "Starship" was released on the expanded edition of "Blows Against the Empire")
