I agree with you.

The only problem I can see with Blows is that it's just too short!

There have been days when I honestly listen to that album four or five times in its entirety. Call me obsessed, but I just love it. Seriously-- Just imagining parts of CSN, The Airplane, The Dead, and (I believe) David Frieburg on the same album is awesome!

I do disagree with your opinion of Bark. I actually think it's pretty cool. Not anything like the Airplane did before or after it, but I think it works quite well.

David is on Blows with some vocals on "Starship."

Right, yeah.

Isn't Graham Nash on there as well?

Nash is there, according to the cover notes.

Most American albums are too short!

I'm not sure which voice you are referring to, but if it's the "oh-oh-oh" in the background, that's Jorma, and the "Moses, Moses" line is sung by Paul.


If your talking about the oh-oh-oh near the very end, then that kinda makes sense.Its just hard to imagine Jorma singing that high, but its problably him.Its just such a Marty vocal...Oh and listening to Bark again, i might hear him on War Movie but that might also be Jorma.If i ever meet any of them, i will ask them that if its possibly, but thats a far away dream.

Yeah, I doubt that's Jorma, but I'm not sure who else it could be.

Wow, meeting someone in Airplane... I've literally dreamed about that.

Yes, I mean that. One time I dreamed that I was walking with Grace in Golden Gate Park.I think I had a very high fever...

I have thought about meeting my favourite bands/artists atleast once, especially JA.I also like to think about if i could interview them what i would ask.

What a question, what a question.

I have no earthy idea what I would ask, although I suppose it would depend on the band member in question, wouldn't it?

Yeah, i would only ask them stuff about themselves, depending on who im interviewing.I would also try the best i can to ask them stuff no one asks them.When i read these interviews with them, even i get sick of the same old questions about Woodstock, and Grace trying to dose Nixon with acid.And when they say "When you wrote White Rabbit in 1967", is annoying because she wrote it in 1965, and Surrealistic Pillow was recorded in 1966.I would probably be too nervous to interview them though...

If it's not Jorma, then it's Joey. I'm pretty sure I can hear both of them in the song, but I could be wrong. I don't have any cool programs to isolate the voice and figure it out for sure.

Bill Laudner is the other vocal on "War Movie."

Yeah now thinking about it, they probably were Joey Covington and Bill Laudner.I guess I wanted it to be Marty.For a while I used to think Jack sang on Pretty As You Feel :shock: .

Mm-hm. That does make sense... It probably is....

Jack didn't sing anywhere, did he?

The only Jack vocals I know of are the chorus with Papa John and Sammy Piazza on the Gary Davis song, "Let Us Get Together Right Down Here" on the Hot Tuna Burgers album.

Jack also sang on "The Party Song", a tune Hot Tuna played live a couple times in 1977.
