Please allow me to introduce myself...

Hello, I am a longtime Airplane fan and occasional troller on this site and I thought I'd register and say hello. (Hope your all having a great Thanksgiving.) Since I've logged on, I'll take the time to ask a few random Airplane related questions that I've always wondered about.

1. This is silly, but it's always bugged me - on Bless It's Pointed Little Head, just after the band finishes "3/5 of a Mile..." and the crowd cheers, Grace says something to the audience that I've never been able to make out. It sounds as if she's saying "Stomp on them chorus" or "Sominem, of course!" Neither of which makes any sense (to me.) What IS she saying?

2. Reading the liner notes for the "Jefferson Airplane Loves You" box set one day, I saw that the songs "Things Are Better In the East" and "Don't Let Me Down" were both originally intended to be released on a Spring, '68 lp that was scrapped. The notes state that the record was going to be a collection of unreleased studio & live recordings. Anybody else know what was going to be on this lp and why it was scrapped?

3. I recalled once reading an interview with Grace Slick (circa 1969/70) in which she said that Little Richard (of all people) sat in on some studio recordings, and that he jammed with the band. None of that apparently ended up on a released album (I'm sure he would've been credited as a guest musician), but do any booteg recordings of these sessions exist?

Hey, welcome to the forum!!

Sadly I can only answer your first question! Grace says "Some o' them chords", as a reference to Jorma's amazingly fast fingerings.

Things are better in the east was ment to be released on Crown Of Creation but somehow wasn't, and the only thing I know about Don't Let Me Down is that it was sometimes performed live as a medley with Somebody To Love, sounds great.

Have a great day!

Bob.

Joey Covington invited Little Richard for the recording sessions of a song he wrote: "Bludgeon Of A Bluecoat". Allegedly, much to the surprise (and chagrin) of other Airplane members. The song was never released. You can find on this forum several posts begging where those recordings can be heard. No answers. And maybe it is a good thing that the tapes of those recordings are guarded so well. It is a lousy song, as some bootlegs of Airplane performances ca. 1970-1971 show." Gimme a C, gimme an O , gimme a P". aww.

Bludgeon Of A Bluecoat?? That sucks!! I was hoping for something crazy, like Saga of Sydney Spacepig or Would You Like A Snack, but that song really sucks!!

Mm, yeah, I've always kinda wanted to know what Grace was saying on Bless Its. Makes sense.
And I can assume it was probably scrapped because those songs had a lack of Grace- she was absent from those sessions (I read that in the Fenton book) and I don't remember reading what else could have been on the record. I know Greasy Heart had been written as early as late 1967. So had Share a Little Joke.
Bludgeon is a hit or miss. Some recordings I have of it, Joey does a ridiculous cartoony voice. Others aren't so bad. I have to say I do really like his song 'Whatever The Old Man Does'.
