By any chance is there a live version of the song? One of my favorite songs on the pillow album

Not to my knowledge. Jorma's acoustic guitar shines on that cut.

A favorite ive cut from that album for me is Comin' Back To Me featuring the whole band. Marty singing and fingerpicking the guitar, Jorma on lead, Jack bass, Spencer on drums using brushes, Paul on acoustic 12 string and backing vocals, Grace on recorder and backing vocals.

The performance is rather rough (Jorma is out of tune) but I love the arrangement. Paul adds that deep, dark tone to Marty's light, lyrical touch.

Probably one of the few times they played acoustically on stage (Marty and Paul on acoustic) as Jefferson Airplane.

Jorma is playing electric guitar on How Do You Feel. I thought that was Paul's acoustic; it sounds like a 12-string to me.

Where is this full version of Comin Back to Me? The only versions I've ever heard are on Surrealistic Pillow and Jefferson Airplane Loves You.

I was referring to the JA Loves You box set, the live cut of them playing the song. It's very crude but I think that arrangement (not performance) is possibly what they had in mind for Pillow since the cut that's on there with Marty, Jack, Grace and Garcia was really just a demo, to get it on tape, I don't think it was intended to be the master cut but afterwards decided to go with it (my guess).

Paul doesn't fingerpick to my knowledge, he's a flatpicker and that clean, intricate fingerstyle acoustic 6 string playing on HDYF is definitely Jorma (IMO).

Sorry Angel, no luck.
This song was never played live.
See Craig Fenton "Take Me To A Circus Tent" page 33:
'Not documented to have been played live
D.C.B.A.-25
How Do You Feel".

I have the live version of DCBA as well; November 25th, 1966 at the Fillmore.

Haven't come across any live version of How Do You Feel
