Jefferson Airplane

I am way too nuts about this band.

Here they are performing Watch Her Ride as part of a 1968 Perry Como special on his show. Sure wish this was better quality - but beggars can't be choosers!

Can you believe the Monterey Pop Festival was nearly 51 years ago? Here the Airplane covers High Flying Bird.

It seems strange to see Jefferson Airplane on a Perry Como show—two such disparate worlds! :)

I managed to procure the Complete Monterey Pop from the Criterion Collection, and it includes over 2 hours of performances not in the film. This is one of them:

The grainy YouTube vid doesn't do it justice. High definition on a big screen is where it's at.

What a powerful, driving sound! What was the date of this performance?

The evening of June 17, 1967.

It really was! And there was so much beautiful folk rock coming out of that time, too.
