Welcome to Beatles Plane 2008:
Hope things are going well. Any news to report?
Before we get to the cool rock and roll I wanted to dedicate the post to Pink Floyd member Richard Wright. It was confirmed today that he had passed away at age 65 from cancer. Details were not prevalent but it seems he had been ill a lot longer than what was made public. One of the interesting things about rock and roll is how even bands that sell records in great magnitudes such as Pink Floyd, Yes, and Deep Purple for examples have periods that are often overlooked. When the average person talks about the Floyd it is Dark Side Of The Moon. The early stuff with Syd is terrific to this day. A shame he is gone and how he burnt out so fast. The third Yes album is often thought of as their first. People forget the self-titled and the rather enjoyable Time And A Word. Deep Purple had 3 superlative records when Rod Evans handled the vocals “Shades”, “Book”, and the self-titled third release. Today if you have some time how about in memory of Rick Wright you listen to some very early Floyd and see if it isn’t something you would want in the CD collection. Almost the entire universe already has Rick represented with Dark Side, Wish You Were Here, Animals, and The Wall but there was plenty of great sounds before and some (not enough) with Syd.
This is a unique version of a John Lennon tune that is obviously one of the finest songs ever penned. The Jefferson Starship will do a lot with it. Check out the 2 fold approach.
First the music is played but the lyrics are from the “Redemption Song”.
Secondly you actually hear the music and words of Imagine blended together during the performance at the Brookdale Inn, Brookdale, California from July 18, of 2008. 7/18/08
It’s Beatles From The Vaults #95 and you have a front row seat. Enjoy the tune and the dayy. Thanks for boarding the flight.
Please spread the
The 2 new Jefferson projects have arrived!

Relax and have fun!
JEFFERSON STARSHIP– Great Society-
Take Me To A Circus Tent
I look forward to hearing you later!
The book is Take Me To A Circus Tent (The Jefferson Airplane Flight Manual) W/93 photos, 32 interviews, 543 pages, and a myriad of 5 star reviews!
Please remember at any moment on an Aircast it can be a rare memory from the Jefferson Airplane, Jefferson Starship, KBC, Wooden Ships, Marty Balin, Paul Kantner to name several. Maybe another picture previously unseen from the Rock Tent Vault sees daylight from Herb Greene or Don Aters.
Wishing you a great day,
