Welcome to the Jefferson  Rock Central 2009:

Sounds of yesteryear are ringing out proudly.  How are you feeling?

Common sense is something humans often overlook.  The local shopping center had not one spec of snow in the parking area today but the entire walkway was full of enough ice to become part of Antarctica.

On to rock and roll land!!  Cool stuff from the vaults.

How about a Marty Balin rehearsal as well as…

We fly back to Redding, California during May 5th of 1995

5/5/95

Jefferson Starship on stage with Marty Balin, Paul Kantner, and Jack Casady:

Papa John (Marty wrote this tune dedicated to the late Papa John Creach)

The Other Side Of This Life (A Fred Neil classic done here with a Jack Casady bass-solo!)

Marty Balin rehearsal with Bodacious D.F. from 1973 The Witcher

Enjoy. Got to go rock and roll.

Please board the Rock Tent Jet here for great Jefferson sounds:

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

word:

The 2 new Jefferson projects have arrived!

Thanks as always!

Relax and have fun!

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,

Welcome to the Great Rock Society:

How are things going? I hope all is great. Tuesday was a typical fantastic day in Airplane Land but I must point out that it would be nice if a company with a zillion dollar budget would have customer service available via phone and not email only. I have had an issue with a specific outfit for 15 days and it isn’t that hard to resolve. How about the Yankees giving up on the season? Monday was one of the worst performances from the team in decades.

Rock and Roll is why we are on the flight and it is GREAT! We go to the Matrix, San Francisco, California. The city by the bay has given us the rare 1966 Great Society live track:

Down Home Girl

Cool things from the Rock Tent Vault.

A large thank you to an executive of the Artists First Radio Network for giving me an hour of their time last night to talk about the books on the Jefferson Airplane- Take Me To A Curus Tent and the Jefferson Starship- Have You Seen The Stars Tonite, as well as the lectures with one time Grateful Dead member Tom Constanten and America’s Rock & Roll Photographer Don Aters. We even discussed Don’s rare rock and roll pictures for sale from the last 40 years. Thank you to those that listened. For Tony, my your mom feel better!

Got to go, rock and roll!

How do you feel?  It’s Friday! 

Welcome aboard our corner of the globe. A fantastic day outside and it was as well in 1972 as the Airmachine fly’s back to hear the Jefferson Airplane perform in the park.  Not any park but Central. 

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. 

Hope Friday will be fantastic and I look forward to hearing you later on as our flight returns to Rock And Roll Island. 

All the best,

Today

Welcome to very early Friday: 

Thanks for flying with your host Craig Fenton.  How are things? 

Two really strong ones from the Airmachine as we go back to 1989 for the reunion and the old Airplane favorites are part of the journey.  It’s a great summer night August of 89 and after 17 years the J.A. will take flight for a handful of US shows which started in Milwaukee, Wisconsin and ended in Washington, D.C. 

The memories linger forever! Joined by Peter Kaukonen, Tim Gorman, Randy Jackson, and Kenny Aronoff the plane has plenty of fuel and is flying nicely.  Enjoy! 

I’ll look forward to hearing you later on. 

Have a fantastic day! 

All the best,

craig

Hello and welcome to Thursday night: 

How are you feeling this evening?  Have a cool one from the vault as we head to 1989 to fly over a boat that may not be the most secure but is never going away.

 Please remember to look at the right side of the page and enjoy the rare Jack Casady photo from 1966.  Herb Greene took a gem of a shot and it has not seen the light of day until today! Please check the myriad of updates the past month.  From rare photos to music from the Rock Tent Vaults, it is all there for you fine passengers. I have to head back inside the tent to pay my rent but I’ll look for you later on. 

Have a fantastic Friday,
