Album Review

Live in Monterey is a somewhat misleading title. While five songs from the Jefferson Airplane's landmark performance at the 1967 Monterey Pop Festival are included, most of the album is a grab bag consisting primarily of studio outtakes and rarities. The meager liner notes leave no clue as to when these performances were made. Tracks from the June 17, 1967, Monterey show are scattered throughout this album for no apparent reason. The confusing title aside, the playing is spirited, particularly in live versions of "It's No Secret" and "This Is My Life," which feature outstanding vocals by Marty Balin. The sound quality is good, considering that the performances were captured nearly 35 years ago. Some of the studio outtakes are less than pristine and sound like rough demos. But Airplane completists will no doubt value "What You're Askin'" and "Would You Love Me," rockers that never made any of the band's official releases and have been available only as bootlegs or in low-budget import albums. The Jefferson Airplane's breakthrough appearance at Monterey consisted of eight songs, and is available in its entirety on Live at the Monterey Festival.
