iTunes Review

The Woodstock Experience couples Jefferson Airplane’s landmark 1969 studio album Volunteers with their legendary performance at the 1969 Woodstock Festival, where their Saturday night headlining appearance became an early Sunday morning performance with the sun breaking out for a new day. There’s no sign of a Sunday morning come down here. The band plays ferociously from the first quaking moments of “The Other Side of This Life” into its most established hit, “Somebody to Love.” Six of the tracks are previously unreleased, including a 21-minute version of “Wooden Ships” and a 15-minute jam on “The Ballad of You & Me & Pooneil.” The extended jams put a greater focus on guitarist (and future Hot Tuna leader) Jorma Kaukonen, whose incendiary guitar work brilliantly matches the anarchic, political tone of the material. There’s a punkish energy to the band’s brutal charge. “3/5 Of a Mile In 10 Seconds” serves up a ferocity made more implicit by the banshee wails of singers Grace Slick and Marty Balin. The group was surely primed for revolution of any sort.

Customer Reviews

I've been waiting over 30 years for this.

Ever since I was 16 years old and first got into the Airplane in 1978, I wondered what the band's Woodstock set list comprised of. Many people just thought it consisted of the songs already released from the show. Now when I see the complete set list in 2009, the Airplane continue to amaze me! I have never heard or seen them play "House At Pooneil Corners" anywhere live and they played it at Woodstock! This whole show illustrates the band's finest hour as a live band. As for the CD configuration, I too was frustrated with the sequencing but it was nothing my ipod playlist couldn't fix. I now have the entire performance in one place in a playlist.

Over-produced and Ruined

The songs recorded live at Woodstock are hugely disappointing. The remastering is terrible. They removed all the crowd noise, stage talk, and on Volunteers, removed Grace Slick exclaiming "Good Morning, People!" It makes the live songs sound sterile and empty. Some of the other Woodstock Experience albums are OK, but I can't recommend this one. As for the studio portion of this album, that sounds good. It still sounds like it was recorded in the 60's, which is a good thing, but somewhat cleaner and the bass comes through more clearly.

Biography

Formed: 1965 in San Francisco, CA

Genre: Rock

Years Active: '60s, '70s, '80s

Jefferson Airplane was the first of the San Francisco psychedelic rock groups of the 1960s to achieve national recognition. Although the Grateful Dead ultimately proved more long-lived and popular, Jefferson Airplane defined the San Francisco sound in the 1960s, with the acid rock guitar playing of Jorma Kaukonen and the soaring twin vocals of Grace Slick and Marty Balin, scoring hit singles and looking out from the covers of national magazines. They epitomized the drug-taking hippie ethos as well...
