Album Review

There have been two American Starship compilations prior to BMG Heritage's 2004 Platinum & Gold Collection — 1991's Ten Years and Change, which also covered some Jefferson Starship recordings, and the 1993 budget release Best of Starship, which didn't have their biggest hit, "We Built This City." So, there was a good reason to release this Platinum & Gold Collection, since there hadn't been a good collection to focus on Starship-only recordings, and this fits the bill quite nicely, since it contains all of their hits outside their final charting single, "Good Heart," which scraped the bottom of the charts in 1991. In other words, it has everything that anyone could want — namely, the big three singles of "We Built This City," "Nothing's Gonna Stop Us Now," and "Sara," plus lesser-known (but still relatively popular) hits like "It's Not Over ('Til It's Over)" and "Tomorrow Doesn't Matter Tonight." While this music has dated over the years — few artists capture the sound of synthesized, anthemic late-'80s mainstream rock better than Starship — anybody looking for the group's hits, either as a nostalgia trip or as a dutiful fan of Jefferson Airplane, should turn here.

Yup

As a 12 year old boy when Mannequin came out, I have to admit Kim Cattrall basically jump-started me into puberty.

Biography

Formed: 1984 in San Francisco, CA

Genre: Rock

Years Active: '80s, '90s

Starship was a band created by the settlement of a lawsuit. Notwithstanding this curious beginning, the group went on to a series of hits in the mid-'80s, including the chart-toppers "We Built This City," "Sara," and "Nothing's Gonna Stop Us Now" in a polished, mainstream pop/rock style before splitting up in the early '90s. Starship was the remaining sextet of musicians that, with Paul Kantner, had made up Jefferson Starship until the rhythm guitarist/singer's exit from that band in June 1984....
