JEFFERSON AIRPLANE Bonus Tracks (1966-1971) – UPGRADED

Bonus TracksBonus Tracks (1966-1969)
Bless Their Pointed Little Heads

Since Bark was finally expanded last year, this seems like a good time to upgrade this post. Another round of bonus tracks, this time culled from the 2003/2004 Jefferson Airplane reissue series. As with some of the other bonus posts of late, I didn’t investigate any other reissues to search for hidden files, or include any rarities from box sets that weren’t considered bonuses. So, it’s a lazily prepared collection, but a good one nonetheless… better with the 2015 reissue of Bark. We’ve still got the 03/04 series in the archives if you need the full platters (Takes Off, Surrealistic Pillow, After Bathing At Baxter’s, Crown Of Creation, Bless Its Pointed Little Head, Volunteers, Bark), along with some rare session outtakes for Volunteers & Bark and Paul Kantner’s Blows Against The Empire. All for the clicking, HERE.

    A sweet and fine thing. Thanks! When these guys had it going on, for about four years there, they were among the best of the best. FYI, look for footage of them on Dick Cavett the day after Woodstock (if I recall correctly) with CSN&Y and Joni. A Youtube splendour to be sure.

    Thanks so much for these bonus tracks. It’s like living in an alternate universe where you can construct albums that don’t exist in the real one.

    Thank you, Willard! The Airplane is probably the prime example of a band whose albums I’ve bought and played a lot over the years, and whose outtakes and alt. versions I want to hear, but not badly enough to buy them.
    (Part of this chintziness is due to the amount of dough I had to lay out to get copies of the original l.p.’s, when new, that thanks to RCA’s innovative flexi-disc technology, were SO thin, the stylus would try to play both sides at the same time.)
    What a cool, strange band. Looking forward to hearing all these track! Again, thanks, Willard!

      Yeah, I think my first contact with those paper thin Dyna-Flex records was via a Guess Who LP. I thought it was defective. Thanks for commenting.

    It is my opinion that Jefferson Airplane was the most underrated band in the history of rock and roll. Think about it. They pretty much all could sing. everyone could write songs and the instrumentation was top notch. The Spencer Dryden drum piece at the beginning of Bless its pointed little head still gives me chills.

    Awesome shares, many thanks. Do you happen to have The Great Society kicking around?

    Well let us not overlook the fact that the original lead singer Signe Anderson died the same day as Kantner.

    Thanks, Cap’n. And folks, don’t overlook the Jefferson Airplane “Thing” link at the top of the page, an entertaining listen on its own terms…
