Jefferson Airplane Live at the Monterey Festival

Saturday, Jun 17 1967...the Airplane at the Monterey Pop Festival...there are some great fan debates about this set online, ranging from "disappointment" to "amazing"! Ha.

You can't argue with their setlist for the show: Somebody To Love, The Other Side Of This Life, White Rabbit, High Flying Bird, Today, She Has Funny Cars,Young Girl Sunday Blues, Ballad Of You And Me And Pooneil...

And you definitely cannot find fault with the blazing version of Ballad Of You And Me And Pooneil...

The Airplane were an interesting act...they are one of my favorite bands but they sound so dated...and live they could definitely bring on the noise...I still keep up with Kantner, to the point of going to see him when he comes around, which tends to be every year or so...can't resist the cranky old bastard...
