Jefferson Starship grew out of the San Francisco band Jefferson Airplane. The band released their debut album Dragonfly in early 1974 and since that time the band has enjoyed massive success on the world stage both with albums and concert appearances.
Rather like fellow San Francisco band The Grateful Dead, Jefferson Starship find themselves in the twenty first century with as much interest in their career as they had in the sixties and seventies. The band still led by founder member Paul Kantner and joined occasionally by fellow founder member Marty Balin still tour regularly and record occasionally. The band however does have a large archive of live recordings made over the years and stored away in the vault. Similar to the Grateful Dead’s “Dick’s Picks” series, in early 2008 Jefferson Starship launch their own official live archive series Mick’s Picks. The live recordings have been chosen and curated by the bands current manager Michael Gaiman.
This three disc recording comes from a series of European dates played by the band in the summer of 2005. The line up for this performance was; founder Paul Kantner- vocals, 12-string electric guitars; fellow Jefferson Starship member David Freiberg- vocals, acoustic guitar; Diana Mangano- vocals; Mark "Slick" Aguilar- vocals, electric lead guitar; Chris Smith- keyboards, bass; Prairie Prince- drums; and special guest former Grateful Dead keyboardist Tom Constanten- vocals, piano. Material performed at this concert included a special rendition of the Grateful Dead classics New Minglewood Blues, I Know You Rider, Deal and Dark Star alongside Jefferson Airplane and Jefferson Starship classics such as; Somebody To Love, You Me & Pooneil, White Rabbit, Somebody To Love and Jane.As with all the live recordings in the series this live album comes directly from the Jefferson Starship archive and is overseen by Michael Gaiman.Disc 1
