This live album was recorded on June 12th 2009 at the Del Mar
Fairgrounds in Del Mar California. The album captures this
legendary band at one of their most recent live concerts
celebrating Jefferson Airplane's appearance at the legendary
Woodstock Festival in August 1969. The band perform a number
of their classic songs including 'Somebody To Love', 'White
Rabbit', 'Eskimo Blue Day Volunteers' and 'The Other Side Of
This Life', all of which featured in Jefferson Airplane's set at
Woodstock forty years ago.
The album also features former Grateful Dead keyboardist Tom
Constanten on two Grateful Dead songs, 'Deal' and 'I Know You
Rider' which cements the relationship The Dead shared with the
Airplane and Starship during the sixties and seventies. It is a
relationship that survives to this day.
Jefferson Starship are currently touring the world as part of the
celebrations for the 40th anniversary of the Woodstock Festival.
