Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
Real Gone's double-disc collection Live in Central Park, NYC May 12, 1975 finds Jefferson Starship in a transitional phase. They had only one LP to the Jefferson Starship name -- 1974's Dragon Fly; Red Octopus, the album that firmly established this incarnation as its own entity, had been completed but not released -- so they were still relying heavily on the Jefferson Airplane catalog for this 15-song set, closing out the concert with "White Rabbit," "Sweeter Than Honey," "Somebody to Love," and "Volunteers."
