Original Album Classics
It seems, as with other volumes in Sony BMG Europe's Original Albums Classics series, that the label has assembled the very best full-lengths that Jefferson Starship cut -- all the records contained here scored at least one hit single, and in the case of at least four, more than one. While Dragon Fly and Red Octopus had hits -- such as "Ride the Tiger" from the former and "Miracles" from the latter, it was Spitfire that put them over the top with "With Your Love" and "Switchblade." These are likely appeal to the older fans of this band, but the '80s were kind to Jefferson Starship, too, with Earth and Freedom at Point Zero. These recordings contained singles such as "Count on Me" and "Jane," respectively. The first three albums in this set were recorded pretty much as albums with the '70s mode of assemblage considered, while the latter two focused more on hits. Either way, fans will find this set -- with all remastered recordings and bonus tracks galore -- to be attractive and affordably priced.
