JEFFERSON STARSHIP
Edwardsville 1975 [DimeTravel, 1CD]

kneesfudd noted:

- Very fine AUD.
- Warts: Repaired dullspots and dropouts but surely missed a few. Some AUD talk at times but mostly lowered. #01 fades in about 20secs late and 1st 80secs has noisy AUD and clapping was only minimised. #05 split second tape glitch near start. Minimised most near mike clapping as well as the idiot whistler. #09 cuts after ~1&1/2mins.
- Flo & Eddie was the opening act.
- This is clearly incomplete and very possibly “Blows” didn’t open. Just before #07 someone near the mike says, “more than 1/2 over” which isn’t logical 30mins into the set.
- The Festival went on for several weeks from the looks of it.
- Tho’ usually listed, “Home”, the album bit ‘tween “Hijack” and “Have You Seen The Stars Tonite?” wasn’t played in the 1974/75 live “Blows” suites.
- This was the “Red Octopus” tour. The album was recorded in February and released on June 13, 1975.

Lineage:
unknown mono recording equipment > master mono tape > not many analog only generations > unknown low generation Maxell XLII-90 cassette, Dolby B on.
Playback 2017-03-27: unknown low generation Maxell XLII-90 cassette on Nakamichi 680ZX cassette deck, Dolby B on, azimuth adjusted for individual tape, heads cleaned & demagnetized > Sony Linear PCM Recorder PCM-M10 (LPCM 44.10kHz/16bit WAV files) > computer > Audacity [normalisation to remove DC offset, channel/phase alignment, fades, manual one-at-a-time glitch, bump, pop, click, dropout & dullspot repairs, volume adjustments, -1.8% pitch (speed) fix with single pass after frequency analysis & with pitchpipe verification, NO equalisation or noise reduction] > CD Wave (track splits) > flacs (Trader’s Little Helper)

DimeTravel 333: Thanks to the original taper and traders! Thanks to DIMER gv0000 for his info assistance. It’s a pretty nice sounding recording and performance. A very rocked out version of “Blows”, “Hijack” into the bass solo is way heavy. “Blows” has much less of the hesitancy of the previous year, it’s played with dynamic confidence.

  5. Hey Anti, tell me again why we are superior. I forget. Then tell me again about the rabbits.

    By Derrick on May 7, 2020

  6. Twernt me above . Nuther fake

    By U L E on May 7, 2020

  7. The Jew is the vermin and scum of society. There were many anti semitic remarks and painted swastikas on 5 synagogues tonight. The best part was their were Jews inside

    By David Duke on May 7, 2020

  8. We are in a Darwinian society and the Jew will not survive this pandemic. This will be better than zyklon B

    By David Duke on May 7, 2020

  9. For all you brainiacs that have the IQ of my shoe size, watch American Greed. I would venture to say that 90% of the episodes have to deal with jews trying to outwit, outmaneuver and rob decent white christians of all their savings. When you hear Ponzi, think Bernie the goniff Madoff. Every other episode deals with a jew banker, stock broker, jeweler mortgage broker ripping off the Christians

    By David Duke on May 7, 2020

  10. Paranoia strikes deep. Calm down and watch cartoons for a while.

    By Derrick Von Zipper on May 7, 2020

  11. Explain a Darwinian society you numb skull. Did you descend from apes & iguanas? Or were you wiped out in a zyklone? You think you got talent by copy & pasting but when left alone to type you say things like “their were Jews inside.” Learn to type the kings English mother superior.

  12. Rumor has it Grace prefers Big Uns

    By U L E on May 7, 2020

  13. DD , don’t forget the motherfuckin coons . Hate Jew bastards, but the fuckin coons is fuckin our white bitches and makin hi Yeller babies. Cause of the coons the white race ain’t gonna be around much longer

    By Derrick on May 7, 2020

  14. Agree with both David and derrick.

    By HHH on May 7, 2020

  15. Jew scum like Weinstein, Epstein and Madoff pretty much defines the Hebrews .

    By HHH on May 7, 2020

  16. And yes all of the inbreeding between black apes and whites is very disturbing. Black apes are violent animals. Think OJ Simpson.

    By HHH on May 7, 2020

  17. Triple h , you might be a nutless bitch , but you gots a point

    By Derrick on May 7, 2020

  18. The Starship were a neutered version of the airplane. More pop than rock, less cutting edge . In other words , not nearly as good .

    By Pat Grooms on May 7, 2020

  19. I had a girl crush on Grace . I’m a straight gal who loved giant cocs on my rock stars , but I would have definitely gone gay for Grace . Unfortunately she said when I asked her to join in with me when she saw me fucking Paul Kantner and Marty Balin backstage in 75.

    By Bebe on May 7, 2020

  20. Kraftwerk Florian Schneider RIP– synthesizers, background vocals, vocoder, computer-generated vocals, acoustic and electronic flute, live saxophone, percussion, electric guitar, violin (1970–2008, died 2020)

    By ScarRad on May 7, 2020

  21. Marty and Paul both had Giant Cocs , for those interested.

    By Bebe on May 7, 2020

  22. Excuse me BoogerMan. I descended from your whore mothers womb you imbecilic jew fucking moron and your father was the pimp that raped her. Take your rhetoric and put a blow touch up your ass.

    By David Duke on May 7, 2020

  23. I love disco now

    By Derrick on May 7, 2020

  24. HHH you redneck white boys know all about inbreeding. Don’t forget to give your sister a Mother’s Day card.

    By Mark on May 7, 2020

  25. I love to suck like a butterfly and swing like a bee

    By Mark on May 7, 2020

  26. A nigger is a jew turned inside out.

    By David Duke on May 7, 2020

  27. Do not be racist; be like Tony Pizza. He’s an Italian plumber, who was made by the Japanese, speaks English, looks like a Mexican, jumps like a black man, and grabs coins like a Jew!

    By David Duke on May 7, 2020

  28. A black Jewish boy runs home from school one day and asks his father, “Daddy, am I more Jewish or more black?” The dad replies, “Why do you want to know, son?” “Because a kid at school is selling a bike for $50 and I want to know if I should jew him down to $40 or just steal it!”

    By David Duke on May 7, 2020

  29. A nigger walks into a bar with a parrot on his shoulder and asks for a beer. The bartender brings a beer and notices the parrot on his shoulder and says, “Hey that’s really neat. Where did you get it?” The parrot responds, “In the jungle, there’s millions of them.

    By David Duke on May 7, 2020

  30. How do you get the little nigger kids to stop jumping on the bed? Put Velcro on the ceiling. How do you get them down? Tell the Mexican kids it’s a piñata.

    By David Duke on May 7, 2020

  31. Q: What do you call white people running down a hill?
    A: An avalanche.
    Q: What do you call spics running down a hill?
    A: A mudslide.
    Q: What do you call niggers running down a hill?
    A: A jail break.

    By David Duke on May 7, 2020

  32. This guy DD is a pissa. I wish I could suck him off

    By Bebe on May 7, 2020

  33. Q: What’s the difference between a naked white woman and a naked nigger woman?
    A: One is on the cover of Playboy and the other is on the cover of National Geographic.

    By David Duke on May 7, 2020

  34. Bebe , you ain’t kiddin . If David Duke wasn’t such a fag , he might take you up on that offer . Plus, he don’t have no dic , since his uncle Jethro done cut that off when he was a kid

    By Derrick on May 7, 2020

  35. The afterlife will not be kind to David Duke. That’s a shame, especially when you consider he couldn’t make anything of himself in this life.

    By Mark on May 7, 2020

  36. :-) The Jew filth has spoken. Thats the mentality of the lowly subversive jew bastard. Always resorting to the lowest common denominator. I’m a fag I’m a red neck whatever. The bottom line is Im not a Jew. Y’all just too stupid to see how the Jew is stealing all your money with a smile.

    By David Duke on May 7, 2020

  37. The Jew will squeeze a penny and make it fart. The Jew will pimp out your family to make a buck. The Jew is evil and not to be trusted. The Jew needs to be eradicated. The Jew will make coon daddy a slave. The jew must be exposed for what they really are. They will suck your blood dry.

    By David Duke on May 7, 2020

  38. From the comments, it looks like HHH is the only one that has any sense. He understands the jew problem. Weinstein, Epstein and Madoff. Like I said before the majority of nitwits on this site have the IQ of my shoe size. I wonder how many of you mental midgets knew that Marty Balin aka Martyn Jerel Buchwald was a Jew

    By David Duke on May 7, 2020

  39. The majority of this group were a bunch of Jewish subversives. Grace Slick is a Jew aka Grace Barnett Wingman. The Jefferson Starship should be called the jefferson jewship

    By David Duke on May 7, 2020

  40. I’ll ask all you idiots again the same fucking question. Why are these musicians afraid to reveal their true biblical name. Because they know its all about the mighty shekel. If the world knows that these musicians are filthy jews, no one would buy the music. The jew owns the recording industry. Why bother to explain. Most of you have your heads up your culo

    By David Duke on May 7, 2020

  41. @ David Duke… I take it you don’t like Jews. Am I wrong?

    By David Jewke on May 7, 2020

  42. To many fakes and assholes . There all to stupid to know how dum they look

    By Derrick on May 7, 2020

  43. Hey Derrick, I’m getting into Drum ‘n Bass

    By THE ANTICHRIST on May 8, 2020

  44. Thank you Big O Amigos. Be well. James

    By James Smith on May 8, 2020

  45. Q: Why do you wrap hamsters in duct tape?

    A: So they won’t explode when you fuck them.

    By David Duke on May 8, 2020

  46. More fakes . They got nothin better to do with there time . I’m so fuckin sick of this carp

    By Derrick on May 8, 2020

  47. Oy vey. Never have I seen a bigger bunch of askhoul in my life than this place. This website is filled with idyots. All they talk about is the schmeckle. Is this a music site or a hate site. Seems to be much jew baiting in here

    By The Rabbi on May 8, 2020

  48. All the comments here were made by me. Im so fucking bored jackin off to gay porn and stayin cooped up is driving me crazy. I need a nice big black schlong up my poop chute

    By Mark on May 8, 2020

  49. Mark, I’m so hot for you right now.

    By HHH on May 8, 2020

  50. David Duke’s mom is on granny gangbang . Damn what a whore

    By Derrick on May 8, 2020

  51. Anti and DD, I never realized before that the Airplane/ Starship was a band of motherfuckin, Dic suckin , coon lovin Jew bastards. This is hard to accept man . Especially Grace . Fuck this pisses me off

    By Derrick on May 9, 2020

  53. I ain’t said nothin bad about DD’s mom

    By Derrick on May 9, 2020

  54. I was at this concert in 5th row, Blows Suite did indeed open the show, This is far from complete as total concert was two hours and two hours and twenty minutes long! Flo and Eddie opened with a hilarious 45 minute opening set. I worked as a volunteer member of the tent crew in 1975 and a paid employee in 1976 for the summer long MRF, which began in 1969 and ended after the 1980 season. The festival held on the campus of SIU-Edwardsville presented 4 to 5 concerts a week, ranging from blues, rock, country, classical, jazz, soul, and theater productions. One night would be Benny Goodman, the next Marshall Tucker Band the next The Osmonds, the next Jim Stafford, the next Linda Ronstadt, the next The Spinners…a variety of artists performed there over the years. There is even a book published, and in the 1976 picture of the tent crew, I am in it! It was a wonderful outdoor concert venue.
