Return To The Matrix (2010)

Return To The Matrix (2010)

You are obscure and not very well known; neither do you contain the best performances. However, you are a “must have” for any collection. No true Airplane fan would overlook you as being part of the discography.

On August 13, 1965, Jefferson Airplane made their debut at the Matrix in San Francisco, and the club, founded by Airplane singer Marty Balin, was also having its opening that night. Two and a half years later, on February 1, 1968, Jefferson Airplane returned to the Matrix to play a show. “…The result is an intimate show in which the band seems to be performing in front of friends; Balin and singerGrace Slick often seem to be exchanging remarks with people at the front tables. Relaxed and comfortable the musicians may be, but they turn in a typical concert for the period, which found the band in its prime.” (.All music review)
