The Jefferson Airplane Flight Manual
Craig says he saw an opportunity to present the Jefferson Airplane in a new direction. The music is the star. The book contains 93 almost-never-in- print photos mostly furnished by Herb Greene (the photographer who shot the cover for the "Surrealistic Pillow" record) and Don Aters (the best friend of legendary promoter Chet Helms). The two rarest are from the early days. One image is pre-Jack Casady and Skip Spence; the other is signed by Paul Kantner as Paul Airplane. The result is a 543-page encyclopedia of information.
"Take Me To A Circus Tent" for the first time accurately describes 121 live Airplane performances (1965-1972), the complete 1989 reunion, and the final flight to the Rock Hall of Fame (1996). Aboard the plane is a detailed look at 60 unreleased songs, demos, and rehearsals, your captain presents 266 questions and answers regarding the Airplane and spin-off bands, and proffers the largest interview (not quotes) segment of an American rock and roll book the mind could recall with 32!
