1976 was another banner year for the Jefferson Starship as their third platinum and gold plus smash album "Spitfire" raced to the top of the album charts as their previous hit album "Red Octopus" (Friday Music) accomplished a year before.
If you turned on your radio dial, it was definitely a summer of love that lasted all year long thanks to massive radio play on their hit songs "Crusin' " "With Your Love" and "St. Charles."
The core Jefferson Airplane founders were all in force with Grace Slick leading the band with her astounding vocals, Paul Kantner's dynamic guitar and vocals and Marty Balin's stellar vocal presence. Quicksilver's founder David Freiberg was back in command as well with his dynamic vocals and bass playing, plus Craig Chaquico on lead guitar, Pete Sears on keys and former Turtles and CSNY's Johnny Barbata on drums and vocals.
"Spitfire" continues to be the album of choice for millions of their fans worldwide. It hasn't been available on vinyl for decades, therefore Friday Music and Jefferson Starship are very pleased to announce the return of the dynamic rock masterwork "Spitfire"
Produced by Jefferson Starship and mastered impeccably by long time associate Joe Reagoso (Jefferson Airplane/Jefferson Starship/Hot Tuna) from the original Grunt Records tapes, this amazing album will be pressed for a very limited time on spectacular Psychedelic Orange vinyl.
We will also be presenting this fine album in the original LP cover art designed by the legendary Shusei Nagaoka, as well as including the super rare inner sleeve artwork and photos.
