Jefferson Starship’s legendary platinum plus album “Red Octopus” offered a very popular approach to their already successful formula as Jefferson Airplane with alumni Grace Slick, Paul Kanter and Marty Balin on board for this second venture. Also along for the meteoric ride were Quicksilver’s legendary David Freiberg (bass/vocals), Johnny Barbata on drums (CSN&Y/Turtles), Papa John Creach (violin), Pete Sears (keys/vocals) and Craig Chaquico (lead guitar/vocals).The incredible musicianship and hit song writing of the team proved to be the solid bond to bring historic commercial success to this legendary band.
Released in 1975, their masterwork “Red Octopus” became a big hit, thanks to the help of multiple format radio hits like their new hit single “Miracles.” The multi-format radio smash composed by Jefferson Airplane co-founder Marty Balin would go on to become one of the biggest songs of the year (Top #3 Chart Record), as well as becoming the biggest single of Jefferson Starship’s career.
The magic only begins as more incredible classic rock fare abounds with the wonderful rocker “Play On Love.” Grace Slick hammers out one of finest performances vocally ever on this tune, and the band truly excels with the incredible keyboard work of Pete Sears and the stellar electric violin artistry of Papa John Creach.
