Recorded live at The Matrix in San Francisco in 1966. This wasn't released until 1968, a year after the group had disbanded. (According to Wikipedia, the club’s owners sold the tapes of Great Society live shows to Columbia in 1968 -- the delay was a result of having to get all the necessary releases.)



The Great Society was an exemplar of the “San Francisco Sound.” The version of “Somebody to Love” is slower, less intense than the Airplane versions I've heard (the song was written by Grace’s then-brother-in-law, Darby Slick). Grace sounds like she’s having real fun on the cover of Dylan’s “Outlaw Blues.”



“White Rabbit,” the other song destined to become an Airplane classic, has a long instrumental intro. This version, even minus the four-minute intro, somehow feels a little casual, rushed. It doesn't have the power of the Airplane version.

This is an amazing find on here. Fascinating to hear these earlier versions of the Jefferson Airplane anthems.
