Jefferson Airplane: 1966-11-25 & 1966-11-26 San Francisco, CA (FLAC_SB_2 CD/Shows)

Here are two excellent recordings of two California Jefferson Airplane shows; both back-to-back nights.  These shows were shared separately, but too me, it makes a good 2 CD set.  Both recordings are sourced very close to the soundboard master as you can see from the linage below.  The stereo separation and sound quality are excellent and the shows are both great shows.  Personally, I like the second show (11/26) a little better.

I listened to both of these shows for the first time a few days ago.  While I'm very familiar with the band Jefferson Airplane, I've never collected a lot of their music.  But after listening to these two shows, I became more interested in keeping an eye out for shows I come across in the future.  In fact, I went out and located a great audience recording (from a few years after this show) of another show and plan on listening to it today.

In part, this music has a "Big Brother and the Holding Company (Janis Joplin)" type of sound and style in it to me.  I really like the old days sound with the left and right channel stereo separation too.  It seems that the late 1960's trough early 1970's recordings used this style much more than anything afterwards.  I'm guessing there was just two channel stereo at best being played in these days.

Check it out and see what you think about Jefferson Airplane...
