Jefferson Starship Announce New ‘Tales From The Mothership’ Live CD

With a band name like Jefferson Starship, it's only natural that at some point, you should find a way to record a live CD in Roswell, New Mexico.

The San Francisco psychedelic veterans did exactly that, pointing their tour bus towards Roswell in 2009 to be part of the city's annual UFO Parade event. The Starship brought their "Sci-Fi Extravaganza" to Roswell for a show with special guests which included former Grateful Dead keyboardist Tom Constanten.

The city rolled out their space age red carpet in return, making the Starship members their "Grand Martians" for that year's parade, which meant that the members of Jefferson Starship got to ride on a special float in the parade...and presumably, they might have also gotten the keys to Area 51?

The concert portion of the event was recorded and filmed and is being issued now by Gonzo Multimedia as a four CD set featuring the entire concert, plus soundcheck and rehearsal recordings recorded prior to the show.

Along with Paul Kantner and David Frieberg, Jefferson Starship also features lead singer Cathy Richardson (who played Janis Joplin on Broadway in 'Love, Janis') and longtime band members Slick Aguilar, Chris Smith and Donny Baldwin. In addition to Grateful Dead's Tom Constanten, special guests include Pete Sears (the band's former bass & keyboard player on all their hits), Barry Sless (guitar & pedal steel with Phil Lesh & Friends), former lead vocalist Darby Gould and legendary folk artist Jack Taylor, one of Paul Kantner's early musical influences.

The show found the band running through a diverse set which of course included many of their legendary hits ("Somebody To Love," White Rabbit," Volunteers" and "Wooden Ships," to name a few) plus some material which hadn't ever been performed live.
