Jefferson Airplane - O’Keefe Centre, Toronto 1967 CD
The Airplane and the Dead reaped maximum exposure in the press and on radio and TV during their 1967 Canadian visit. Their free performance at Toronto City Hall Square a week prior to their O‘Keefe concerts (July 31-5 August) would draw crowds estimated at from 10,000 to 40,000, figures exceeded only by the wordage covering the event in the three daily papers. While the press scratched their heads and scrambled to comprehend this new form of youthful rebellion, this was undoubtedly a peak period for Jefferson Airplane, who had found momentum and international fame after the addition of former Great Society singer Grace Slick. Media coverage had catapulted Somebody To Love and White Rabbit into the psychedelic heavens. While Monterey was behind them (by about 2 months), Airplane were on a commercial roll when they appeared in Canada to serve up highlights from the first 3 albums and more.
Timeline revisits this historic performance from one of the most iconic bands in the psychedelic era. Presenting a fully restored and professionally remastered original CBC-FM broadcast with background notes and timeline photos
