Jefferson Starship - Freedom At The Point Zero

Jefferson Starship - Freedom At The Point Zero
Authored By John Nicholson

This was their 1979 release and was the first after Grace Slick and Marty Balin had left. OK so it is a long way from the Jefferson Airplane days but it's still wonderful rock n roll and still has a psychedelic twist in songs like the title tracks sub title! Freedom at Point Zero (Climbing Tiger Mountain through the Sky) Oh yeah, we've all climbed a mountain through the sky when in certain altered states, haven't we?

They scored big with the single 'Jane' from this which was a hit all over Europe & peaked at #21 in UK and #14 on Billboard. (it made #6 on Cash Box - I'd love to know why there was a difference between Cashbox and Billboard and why Billboard became so definitive but I guess that's another story for another day)

Girl With The Hungry Eyes was also taken as a single and made #55 on Billboard (#70 on Cashbox)

The album peaked at #10 in USA and an impressive #22 in UK, considering that we were wrapped up in NWOBHM, new wave, Two Tone and any number of other passing trends, helped no doubt, by the success of Jane which has since become a rock radio staple.
