    I had this on vinyl but it was warped during the Great Heater Tragedy of 1980.



    According to wikipedia:
    In order to secure more radio airplay for the song, the full-length album version of "Miracles" (6 minutes, 52 seconds long) was cut by more than half its length for the single, which was released at a length of 3 minutes, 25 seconds. This edit was done not only for length, but to remove the sexual reference in the line "I had a taste of the real world when I went down on you, girl."

    RIP Paul.

    White Rabbit and Somebody to LOve were some of my first favorite songs. I had Red White and Blue stars and striped blue jean bell bottoms that I wore to their concert in SF in 1968.

    I feel ya. My large box of carefully alphabetized A-D LPs* had their covers soaked remorselessly during the freakish San Antonio Rain Deluge and Subsequent Undetected Roof Leak just after mid-century.

    Miracles has always been one of my all-time favorite songs. I had good taste in sixth grade!

    Wow, the same day. She sounds like a lovely person with great talent, and someone who knew her own limits and priorities which I definitely respect.

    Fly free Signe Toly Anderson

    Lots of pics here too.

    But by the time the album came out, Anderson had given birth to her first child and she left after a farewell concert at the Fillmore in October 1966.
    'You have to look at the priorities in your life, the reality in your life,' Anderson told radio station KGON in Portland in 2011, remembering the ordeals of bringing her baby on tour. 'I had to wait in the San Francisco airport in July of 1966 for 36 hours before we got on the airplane and flew to Chicago. All the diapers were gone.'

    'I don't regret having left,' she added.
    "Anderson was married twice, to Merry Prankster Jerry Anderson and to Michael Alois Ettlin, who died in 2011. She is survived by two children and three grandchildren."

    This was the only Jefferson Starship concert that I went to on March 9, 2007, (actually that same day, Brad Delp of the group Boston, committed suicide… so sad!! RIP Brad!)


    It was a really good concert. Quicksilver Messenger Service was also there and sang "Fresh Air."

    My fave song from the concert though was "Jane".

    One of my fave songs though is "Miracles".

    RIP Paul Kantner!
