Check out the rock genre New Releases

JEFFERSON AIRPLANE...Thirty Seconds Over Winterland  (1973)
Thirty Seconds Over Winterland was released 40 years ago in April 1973.  It reached number 52 on the U.S. Billboard album charts.  This is a live album recorded in 1972.  I recommend it with a 2 1/2 out of 5 stars.  I have never really got into Airplane.  They always sound like they can't sing in harmony and this album is no different.  However, the lack of good vocals doesn't take away from their playing.  They can jam!  Just check out the 11 minute "Feels So Good."  It's a great track.  But then check out "When The Earth Moves Again."  Man, they sound terrible. I thought "Trial By Fire" was a good track with some cool guitar. To sum it all up, this album would rock if it were all instrumental
