Jefferson Airplane, Hot Tuna: The Forum, Inglewood CA

John Mendelssohn, Los Angeles Times, 4 November 1969

GLORIOUSLY RESPLENDENT in crushed velvet and faded Levis and backed by what was possibly the Glenn McKay troupe's most breathtaking light-show since Monterey, Jefferson Airplane, progenitor of the post-acid West Coast rock scene, turned in an only occasionally electrifying performance at the Inglewood Forum Halloween evening.

Total word count of piece: 318
