JEFFERSON STARSHIP - Gold (1991)
Jefferson Starship is an American rock band from San Francisco, California that evolved out of the group Jefferson Airplane following the departure of bassist Jack Casady and guitarist Jorma Kaukonen. The band has undergone several major changes in personnel and genres through the years while retaining the same Jefferson Starship name. The band name was retired in 1985, but picked up again in the early '90s by a Paul Kantner-led revival of the group.
Gold is a 1979 compilation album by Jefferson Starship. The tracks come from their 1974 - 1978 albums, Dragon Fly, Red Octopus, Spitfire, and Earth. The album originally had a shortened single version of "Miracles"; early pressings of the CD repeated this, but later editions had the full-length version from the album Red Octopus. The original record release also contained a 7-inch 45 RPM single, "Light the Sky on Fire", that was recorded for Star Wars Holiday Special, along with an extra track from Dragon Fly. This single is included in the later CD releases as tracks 6 and 12. "Light the Sky on Fire" reached #66 and Gold reached #20 on the Billboard charts.
