When Jefferson Airplane morphed successfully into Jefferson Starship in the mid-1970s, their musicianship, and recorded output was enthusiastically received and was a very important career move in the continuing story of these Bay Area superstars.
Red Octopus surely helped award them fame even further as this amazing Jefferson Starship LP went to number one and soon became one of the many platinum plus ventures for this much-loved and respected band. Their new formula worked tremendously as this release featured a plethora of chart topping hits like "Miracles," "Play On Love," "Fast Buck Freddie," and "There Will Be Love."
The band was rich with rock ‘n’ roll history, consisting of Airplane mainstays Paul Kantner, Grace Slick, Marty Balin, plus later Airplane alumnus David Freiberg (Quicksilver), Papa John Creach, and Johnny Barbata (CSN+Y, Turtles), as well as new additions Craig Chaquico and Pete Sears. Jefferson Starship truly delivered the goods with Red Octopus as this album went on to quickly become a classic rock masterpiece!
