Coming together in the fervent folk scene of San Francisco, Marty Balin (vocals), Signe Toly Anderson (vocals), Paul Kantner (guitar) and Jorma Kaukonen (guitar) played their first shows as the Jefferson Airplane in 1965. As their performance chops developed, they continued to fine tune the band, adding Jack Casady (bass) and Skip Spence (drums). This lineup quickly built a loyal following around town, aided in no small part by San Francisco Chronicle jazz critic Ralph J. Gleason´s glowing reviews of their live sets. By December of that year, they had signed to RCA Records for a then-huge $25,000 advance and began recording their debut album, Jefferson Airplane Takes Off. Because the group had not performed outside of their hometown, RCA pressed a relatively modest 15,000 copies in mono to launch the album in September 1966. Such was their popularity in the Bay area that 10,000 albums were sold in San Francisco alone, requiring the label to repress in larger quantities. However, the label executives had already expressed displeasure with some of the album´s song lyrics. Balin and Kantner´s ´´Runnin´ ´Round This World´´ contained the line ´´the nights I´ve spent with you have been fantastic trips´´ which the label belated interpreted as a drug reference. Furthermore, they bristled at the lines ´´you shut your door, you know where´´ and ´´don´t tell me you want money´´ in ´´Let Me In´´ and also took issue with the lyric ´´flowers that sway as you lay under me´´ from ´´Run Around.´´ Asserting its clout, RCA deleted ´´Runnin´ ´Round This World´´ and had the group record alternate lyric lines for ´´Let Me In´´ and ´´Run Around´´ for subsequent pressings of the album. As any collector would rightly assume, this made original mono editions with ´´Runnin´ ´Round This World´´ and the uncensored versions of ´´Let Me In´´ and ´´Run Around´´ highly sought-after artifacts. Setting aside the controversy, the album is a brilliant folk rock document, largely written by the group members themselves. Well-chosen covers include John D. Loudermilk´s ´´Tobacco Road´´ and Dino Valenti´s ´´Let´s Get Together,´´ recorded years before it became a hit for the Younbgbloods under the title ´´Get Together.´´ Balin and Anderson´s vocals blend seamlessly and Kaukonen, Kantner and Casady acquit themselves admirably. Only Skip Spence, who was really a singer-guitarist and not a drummer, needed backup in the studio. That assistance came from session drummer Spencer Dryden, who would soon join the group upon Spence´s departure. Of course, Spence subsequently formed Moby Grape, giving his departure a truly happy ending. Anderson also announced that she was leaving the group after giving birth to her first daughter in May 1966. Luckily, the band had only to look to their frequent opening act, The Great Society, for a new female vocalist but that is a story for another album. The next one, in fact. After years of being a high-dollar, hard-to-find collectible, Sundazed comes to the consumer´s rescue with this exact reissue of the ORIGINAL, UNCENSORED MONO EDITION of Jefferson Airplane Takes Off. Sourced from the RCA analog mono masters, pressed on 180-gram vinyl and packaged in a faithful recreation of the album artwork, you can now own the inaugural flight of this legendary band for the first time in nearly four decades!

There´s hardly a day now that an airline incident of some sort or another is not in the news. We´re taking a lot closer look at air travel these days than ever before. Therefore, as regards the psychology of travel, we should take a much closer look at what actually happens on airplanes. So, in The Travel Psychologist Travel Tales Series, that´s exactly what I do. Air-travel-life stories include the full range of the human air travel experience, from preboarding incidents to arrivals; from the cabin to the loo; from the public and private lives of airline personnel as well as passengers - from the pilots, to the stews, to you; from that which makes us laugh to that which makes us cry as well as, unfortunately, to that which creates abject fear and terror in the skies. 1.

On September 11, 2001, Lisa Beamer was thrust into the national spotlight after her husband, Todd, became an American hero by preventing terrorist hijackers from almost certainly flying United Flight 93 into the White House or the United States Capitol. Instead, Todd led a group of passengers to resist the hijackers, forcing the plane to crash into a Pennsylvania field. Todd and the other heroes of Flight 93 gave their lives so that untold others would be spared. Nothing could be more heroic. Lisa is now telling that story, and much more. She explores the tragic events of that day, revealing some information never before published. She also looks at the life of her husband, telling how and why he was prepared to make the ultimate sacrifice and the reason for her hope, courage, and quiet personal strength. This is Todd and Lisa´s story, but it´s also ours, for all of us who long to have the personal qualities of a real hero. This book shows us what they are and how to develop them. The phrase, "Let´s Roll" were the last words the GTE Airfone operator heard from Todd before the crash. They have become a rallying cry for all Americans to move ahead, despite pain and suffering, with hope, courage, and strength. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Lisa Helm.
