It's a great shame that there is so little live footage of such great bands as Jefferson Airplane, who were one of the finest rock bands around in the late sixties/early seventies. Video recorders still hadn't arrived then, so nobody ever bothered to film any live performances, unless it was for some special purpose such as a film or TV show, as in this case. Hence, we are left with very little footage of the band playing live. 'Go Ride The Music' includes seven tracks performed by the Airplane, and this is as good as you are likely to find. They were an excellent bunch of musicians, and had some of the best vocalists ever. This session took place after Spencer Dryden had left the band but his replacement, Joey Covington, drove the band along vigorously, with his own very special way of playing the drums. Both drummers have now sadly passed away.

This dvd is well worth getting just for the Airplane material, but it also includes some good tracks from Quicksilver Messenger Service. The second part of the dvd, 'West Pole' was not of very much interest to me.

I can't in all honesty say that this is an essential purchase as the picture quality is that of an old video tape and the sound quality is at best passable. However if you love the bands featured on these 2 shows and value their historic importance, then I reckon you'll love it. Go Ride the Music is probably the better of the two, but the little known Ace Of Cups have a couple of excellent songs on West Pole.

Ralph Gleason who presents West Pole is so well known now and indeed the first book I bought on the West Coast music was his original book The Jefferson Airplane and the San Francisco Sound back about the same time as these shows were made. So in short this DVD is of real value for fans and collectors but it's not the place to start for newcomers.
