When the truth is found to be lies
And all the joy within you dies
Don't you want somebody to love, don't you
Need somebody to love, wouldn't you
Love somebody to love, you better
Find somebody to love

When the garden flowers baby are dead, yes and
Your mind, your mind is so full of red
Don't you want somebody to love, don't you
Need somebody to love, wouldn't you
Love somebody to love, you better
Find somebody to love

Your eyes, I say your eyes may look like his
Yeah, but in your head, baby, I'm afraid you don't know where it is
Don't you want somebody to love, don't you
Need somebody to love, wouldn't you
Love somebody to love, you better
Find somebody to love

Tears are running down and down and down your breast
And your friends, baby they treat you like a guest
Don't you want somebody to love, don't you
Need somebody to love, wouldn't you
Love somebody to love, you better
Find somebody to love

+2 to 7 today....and I think the band sounds on fire live even if the recording of this performance ain't great.
LLRP!#
Tired of the lyrics but wow, Jack Cassidy is ripping all over and that's what I hear. Grace Slick, who's that?
Say something Jack! Oh, wait, he's all over this song!
I’m rating this 2, and one of the points was just for the singer being Grace Slick. Can’t like this having loved the original so much for almost 60 years.

WHAT? I've heard "Tears are running down your dress for 50 (!!) years.
Those who know, know.

Those who don't, do your research. Elongated skulls found in many places across the world and they are NOT produced by binding babies heads.

Hello?  Quality of the recording maybe? It was 1969.  Live albums just didn't sound that good given the technology.
I grew up liking the Airplane. I've come to find it barely more than noise in recent years, both the singing and instrumentals.
I only saw the Starship redux, but the did it justice through the seventies. 
Acid kickin in i feel
WOULDN'T YOU LOVE SOMEBODY TO LOVE?
YOU'D BETTER FIND SOMEBODY TO LOVE!
So I'm browsing the web reading up on some Signe era Airplane and lo and behold what should appear....well, it's Grace but it's Airplane just the same.

Love the live version.    Can feel the energy from Grace...oh to have been able to see them live.

Oof.

Perhaps I should have rephrased at the time?

Was Jef avion pitching this song to love-frustrated adults like you TerryS?  

I'm referring to the lyrics; quite fond of the song otherwise.

And while we are on the subject, multiple brief love encounters were not one of the more successful experiments of the counter culture period.

To put it more bluntly, I have met lots of people who fucked their brains out over the years and struck me as very, very lonely.  

Like I said, I am referencing the lyrics.  Otherwise this is a great song from a great band.

Funny, but I didn't 'get' this album when I was much younger, and I was a huge JA fan.  Sounds so good now!  Unfortunately, I never got to see the Airplane live....

He used to play Guild hollow-bodies a lot (as noted previously), but he's probably played them all over the years. I think Epiphone now makes a Jack Casady Signature bass.

Great memories here.  Jorma cranking out the rock and Jack moving back and forth, laying down rock solid bass.  Miss these guys.

I played this album endlessly back in the 60s much to my mother's dismay but this is one of the lesser cuts of a great live album. 
That was a terrific live version of a signature song.  Jorma was cranking down.
When I was first exposed to Miles Davis in the late sixties although I was in awe of his reputation and fascinated I heard only disjointed giberish.It was only through some live improvisation of JA  that I started to hear . After going back many years later I,arguably, finally"got electric Miles". Some never do and probably hear that same JA as shit.Maybe they're right.
 I love what you wrote about live performance. It is magic when a live version of a song is radically different from it's studio counterpart and fantastic nonetheless.

I don't agree with either one of you - just for the record. There are many, me included, who felt that the true brilliance of this band was when they were live - and that the magic was somewhat lost in the studio. Depends on what you want out of your art but if you want the same thing over and over again every single time - then go with the recorded version. If you want something magical and new (again, my opinion, of course) then take your chances with the live show. Of course, it doesn't always work, but there are those times when lightning strikes. All of the most transcendent experiences I've had musically were at live concerts that brought me to my emotional knees.

And, too, think of it from the artist's perspective - if they can take a song and change it up to keep it fresh for them - instead of playing the same version hundreds of times, then both audience and performer benefit. Frankly, as much as I love the studio version of 'STL', I'd listen to this one over it first. I love the charge, the way Cassidy's bass ramrods the song, piles over a lyric, like a halfback flying over the top of the opposing lines at the goal line. And, to me, Grace was wildly creative, moreso in the moment of a live show in many cases.

And I have loved this entire album since the day I bought it in 1970 - after also buying all previous JA studio albums and loving them. Since then I have obtained numerous live JA shows from that era which I also treasure. I could go on but I won't. Sorry, brevity is not one of my strengths.

And, as always, I present these views as opinion, not fact, as it should be.

PS: Ultimately, I, too, felt that the Airplane lost their way. But it was a great ride for quite awhile. They had something. It was good to be alive in the '60's.

I'll second that, mainly because a live gig is a 'full-body' 'surround sound' immersive experience. The sound, the lights, the people, the drugs (legal and not), the place, the occasion - when it comes together (as it did for me at a recent Peatbog Faeries gig in Beverley) it is literally transcendental, taking you out of your body into another realm of experience. Not that this comes across on recordings of live gigs, mind, because you only hear them from your own speakers or phones, not from stacked amps - you don't get the 'surround sound' you do live. However, some live gigs are so great that their recordings are really special. On the flipside, some are absolutely damn awful, but like you say sometimes lightning strikes.

I wish I'd seen Grace Slick in her youth, though I'm not quite old enough for that to have been the case. Even in recordings she comes across as a sexy, sensual and powerful woman, and of course with one hell of a voice and presence.
then what happened?
Guess you had to be there.
Harsh segue from Radioheads There There. What was Bill thinking? Hmmm? {#Think}
No.......PSD...thank you!

"Somebody to Love" is a rock song that was written by Darby Slick and originally recorded by 1960s folk rock band The Great Society and later by the psychedelic rock band Jefferson Airplane. First performed by The Great Society, which included Grace Slick on vocals.

Grace Slick of Jefferson Airplane performaing at a free concert in Golden Gate Park.

"One of Grace's oddest and most famous incidents occurred shortly before her pregnancy. In April 1970, the former Finch College student was invited to a reception hosted by President Richard Nixon's daughter, Tricia, at the White House. The organizers of the affair apparently had little idea who Grace was, or of her opinion of Nixon. (Her song, Mexico, a scathing critique of Nixon's anti-drug policy, had only just been released as a single.) Upon arrival, however, Grace was barred from entering when she brought a "bodyguard" — '60s radical Abbie Hoffman! Grace later said that, had they been allowed in, they had planned to spike Nixon's tea with LSD."

 
... and this is a fine live performance!  I had never heard this one before.
 


I was thinking "what's wrong — I usually like this song." Then I saw it's a live (and very sloppy) version. That 'splains it!
More, love it!

I thought I told you never to call me, dude, fingerpin. Ok, you're right, I never actually asked that at all. And you're right that it's only a song. Nevertheless, if you're thinking this is not representative of how many of us conduct the dialogues in other spheres of our lives, then I disagree. And, that, if there is any validity to it, is important. I give you the likes of Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck, and Keith Olbermann as evidence.

Live was a different experience back then
The bands had limited access to high powered sound systems back then
and high powered was @ 100-150watts per amp, if that, in the 60's.
and they weren't as polished for the most part, as the audiences these days expect
Listen to Woodstock, that was very good sound for back then, but pales by todays standards.
The Dead (stack of Mac MC2300's) and Little Feat (massive stack of Crown DC300's I seem to recall)
really brought in the modern era of great sounding concerts in the mid 70's  and of course Feat set the bar for polished performances. Heart and Elton John put on a good sounding, tight concert, but the Who (although very loud), Led Zepplin, most bands sounded rough in concert.
This was typical of the time.

Hmmm, a lot of you seem to be listening to a different version them I am.  To me, this is fabulous.  Grace isn't going out of key during her "excursions"; Jack's bass playing is totally fantastic and would save the track even if other parts weren't so great.  I'll admit that Marty's singing is a little odd, but it's so far down in the mix that it's not problematic.  I have heard some bad JA live tracks, but this isn't one of them.  Of course, your mileage may vary.

For me, the creative energy on display - how many bands create multiple arrangements of a hit song - to play live and keep things interesting for both themselves and their audience? Not many. This is the only I know of. Besides, Jack Cassidy's bass playing on this song runs rings around the melody without ever failing to define the rhythmic punch the song needs - my OPINION, of course, with which many will quite reasonably and freely disagree.

Saw these folks in Boston about the time of this release and was pretty much underwhelmed with the performance.
This is your brain. This is your brain on drugs. Any questions?
Ick. This is really embarassing. Best to bury this version, I think.
