JEFFERSON STARSHIP – Freedom At Point Zero [Friday Music Deluxe Edition remastered +1]

JEFFERSON STARSHIP - Freedom At Point Zero [Friday Music Deluxe Edition remastered] full

Here’s another request; JEFFERSON STARSHIP and their double pack Freedom At Point Zero + Winds Of Change remastered by Friday Music. “Freedom At Point Zero” is Jefferson Starship’s first album with new and awesome lead singer Mickey Thomas.
After both original vocalists Marty Balin and Grace Slick left the band the prior year, Jefferson Starship recruited the great Mickey Thomas starting a new melodic chapter for the band. Apart from Thomas, Aynsley Dunbar plays drums on “Freedom At Point Zero”; he had left Journey the previous year.

When did the roots of AOR (that’s Adult Orientated Rock) actually take hold? Students and critics have spent many a conversation pouring over this conundrum but the general consensus of opinion tends to agree on two years, two bands and two songs.
The year was 1978 and 1979, the bands were Toto and Jefferson Starship and the tracks, respectively, were ‘Hold The Line’ and ‘Jane’, both huge international hits that cast the mould for a future so bright that the formula was appropriated by a huge cast of characters well into the following decade.

With the appointment of skilled drummer Aynsley Dunbar from Journey and new vocalist Mickey Thomas together with super hot guitarist Craig Chaquico, the band headed for new pastures and came up trumps hitting the AOR bullseye dead centre.
‘Freedom At Point Zero’, originally issued in 1979, took the band to new heights of accomplishment. Produced expertly by Ron Nevison (Heart, Survivor) the sound showcases a band with fire in their belly and a style that set fire to the American charts.
And in the AOR pantheon ‘Jane’ remains an all-time classic.
