JEFFERSON AIRPLANE: 2400
Fulton Street - An Anthology
(RCA).

Unlike most greatest hits collec-
tions, 24 Fulton Street serves a real

urpose. Its four sides and 25

sacks make a wonderfully con-
hncing case for the range and
breadth of the Jefferson Airplanes’
artistry.
. The hits are here, of course -
Somebody to Love, White Rabbit,
Volunteers and Wooden Ships But
lesser-known tracks such as Mar-
tha, Won ’t You Try/Sa turday AI-
temoon and Toda y display surpris-

by writer Ben Fong-‘l‘orres and the
breakdown of the LP’s sides by cat-
egory (Beginnings, Psychedelia,

THE WHO: Two’s Missing.
(MCA).

With Pete Townshend’s two an-
thologies and collections like this

belt-documented of the major Brit-
ish bands.

Two’s Missingeonsists of Who B-
sides, live tracks and songs previ-
ously unreleased in America. Of
the 14 tunes here, the covers of the
Stones’ Under My Thumb and The
Last Time, the live version of My
Wife, and the gems Circles and
Daddy Rolling Stone hold the great-
est appeal. True believers might
equally value the covers of the
blues classic I ’m a Man and Martha
and the Vandellas’ Heatwa ve.
