Dance With The Drag­on”. The whole band got writ­ing cred­it for this song.

 

St. Charles”.  Pro­mo. Sort of an ear­ly music video, shot and edit­ed on film.

Writ­ten by Paul Kant­ner and Craig Chaquico. We used live footage shot on tour in the 1970’s. I’d just bro­ken my leg and you see me play­ing bass with a full length cast on. I played bass gui­tar and piano on the record­ing.

1976. Jef­fer­son Star­ship “Spit­fire

Pro­duced by Lar­ry Cox. (Ex Bud­dy Hol­ly drum­mer).
Record­ed at Wal­ly Hei­der Stu­dios, Hyde Street, San Fran­cis­co.
R.C.A. Records

The album quick­ly rose in the Bill­board Charts and spent six con­sec­u­tive weeks at #3 going Plat­inum. I wrote “Hot Water” with Grace and got part writ­ing cred­it on “Dance With The Drag­on” and “Song For The Sun” Part 1. “Ozymandias”-“Don’t Let It Rain”.
