Sometimes lost in the psychedelic hoopla is the fact that Jefferson Airplane had two lead singers: Grace Slick and Marty Balin. As the Airplane slowly crashed in the '70s, Balin joined a short-lived spinoff, K.B.C. Band, and returned to Jefferson Starship soon after. He left for good in the late '70s, attempted to make it with his own band, Bodacious D.F., and finally scored a hit with Balin in 1981. That album featured the Top 10 "Hearts" and Top 30 "Atlanta Lady." The followup, Lucky, wasn't, limping into the US Top 200. Balin quietly released two discs in the '90s, both on independent labels.
Okay, now that you've drunk in the wonder that was the old Marty Balin page, why not hop over to the new site, where you can re-read my review of "Hearts" (and a whole bunch of Jefferson Airplane/Starship stuff too)?
