Author Craig Fenton's Have You Seen The Stars Tonite, the follow-up to his extraordinary first volume, Take Me to a Circus Tent, is an in-depth and expansive exploration of Jefferson Starship's music. For starters, there is no more recognized authority in the world than Fenton. He knows every note, every player, every song, and every cultural ripple that has ever originated from this unique group of San Francisco musicians.

Have You Seen The Stars Tonite is a virtual treasure chest of information. There are nearly 200 photos to accompany the wealth of data that includes:

  • Complete/partial setlists for over 700 concerts
  • Info on when/where/what version a song first appeared
  • Extensive lineup material on the bands/solo projects/one-offs
Craig Fenton is a fan, nay a fanatic, of the Airplane and the Starship, and that is all revealed in his two outstanding tomes. He loves the music and the way it makes him feel and the places it takes him when he listens to it. Reading this book will give you those same feelings; it will take you back to a place that is now gone but does exist in Have You Seen The Stars Tonite.

It was not an easy book to write. In March 2007, Craig's father died, but he persevered and kept the silent promise he'd made to his father and mother and forged ahead to complete this second book. He has combed every site, spoken to numerous other experts on the band, and documented it all right here.

This was a book well worth writing, and it is absolutely a book well worth having in your own collection.

Impassively watching as the accused suffer the various accoutrements of torture, most stunning are the monstrous designs created for no other reason that to inflict unbearable pain and evoke the necessary confessions. It is not difficult to view such events through the prism of the past, but the author makes direct connections from the blood-drenched dungeons to more modern shadowed places, secret prisons where enemies of the government are subjected to the same grisly techniques in the name of a righteous cause, always the oppressor exerting power over the helpless individual.
