Review by Guillermo
3 stars I first listened to the song "Volunteers" and to JEFFERSON AIRPLANE in the "Woodstock" triple LP album from 1970. This song is a very energetic political, anti-war song, somewhat simple (2-3 chords), but maybe the anti-war and "revolutionary" political messages of the lyrics were more important then than the music itself. It has the late very good session piano player Nicky Hopkins as guest. He also appeared with the band in the Woodstock Festival in 1969. Unfortunately, the original film of that Festival did not include songs played by this band although they were represented in both of the original LP compilations of the Festival which were released as "Woodstock" in 1970 and as "Woodstock 2" in 1971. It seems that they finally appear in a new version of the film done some 30 years or more after that Festival was organized.

"Volunteers" is maybe one of their most popular and known songs.

The B-side of this single also was taken from the "Volunteers" LP from 1969. In fact, it is the first song from that album, and this song in particular is longer but musically very similar in some parts to the "Volunteers" song but with more chords in the other parts of the song. It also has Nicky Hopkins on piano.
