Happy birthday, Marty Balin

Considering I just posted a sizable chunk of Jefferson Airplane videos for Jorma’s birthday, I’m gonna switch gears with Marty Balin and move into Jefferson Starship and solo territory. Though it clocks in at seven minutes, Miracles is far from the revolutionary hippie jamming of the Airplane, showing a more sensitive, romantic side of Jefferson Starship, with celestial keys and delicate, radio friendly harmonies. I’ve always had a soft spot for it.

Even more loved out and accessible is Balin’s 1981 solo hit, Hearts, another radio staple fave of mine, but whoa, what’s up with the soft porn video?!
