    Gracie Slick's voice

    Isolated vocals.

    Immaculate.

    I've always been a fan of Airplane and of hers. Wonderful voice and great attitude. A real woman.



    BTW, as you all know, English isn't my mother language and I've never livend in an English speaking country, so I might be wrong but does she have a very slight Irish-like accent?

    she has very good enunciation in her vocals, never realized how good they were until this isolated track. I thought it almost sounded british..

    she was born in highland park, IL about as middle America as you can get.

    Yes, indeed, I knew she was from Illinois and that was what surprised me, I had never listened to her singing without all the instruments behind and she definitely intonates the Os and the Ls in kind of a Celtic way. At least to my non-English raised ears.

    She was a powerful singer and a free spirit whom America ought to be prouder of. I saw her once with Starship, and she belted. Great band anyway.

    BTW, I have to admit to a guilty pleasure. I'm probably pretty alone here in this: I LOVE We Built this City, and I sing along with it every time it comes up on my Spotify "great rock" playlist. Hoooooooooooop-lahhhhhhhhhhhhhh
