Biography

Jefferson Airplane was the first of the San Francisco psychedelic rock groups of the 1960s to achieve national recognition. Although the Grateful Dead ultimately proved more long-lived and popular, Jefferson Airplane defined the San Francisco sound in the 1960s, with the acid rock guitar playing of Jorma Kaukonen and the soaring twin vocals of Grace Slick and Marty Balin, scoring hit singles ...

In summer 1967 Jefferson Airplane had the world at their feet. Their second album 'Surrealistic Pillow' had sold well on the back of the Grace Slick-sung singles "Somebody To Love" and "White Rabbit", and the Airplane had been picked up by the Haight Ashbury crowd as the epitome of the Summer of Love. So, did they grasp this opportunity to achieve national, or even worldwide recognition? Did they hell! The follow up: 'After Bathing At Baxter's', which was released later in the same year, saw 2 things - 1.It saw guitarist/vocalist Paul Kantner & Slick grasp hold of the creative control of the band from vocalist Marty Balin, and 2.It saw them, as the sleeve notes put it, "swan-dive back into the underground that spawned them". A concept album of sorts, it is divided into 4 parts, with 2-4 songs in each section. The opening 'The Ballad Of You and Me and Pooneil' is an outstanding blast of psychedelic rock, with fantastic three-way vocals from Kantner, Balin and the siren-like Slick. 'A Small Package Of Value Will Come to You Shortly' perhaps tries a little too hard to be kooky, but it's still compelling, and 'Young Girl Sunday Blues' is Balin at his best - simple & effective, with great vocals. Then we come to, in my opinion, the high point of the album: the pastoral, eminently folky, brilliantly written 'Martha' which merges into the electric, multi-vocalled 'Wild Tyme' (sic). A feature throughout the album is the tight rhythm section of Jack Casady (bass) and Spencer Dryden (percussion), and this is exemplified on the sprawling, pulsating jam 'Spare Chaynge' (sic), in which the magnificent guitar playing of Jorma Kaukonen is also in evidence.Read more ›

The best line up as soon as Grace Slick joined the Jefferson's, every single tune counts from the precious 60s, it takes you there.

Greatest Acid-Rock Album Ever 30 July 2000
By Compton Roberts - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
On purely musical terms, "After Bathing At Baxter's" by Jefferson Airplane is a one-of-a-kind, acid-stoked masterpiece. Its political sensibility and humour is locked firmly in the late 1960s, and has dated badly in places for it, but as a musical conception there is really nothing like it to compare. Considering that it was the Airplane's follow-up recording to their smash-hit album "Surrealistic Pillow", you've got to admire the chutzpah it took to unleash this on a fickle youth market so soon in their career. It sounds nothing like "Surrealistic Pillow" and thus sold less well,--so much that they never tried anything like this again. Their next record, "Crown of Creation", found an artistic compromise between "Surrealistic Pillow" and "After Bathing At Baxter's". Only their LA rivals The Byrds would ever display such a blatant commercial disregard for its audience. "After Bathing At Baxter's" has moments of instrumental virtuosity (particularly bassist Jack Casady on "Watch Her Ride" and "rejoyce"), inspired harmony vocal arrangements (by Paul Kantner on "Ballad of You & Me & Pooneil", "Martha", "Won't You Try/Saturday Afternoon"), alternatingly lyrical and ferocious guitar phrasing (by Jorma Kaukonen on "Wild Thyme", "Last Wall of the Castle" and "Martha" where he sounds nothing like his much-copied contemporaries Eric Clapton, Jimi Hendrix or Mike Bloomfield), and stellar lead vocals (Grace Slick on "Two Heads" and "rejoyce" and Marty Balin on "Young Girl Sunday Blues"). This is an album for musicians, singers and those with musically adventurous tastes. It is as aggressively sonic as any Velvet Underground, Sonic Youth, Smashing Pumpkins or Nine Inch Nails recording, especially considering that it was recorded in late 1967! The moods, tempos, rhythms and outrageous inventiveness of the arrangements puts it in a league of its own. For all serious music lovers.

Bold as Love 20 Jan 2002
By Gregor von Kallahann - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Eric Clapton once opined (in the late 60s: no idea how he would feel today) that groups were either instrumentally oriented (like Cream) or vocally (like the Beach Boys). Jefferson Airplane were the exception that may or may not have proved the rule. No one could deny the vocal chops of Grace Slick and Marty Balin, both wonderful and unique singers, but the instrumental prowess of Jack Casady and Jorma Kaukonen was an equally distinctive and powerful element of the group's sound. To say they offered the best of both worlds is not quite accurate, though: rather they shaped a whole new one.
"Baxter's" was the Airplane at their boldest and most experimental. Released the same year as their commercially successful "Surrealistic Pillow" is was a radical departure from that album. "Pillow" was a tight, conventionally well produced affair, with little bits of psychedelic freak-out thrown in almost as coloration (e.g. the guitar "outro" on "Somebody to Love"). "Baxter's" was unabashed psychedelia, as others have noted below, and was all the more representative of the group's power and their true sensibility.
It's hard to believe that a rock epic like "The Ballad of You & Me & Pooneil" was actually released as a single--let alone the equally adventurous "Watch her Ride," the vocals of which constantly threaten to derail, but never do. Grace Slick's brooding compositions "rejoyce" and "Two Heads" were real stream-of-consciousness dazzlers --"literary", in an unself-conscious way (much less so than the obvious conceit behind "White Rabbit," say) and penetrating. Her subsequent work only occasionally displayed such flashes of true brilliance. (I say this as a fan, but as an honest one.)
The only down side for me (both in '67 and today) was the diminishment in Marty Balin's contribution. Marty's folky romanticism was already losing ground after "Pillow," and he proved to be one of those artists, for whom increased public acclaim and the exhausting demands of touring, actually proved at least temporarily detrimental to his creative output. "Young Girl Sunday Blues" is a real rouser and he contributes lively vocals throughout, but his role in the group was already on the wane. On the group's subsequent releases, he would average two actual lead vocals and share others with Grace and Paul Kantner. Their vocal sparring remained a highlight of the group's later releases (especially the live album "Bless Its Pointed Little Head"). But Kantner was becoming the dominant songwriter by this point, if not the group's actual "leader."
Speaking of Kantner, his writing was still very strong and not nearly as portentous as it would later become. His compositions here, including "Martha" and "Saturday Afternoon/Won't You Try" achieve a splendor here that he would have trouble matching in later years (when everything became an epic). "After Bathing at Baxter's" is experimental rock at its most successful. If it were played for today's audiences, it could be a salvo against the domniant strains.corporate rock--just as it was in '67.

Before "Rock as Art" became a cliche.... 11 Jan 2000
By qoz - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Many groups in the 60's tried to recreate the experience of an LSD-induced "trip" on record (The Stones "Her Satanic Majesties Request" and The Dead's "Anthem Of The Sun" are two examples). Only "After Bathing At Baxter's" by The Jefferson Airplane came close to suceeding. The 11 songs are grouped into 5 suites representing the different phases of an acid buzz..initial acid rush: (The Ballad Of You And Me And Pooniel), Goofy Halucinating: (Martha), Paranoia: (Rejoice), Moody Contemplation: (Spare Changyz), and Final Bringdown: (Won't You Try/ Saturday Afternoon). The concept works when the CD is played as a whole piece. (Only "Watch Her Ride" sounds like a future Starship project). All in all, besides being the last great album from the storied year-of-the-hippie (1967), it's also one of the most original rock albums made. Recomended!

The Greatest Album Of All Time? 24 Sep 2000
By Michael Topper - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Recorded hot off the heels of their successful "Surrealistic Pillow", which was burning up the charts and one of the main reasons why thousands of teenagers were descending upon the city of San Francisco for the millenium's biggest party, "After Bathing At Baxter's" found the Airplane convinced that they were recording the greatest album of all time. And, in the heady zeitgeist of that era, they just might have. The album was released at Christmas to a puzzled audience; some took to it as the greatest thing they'd ever heard, while the majority of middle-America, irritated at not having another "Somebody To Love", learned just how underground the Airplane really were. If "Takes Off" was the sound of the hippie movement as it was just beginning in '65 and early '66, and "Surrealistic Pillow" a commercially distilled essence of 1966 that became the soundtrack for the summer of love, then "After Bathing At Baxter's" was the summer of love in 1967 as it happened. And what a peak! "Baxter's" takes the sound established on "Pillow" to quantum levels; there are also attempts to bring the band's live playing to focus, as in the bass/drums/guitar duel "Spare Chaynge". The songs are all about freedom, love, abandon and a change of perspective; drummer Spencer Dryden's piece becomes Frank Zappa-ish on "A Small Package", which turns ordinary cocktail-party conversation into a hallucinatory revelation. Slick's two songs "rejoyce" and "Two Heads" are the best of her career, as she plays the crazed intellectual to the hilt, borrowing from "Ulysses" in the former and creating a singularly unique mirror-world in the latter. Everything, from the guitars (this one's mostly electric, although the acoustic "Martha" is a gem) to the harmonies to the drums to the sound effects (many of the guitars, bass, harpsichords, etc are recorded backwards, sped up, slowed down, etc) bristles with a polished sparkle; you can almost taste the acid after "Two Heads" climaxes. After that, the joyous invitation, backed with charged feedback effects and glorious communal four-part harmony vocals, that accompanies "Won't You Try/Saturday Afternoon" is like icing on the cake.

Come Back to Us All, Jefferson Airplane, Jefferson Airplane 8 Nov 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This album was released in 1967 when I was 3 years old...I just heard it this year after catching a VH-1 Behind the Music....It's hard to fathom that rock music was this melodic and radically progressive way back when - since now it seems to have regressed to atonal shouting with two chord changes...This album will restore your faith in all music and obliterate any memories of "We Built This City" - isn't it ironic that "City" went to number one in the 80's and back when this album was released it was a commercial flop....Oh what a twisted, horrid thing is popular taste....
