It is what it says. Along with After Bathing at Baxter's this is truly the highest achievement of the human race. And this album doesn't sound dated at all. For anyone who wants a bit more. Great songs from everyone, Jorma's guitar is at its searing best, Jack puts most jazzos to shame. Words are superfluous. Highlights for me: Lather, In time, Share a little joke, If you feel, Greasy Heart. Spencer Dryden, an experienced jazz drummer lends to the unique feel of the music - it's rarely a straightforward rock approach; bass player Jack Casady, the best musician who ever played in a rock band is delicious all through this; Jorma Kaukonen - on acoustic guitar he's been described as John Renbourn and Bert Jansch rolled into one and these days (2007)he's more respected than ever - by the time of this album he was well on top of electric guitar and producing excitement easily to match Hendrix or Clapton; and three distinct and original singer songwriters in Paul Kantner, Marty Balin and Grace Slick - Marty and Grace being universally recognised as each being among the finest singers ever - it's worth saying again: few bands ever had one singer as good as Marty or Grace, no other band ever had 2! Imagine the Pentangle meets the Jimi Hendrix experience meets the Mamas and the Papas! They had their share of hit singles over the years but didn't have as many instantly catchy songs as the Beatles, the Rolling Stones, the Who or the Doors but when it all came together they flew higher than anyone!
