Some Psychedelic Sixties Music Still Sounds Good to Anyone!,
This review is from: Surrealistic Pillow (Audio CD)
Marty Balin assembled a bunch of musicians who could help him achieve his vision. Their first album '..Takes Off' was good, but not quite right! After a falling out with the husband of the band's pregnant first female vocalist, Balin plundered The Great Society for Grace Slick (and in the process also gained two powerful songs)
This is by far the most accessible original album by Jefferson Airplane and would be the perfect starting point for anyone curious to know about one of San Francisco's original psychedelic pioneers except......'Worst of Jefferson Airplane' is an even better introduction. Don't buy a 'best of' or 'greatest hits of', or any other variant. Start with either 'Surrealistic Pillow' or 'Worst Of' - anything else may be off-putting until you have eased your way into their music - a most worthwhile venture!
