Crown of Creation captures Jefferson Airplane rapidly evolving from their
folk-rock roots to electric heaviness. Jorma Kaukonen's strident, slashing
guitar and Jack Casady's omnipotent bass lead the musical charge on a superior
set of songs. Combined with passionate vocals from Grace Slick and Marty
Balin, the album snakes, pulses and careens its way through eleven turbulent
tracks, culminating in the epic "The House at Pooneil Corners", one of the
Airplane's most epic excursions.
In their late-'60s heyday, the Jefferson Airplane embodied the era's
revolutionary attitude and experimental spirit like no other rock act. Their
unique combination of adventurous musicianship, visionary lyrics and personal
charisma defined San Francisco psychedelia and established the band as
quintessential Aquarian-age messengers.
Released in the fall of 1968, Crown of Creation found the ever-evolving Airplane
moving towards a heavier, more concise approach on such tunes as "Greasy Heart"
"In Time," "If You Feel" and the soaring title number. The band's folk-rock
roots are reflected on Slick's whimsical "Lather" and the David Crosby penned
"Triad." The resulting album vividly captures the spirit of its time, and
stands as a powerful testament to Jefferson Airplane's brilliance.
As part of it ongoing mission to present classic LPs in all their original sonic
and visual glory, the first generation stereo masters were sourced and the cover
