1967 was an amazing year for rock music, and San Francisco was the place to be
for legendary classic rock bands like Jefferson Airplane.
After their debut album "Takes Off", Jefferson Airplane changed line-ups with
the addition of future superstar lead vocalist Grace Slick, and jazz/rock
drummer Spencer Dryden and delivered the monumental classic Surrealistic Pillow.
Along with founders Paul Kantner, Marty Balin, Jorma Kaukonen, Jack Casady and
their musical and spiritual advisor Jerry Garcia, Surrealistic Pillow would
become one of the most important albums of all time, as well as defining the
Summer of Love.

tunes would go on to become rock music and social anthems for the turbulent
Even more stellar album tracks like "She Has Funny Cars", "3/5 Of A Mile In Ten
Seconds" and "Plastic Fantastic Lover" would all become standard Airplane
classics in the years to follow.
"Jam bands" began with groups like Jefferson Airplane. Therefore it's no
surprise to hear the wonderful workouts by dual guitarists Jorma Kaukonen and
Paul Kantner along with Grace Slick and Marty Balin's power vocals plus the bass
of Jack Casady and Spencer Drydens' drum work on this watershed release.
