JEFFERSON AIRPLANE - Surrealistic Pillow (released February 1967)
I can't imagine that it's been over forty-four years since this album's release ! Two classic rock songs are featured here - Somebody to Love and White Rabbit !
She Has Funny Cars, Somebody To Love, My Best Friend, Today, Comin' Back To Me
3/5 Mile In Ten Seconds, D.C.B.A. - 25, How Do You Feel, Embryonic Journey. White Rabbit, Plastic Fantastic Lover
- Marty Balin – vocals, guitar
- Grace Slick – vocals, piano, organ, recorder
- Paul Kantner – rhythm guitar, vocals
- Jorma Kaukonen – lead guitar, vocals
- Jack Casady – bass, fuzz bass, rhythm guitar
- Spencer Dryden – drums, percussion
This was one of the first major psychedelic folk rock albums led by the beautiful (every guy had a crush on her) Grace Slick on vocals and the ingenuous guitar interplay of Marty Balin and Jorma Kaukonen.
The album for the most part is low key and laid back in nature. The mood in a sense reminds me of the Doors debut album and Velevet Underground & Nico,
All the songs are good and Somebody to Love along with White Rabbit are Rock Classics.
MY RATING - 5/5 (ALL MUSIC rating 5/5)
