Surrealistic Pillow by Jefferson Airplane


Play on Napster
Label: Rca/Bmg Heritage
In hindsight, the Jefferson Airplane's Surrealistic Pillow sounds more like a well-crafted collection of mildly psychedelic folk rock than the first album to capture the jarring acid rock sound of San Francisco's Haight-Ashbury scene. On "How Do You Feel?," "My Best Friend," and the moody classic "Today" the twin lead vocals of Grace Slick and Marty Balin soar like the Mamas and Papas', while the only songs to really hint at the fierce atonality of later releases are the two hits that Slick brought with her from the Great Society: "White Rabbit" and "Somebody to Love." Still, when talking up the true landmarks of the era - Revolver, Forever Changes, Days of Future Passed, etc. -- Surrealistic Pillow has to be included.
