Editors’ Notes The band’s fifth studio album was their final with the classic lineup. Marty Balin and drummer Spencer Dryden would soon depart while Jorma Kaukonen and Jack Casady focused on Hot Tuna. Guests Jerry Garcia (pedal steel for the countrified “The Farm”) and pianist Nicky Hopkins added new textures that benefitted by being recorded on 16-track tape machines. The lyrical content created controversy, but sociopolitically charged tunes like “We Can Be Together” and the title track perfectly reflected the end of the ‘60s. Kaukonen’s arrangement of the traditional “Good Shepherd” demonstrated the band’s gentle side. “Hey Frederick” illustrated Grace Slick’s vocal talents.
