EDITORS’ NOTES

The twin juggernauts of “White Rabbit” and “Somebody to Love” ensured its place in rock history, but Jefferson Airplane’s 1967 album isn’t just a vehicle for showstopping new singer Grace Slick. Marty Balin lends vulnerable lead vocals to the medieval folk twinges of “Comin’ Back to Me” and The Mamas & The Papas-esque “How Do You Feel,” and “Embryonic Journey” shows off the fluid fingerpicking of future Hot Tuna guitarist Jorma Kaukonen. As playful as its title, Surrealistic Pillow is the sound of campfire love-ins turned trippy and ambitious.

U like real rock n roll? then u must own this album!!!!

wow what an amazing record....there's classics, and then there's CLASSICS!!! this album dropped in the 60's so its influence is heavily felt in popular music since then. grace slicks voice is sultry, heavy at times, and mysterious. Just a beautifully produced album here. If u dont have it, GET IT!!!

My Favorite Jefferson Airplane

I'm a huge fan of 60's psychedelic music. This album is great! If you don't already know grace slicks voice is heavenly. This album is very touching with some really great messages tucked in. "when the truth is found to be lies" Jefferson Airplane showed the world how to send meaning through the mass by music. This is a very mellow beautiful psychedelic album. Truely makes me wish i was apart of what was going on back then
