There's not many of them here, but i'm one of them.

I have "Surrealistic Pillow", "After Bathing At Baxters" and The Great Society's "Live At The Matrix".

My man AislingGheal was nice enough to send me the last two of those. He even sent me his original copy of "After Bathing..."!

Here are two other threads that I can remember starting about The Jefferson Airplane.

  Video game commercial

  Levi's commercial

I like them they are a good band. I've read alot of good stories about them and the Dead back in the haight-ashbury day's they had alot of fun together and were very good friends. I guess Garcia was in the studio while recording surrealistic pillow and he actually named it that after hearing a song and describing as sounding as 'surrealistic as a pillow' and the airplane decided thats it.(Read that in Dennis McNally's "A Long Strange Trip")

I'm definitely a fan of the Airplane. My first album of theirs and still my favorite is Surrealistic Pillow. I remember figuring out "Today" on guitar when I was 17, I used to love playing that song. Learyfan turned me on to The Great Society and I've been listening to that over the last week, anyone who likes Jefferson Airplane should pick Collector's Item, it's really good.

I only have surrealistic pillow, and I really like it so i guess that makes me a fan. I'm infatuated with Grace Slick. She's kind of like the perfect mix between a girly hippy and one of those biker chicks...and an amazing vocalist to boot.

I'm a jefferson airplane fan. You probably won't believe this but my dad was the first person to ever smoke hashish with jack cassidy. My dad was 15 at the time and was at a rock club in california when he saw jack cassidy at the bar. Being it was the 60's and people were cooler back then, my dad sat down at the bar and ordered a drink. He asked if cassidy wanted to smoke with him and he said sure. My dad pulled out a homemade pipe and a chunk of hash and packed the bowl. Cassidy had never seen hash before and asked what it was my dad was smoking. My dad told him it was hash, pressed resin glands from cannabis. Well jack cassidy said "cool" and hit the pipe after my dad. Thats probably the most interesting drug related story my dad has told me. And no, my dad isnt some drugged out bum who makes up bullshit stories to impress his kids.

Surrealistic pillow, Crown of Creation, Bathing at Baxters, and Volunteers were some of the mosr amazing musical documents to come out of that wonderous era :smile:

glimmi,
You got one here too! I've always loved them. I have the 2400 fulton street double CD. Excellent!
I always had a weakness for Grace Slick myself  :smirk:. Their music is one of a kind.

Like so many others (a couple others, anyhow) I only have Surrealistic Pillow, and I haven't listened to much other than what's on that album, but yes, I like it.

haha, I wanted to quote some cool lyric and all I'm thinking of is "plastic fantastic lover" ... meh, that's good enough. :grin:

Thats really fucking cool Hot Tuna is fucking awesome.Wish i could see them.Jefferson Airplane was great but my question is now why did they have to degrade into the really shitty 80's band Starship????? I mean jefferson starship was ok not like The Airpalne but they were ok.But i mean Starship just plain sucked.

The Airplane in their prime were motivated by the tri axis of Balin-Kaukonen/Cassidy-Slick/Kantner these were not exactly harmonius juxtapositions of shared musical vision(s)........once these polarized forces were eliminated you had the more "commercial" aspect of the Airplane emerging minus the Kaukonen/Cassidy factor.....what this all means though at 4:00am Toronto time is beyond me :grin:

I can't listen to any Airplane in any form after the sixties. Once they "grew up", they sucked total ass.

Eh early Jeferson starship was ok but yeah i cant really listen to the airplane after the 60's really either man.It makes me wanna cry they were such an amazing band. It really saddens me that sucha an amazing band could degrade into one of the worst bands ever.




peace,
