Surrealistic Pillow (LP)
Jefferson Airplane's second LP was recorded at a time when the Haight-Ashbury counterculture movement was at its peak and Airplane were its poster children, along with The Doors. Propelled into the limelight by the two singles 'Somebody To Love' and 'White Rabbit', Surrealistic Pillow became essential listening. Also fuelling its rise were rumours surrounding the involvement or non-involvement of Grateful Dead leader Jerry Garcia in its production. Whatever the true story is, the fact remains that it's a highly original psychedelic classic of the 60s.
And, just for grins, let's hear my favourite version. (Sorry Grace!)
