Biography

Jefferson Airplane was the first of the San Francisco psychedelic rock groups of the 1960s to achieve national recognition. Although the Grateful Dead ultimately proved more long-lived and popular, Jefferson Airplane defined the San Francisco sound in the 1960s, with the acid rock guitar playing of Jorma Kaukonen and the soaring twin vocals of Grace Slick and Marty Balin, scoring hit singles ...

Editorial Reviews

One of the most psychedelic albums ever made, sounding again like it should (i.e. *intense*)! Includes an unreleased Marty Balin acoustic demo; an unreleased alternate version of Grace's bizarre Two Heads ; an unreleased instrumental version of Young Girl Sunday Blues ; a live, long version of The Ballad of You, Me & Pooneil , and the mono single version of Martha .

5.0 out of 5 stars Bathin' Sounds January 10, 2006
Format:Audio CD
This album has been widely criticized, as well as the rest of the psychedelic style, for something called 'amateurish experimentation'. But it is in the lack of knowledge that one can experiment, & even today, this album sounds far more daring than most of the 'experimental' bands of today (and I am sixteen years, so I'm not just being nostalgic). Also, this band harbours much stronger songs than most of what is released today (or ever was).

The first cycle of songs are the three brilliant tracks that make up the chapter 'Streetmasse'.

It opens with the delightful acid-rock'n'roll gem of 'The Ballad Of You & Me & Pooneil', a great kicking rhytm with a brilliant killer riff. This leads into the almost jazzy experimentation of 'A Small Package Of Value Will Come To You, Shortly'. It is a form of joyous madness, wrapping the gleaming sounds in some uncanny veil.

'Young Girl Sunday Blues' is one of the best Airplane songs ever. Its strenght is further solidified with a wonderfully awkward & still druggily burning guitar solo, that falls into a gorgeous last verse. But overall, the song is gorgeous all the way, a mixture of melancholy, myth & rock'n'roll that sounds like everything from The Doors' 'Crystal Ship' to Led Zeppelin's 'Over The Hills And Far Away'.

It comes as a surprise then, that the following track, 'Martha', is, arguably, even stronger. Its verses are gorgeous, but the melancholy in the chorus, as Grace Slick's voice soars beneath the main vocal, is simply divine. This dreamy song also opens the second cycle of songs on the album, the one called 'The War Is Over'.

'Wild Thyme' is a delicious, purely Airplane rocker with great vocals, and a mood like an invocation of the wild, raging forces of nature.

5.0 out of 5 stars "Won't You Try?" June 3, 2006
Format:Audio CD
Jefferson Airplane tried hard, on this 1967 utterly noncommercial followup to their phenomenally successful classic Surrealistic Pillow. Having made RCA millions of dollars with PILLOW, the Airplane took full advantage of their newly-minted blank check to create what may be the purest example of musical psychedelia to come out of the Sixties.

Listening to AFTER BATHING AT BAXTER'S is literally a trip. Bizarrely torqued lyrics are wedded to experimental recording techniques, sound montages, and off-center tempos and rhythms to provide the listener with an auditory hallucination. Everything goes, and so it went at BAXTER'S. It was all new, avant-garde to excess, and it largely failed to reach its fullest potential.

Most art does fail, but there's no question that BAXTER'S cross-pollinated with many other performers and musical styles. The influence of BAXTER'S can be heard in "Revolution 9" by The Beatles, and on many other recordings of the era. BAXTER'S may have sold relatively poorly compared to PILLOW, but it was heard by the Airplane's contemporaries, and it clearly served as a wellspring of inspiration. An aficionado's album, AFTER BATHING AT BAXTER'S is a ghost in the machine that remains haunting even today.

5.0 out of 5 stars A 60's Must-Have June 23, 2005
Format:Audio CD
I believe that a lot of people are often times forgetting the west-coast psychedelic era when they consider all of the successful and innovative genres of classic rock. Jefferson Airplane is nothing short of The Grateful Dead, being that they were musically virtuous, very poetic, and had this brilliant flow and collaboration that really was not topped by many other bands of the era.

Jefferson Airplane gave a unique picture of themselves to this world thanks to the female singer, Grace Slick (who has an incredible voice), and the lead guitar player, Jorma Kaukonen. They were both the innovative and creative minds behind Jefferson Airplane (at least, in my opinion) and it is unfortunate that they do not get more memorable press. Jefferson Airplane truly was a unique and out-of-this-world band, and I believe that this album more than any of their others demonstrates this claim.

After Bathing at Baxter's is a really soulful album and the instrumentals are very LSD-inducing. The drums are especially fitting for the music and it's good to see a drummer with some real funk. The group-singing, especially in the opening track, The Ballad of You and Me and Pooneil, is very catching and emotional. Young Girl Sunday Blues, however, is the highlight of this track, in my opinion. The graceful singing performed by Slick is just majestic, and the emotion it portrays is fascinating. The strange 1 and a half minute long mix of different noises, "A Small Package of Value Will Come to You, Shortly" also shows the listener some very interesting innovation of recording methods, and I'm sure this track in particular inspired other producers of records, such as those responsible for the effects that are to be heard in groups like Pink Floyd and Utopia.

5.0 out of 5 stars How much did/will this change your life? December 6, 2006
Format:Audio CD
I used to throw this one on while I was executing psychedelic paintings (tempera paint on poster-board) during sophomore year ('68-'69) at the university.

The first, very long lead guitar note signals the beginning of an epic/epochal journey, which in a way is what this album set out to achieve. It was to be a transformation of the consciousness of our generation, perceived/conceived through what the Airplane offered us through their creativity, experience, and of course their music. It was the herald of a new dawn, a kind of strange bird trumpeting to us of its arrival, and secondarily announcing their new style/sound.

On "The Ballad of You and Me and Pooneil", you almost don't know what Balin and company are singing about, but somehow it makes perfect sense, in a most visionary sort of way. This is excellent, as they don't fall prey to trying to describe the situation too precisely [if you can say/see exactly what it is, you ain't there!] So what you get is the map of the energy currents your soul can follow in order to travel the paths they are marking. Jefferson Airplane are describing and charting the way into and through the region of numinous. (Who really cares whether or not if it's meant to be thought of as drug-induced? It works either way, I'd say).

Dylan never did it any better than this. When Mr. Zimmerman got into a similar mode ["Gates of Eden", "Desolation Row", "The Ballad of Frankie Lee and Judas Priest", et al.), he was busy creating new prophetic religious texts for the New/Now Generation. Bob created a series of alternate worlds staring at us, right in front of us. Or was he semi-transforming what we always see into what we always know, but don't always realize? Again, either way, it works.
