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

The album that showed the uninitiated just how astonishing this band was live is hereby reissued with performances of Today; Won't You Try/Saturday Afternoon , and Watch Her Ride that were intended for the original release but were left off due to the time constraints of vinyl!

Customer Reviews

Jefferson Airplane was the other quinessential S.F. band.
D McPixel/Vectors
Although, to be fair, unlike the other tracks, which are actual songs, it really wasn't meant to stand alone.
Michael Crowley
Goes good with the Grateful Dead, Quicksilver Messenger Service, and many other West Coast bands.

Just finished spinning the new BIPLH remaster and felt it warranted some detailed comment. First of all, everything about the packaging is terrific; I was especially pleased to see Mike Frankel's photos from one of the actual Fillmore East gigs where the album was recorded. ("Ah, so that's what they were wearing...")

BIPLH itself has been appreciably remastered, with heightened clarity and instumental image separation. Certain sounds that got smudged on earlier masterings, like Spencer Dryden's high-hat and Jorma Kaukonen's lightning-fast lead fingerings are brought crisply forward, making the live performance itself more staggering than ever. ("Some o' them chords," indeed.) The drums are the biggest sonic difference over the previous issue, but the group interplay in general is also easier now to separate in the mind's ear -- for instance, I found it possible to just focus on Paul Kantner's Leslie-fied guitar noodlings in "Bear Melt," which exposed the brilliance of his contribution to one awesome mother of a live performance.

I note, with some pain, that the sticky smudge which plagued the earliest issues of this album on CD during Jorma's introductory lead on "Plastic Fantastic Lover," is back -- though digitally glossed over. (But I can still hear it -- and it was fixed for the previous issue!) But the big sonic disappointment for me is how Jack Casady's bass comes off -- such a consistently brilliant performance, but why doesn't it reach down to my system's sub-woofer, even with the bass enhanced?

Jack's Guild Starfire II roars through my sub-woofer only on the last three numbers, the bonus tracks added to this remastered CD and allegedly intended for the original release but booted due to vinyl's time constraints.

When the Airplane recorded this blitzkrieg onslaught of out-of-control psychedelic rock, they were the biggest band in the US and, observed from a ballroom floor they were Great.

This particular set is played faster (amphetamines?) than most by JA, but you'll soon get the picture. We're talking sonic boom, here with an overlay of dueling vocalism, the likes of which have never been heard again.

This was a band with four vocalist/songwriters (Marty, Paul, Jorma, Grace), transcendental overdrive built in to the engine and more than a little craziness (Grace Slick, mainly). There is also the matter of the bass player known as "God" to his adherents, Jack Casady. He never fails.

I could go on, but hey, I'm a bit biased. This group was my favorite live group. For contrast, try JA's "Crown of Creation", an inky, dark slab of psychedelia from 1968. (By the way, Jorma Kaukonen is one of the great ones, then AND now).

This is a great album. Having seen the Airplane many times in SF, both loud and soft, I can tell you they varied wildly as a live band. They could be too loud, off-key singing, terrible. BUT. On a good night, they were untouchable. This album is almost as good as they got - not quite, but close enough to give you an idea. Sure would be nice if Amazon listed the bonus tracks so we would know whether to buy another version of it! At any rate, if you don't have it and like the Airplane to any degree, buy this record. I think it was Casady who was quoted as saying something along the lines of "This was the first live recording of ourselves we listened to where we didn't all get up and leave the room!" Listen to "Its' No Secret" on the first album, then listen to it on this album and you'll see why they could tear your head off live.

From the heyday of the psychedelic rock era in San Francisco, the album, "Bless Its Pointed Little Head", is a fine recording of a live concert by one of the city's best-known and much-loved bands, The Jefferson Airplane. The concert was recorded, in late 1968, at the venerable rock temple, The Fillmore East, in New York City, and also at its sister venue in San Francisco, The Fillmore West, both owned by one-time Airplane manager, Bill Graham. Combining the powerful vocal mix of Grace Slick, Marty Balin, and Paul Kantner, with the musicianship of Jorma Kaukonen, lead guitarist extraordinaire, Jack Casady, bassist, and Spencer Dryden, drummer, you have an exceptional example here of psychedelic rock, San Francisco-style, at its best recorded live. For instance, give a listen to the intense interaction between the vocals of singer, Marty Balin, and the lead guitar work of Jorma Kaukonen on the song, "Plastic Fantastic Lover", something that is definitely missing on all studio recordings of this song. The energy is phenomenal. Or, give a listen to the intricate interplay, for more than six minutes, no less, between bass, rhythm guitar, and lead guitar on the song, "The Other Side of This Life". Superb.

With guidance from their friend, Jerry Garcia of the Grateful Dead, The Jefferson Airplane produced their breakthrough album in 1967 with their second studio effort, "Surrealistic Pillow." As a product of those sessions, the band had a huge hit during that year's Summer of Love with the song, "Somebody to Love", sung by Grace Slick. It certainly received plenty of radio airplay from coast to coast.
