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 ...

The bonus tracks Ribumbabap Rubadubaoumoum; Would You Like a Snack; Share a Little Joke (single version), and the unreleased and suitably bizarre The Saga of Sydney Spacepig join the rest of this 1968 album.

Jefferson Airplane's 1968 album 'Crown Of Creation' is a classic.
Johnny Boy
I was really impressed; most of the songs were excellent but the record quality was so-so.
One listen to this record will make you want to listen to more music like this.

I'll leave the critical reviews to those who made their opinions known under the prior release of this CD. Suffice to say this is a very good, underrated album in the JA/JS canon. The query here is "Why should I buy this CD"? Simply put, the remastered 24 bit sound is ASTOUNDING. The interplay between Casady/Kaukonen/Dryden is now revealed with a clarity that finally makes a definitive case for the trio being the premier musicians of the SF rock scene. The muddiness of the prior releases, even the problems with the mid 90's "remasters", is almost completly removed, with only the slightest tape hiss to distract you during some of the quieter sections. Thankfully, the vocals of Slick/Balin and Kantner are also revealed in all their glory, leaving no doubt as to the quality that needs to be re-discovered about JA. If you have a high-end stereo system this release is a must buy, and not a bad bargain those who don't.

'Masterpiece' is a ubiquitous word, but it's the only one that properly describes this album. This is the definitive album from five extremely talented Californian hipsters known as Jefferson Airplane. Grace Slick, Marty Balin, Paul Kantner, Jorma Kaukonen, Jack Casady and Spencer Dryden all merged their creative strengths together to turn rock music into something revolutionary and monumental.
First of all, this re-mastered version is a real treat. Super sound quality, bonus songs and a detailed booklet full of rare photos and liner notes. The band had already set the world on fire with their first three albums, showing their remarkable, divine vocal harmonies, and CROWN OF CREATION proved their excellence even further.
They open the album with three of the most magnificent ballads ever written. "Lather", "In Time" and "Triad" are all unbelievably beautiful and soothing. Grace's "Lather" is based on drummer Spencer Dryden. Spencer was about to turn thirty at the time, hence the line "Lather was thirty years old today". It's also based on a little incident that occured with Jack Casady. Jack was given a pill by a drug guru named Owsley, but he made the pill much too strong, and Jack totally went berserk when he took it. He was arrested for running naked on the beach and drawing pictures in the sand, which is also referred to in the song. And as for the song itself, Grace sings it in a way that just sends shivers down your spine, amongst many strange sound effects and some peaceful acoustic guitar. The hauntingly graceful "In Time" is even better, and it's probably my favorite Airplane song ever. The choruses are pure bliss, with Kantner, Slick and Balin ALL singing in harmony, combining their voices in such a way that it sounds like the essence of beauty itself.

Recently I stumbled across an old vinyl copy of this album. Id heard 'Surrealistic Pillow' and loved it, but I'd read that this album was not up to that same standard. These reviews were so wrong, this album is brilliant! It captures Jefferson Airplane at their premium best, during the height of the San Francisco music revolution. The songs delve deep into the mystical psychedelic world of space and science fiction, creating sounds that are still undeniably unique today.

The album was especially important for Jack Casady, whose bass lines have been compared to The Who's John Entwistle. Around this time Casady also helped Jimi Hendrix with the recording of `Electric Ladyland'. On many of the tracks, Casady's bass sounds like a second lead instrument, accompanying Jorma Kaukonen on lead guitar. Grace slicks vocals play a bigger role than on `Surrealistic Pillow', which many fans will find rewarding. Her intimidating tone becomes something that we all know and love about the Airplane.

So if you are thinking about this album then go ahead and get it. It stands the test of time; along side so many great albums from this period. Even the old vinyl copy sounds great after thirty seven years.

I am reading all the great "Bathing at Baxter's" reviews so I decided to replay both Baxter's and "Crown of Creation" and, sorry folks, but Crown IS the crown of JA's creations. Baxter's has the music, indeed, but Crown has BOTH the music and the definite lyrical edge. It's dark, and deep...very very deep..."soon you'll attain the stability you strive for in the the only way that it is granted, in a place upon the fossils of your time." Is this not just as relevant today as it was back then? Is that not the mark of great lyrics? Check this out, "You and me we keep walking around and see all the bull(bleep) around us...try to keep our minds on what's going down, can't help but see the rhinoceros around us...." The reference to Ionesco and the whole absurd choo-choo train is unmistakable. "Lather" DEFINES Jung's Puer Aeturnus ( eternal child ), and turns it on its head. "Greasy Heart" may be the only really dated song ( along with the cover, maybe - there are still alot of those mushroom makers floating around, maybe in less secure hands now ), but Gracey's ascerbic rantings against the shallowness of our relationships is perhaps even more relevant today. And then they throw in the weirdness of "Triad" and the hum-this-tune-all-day-in-your-head "If You Feel" just for good measure. I hate to burst your bubble Baxter bretheren, but "Waiting" ( as great as it was ) was just a warm up for what was to come next.
