"When you listen to this album, you just don't get 'peace and love man'..." Jack Casady
1968 was an amazing year for rock music, and San Francisco was the place to be for legendary classic rock bands like Jefferson Airplane.
After stunning success with three gold and platinum Lps under their belts, the classic quintet of Paul Kantner, Marty Balin, Jorma Kaukonen, Jack Casady, Grace Slick and Spencer Dryden delivered their masterwork Crown Of Creation. The Lp would become one of the most important albums of their long career featuring one of the most artistic and sobering covers of our time.
With a groundswell of support from the hip record buying public to major airplay at both underground FM and pop radio stations, the Lp was received incredibly well. Featuring two hit singles with Crown Of Creation and Greasy Heart, both tunes would go on to become rock music and social anthems for the turbulent 60s. Even more stellar album tracks like If You Feel, Lather and Triad (written with David Crosby) would all become standard Airplane classics in the years to follow.
Jam bands began with groups like Jefferson Airplane. Therefore its no surprise to hear the wonderful workouts by dual guitarists Jorma Kaukonen and Paul Kantner along with Grace Slick and Marty Balins power vocals plus the bass of Jack Casady and Spencer Drydens drum work on this watershed release.
Friday Music is honored to present another exciting installment in our Jefferson Airplane 180 Gram Audiophile Vinyl Series with their masterpiece Crown Of Creation Lp. Their fourth RCA album showcases a very hip band that has stood the test of time now for over five decades.
Mastered impeccably by Joe Reagoso (Jefferson Airplane/Hot Tuna/Grateful Dead), this first time audiophile vinyl release will become one of the more important albums in your classic rock collection. To enhance your Airplane listening pleasure, the Lp will be pressed for a short time on orange vinyl at RTI, featuring new liner notes from Jorma Kaukonen and Jack Casady in a first time gatefold cover, as well as including the rare 12 x 24 poster of "Brumus" and photo insert, which truly make this an even more rewarding event for the fans.
