"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 such as "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 it’s no surprise to hear the wonderful workouts by dual guitarists Jorma Kaukonen and Paul Kantner along with Grace Slick and Marty Balin’s power vocals plus the bass of Jack Casady and Spencer Drydens’ drum work on this watershed release.
Mastered impeccably by Friday Music's Joe Reagoso (Jefferson Airplane/Hot Tuna/Grateful Dead). The LP will be pressed for a short time on translucent orange marble 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 12x24" poster of "Brumus" and photo insert, which truly make this an even more rewarding event for the fans.
