It's so difficult to actually place them in some sort of favorite order, but I would say 1) BAXTER'S - It's the most freely experimental and trippiest, and was way ahead of it's time ( I first heard it while tripping on some very heavy acid, and have very fond memories of that time. Although, come to think of it, I did to all their albums at one time or another ,butthis one is the most fun) - I especially like TWO HEADS, REJOYCE, and WILD TIME; although what makes this the one is that the songs are arranged in a series of free-form suites which fit together perfectly. 2)VOLUNTEERS - The politics of this record reflect the times at the end of the sixties. There are some incredibly symphonic psychedelic songs on this one. ESKIMO BLUE DAY, HEY FREDRICK are probably the creme-de-la-creme, but I have to mention TURN MY LIFE DOWN, WOODEN SHIPS, VOLUNTEERS (What a call to action!), WE CAN BE TOGETHER. Hell, even the filler stuff-THE FARM, SONG FOR ALL SEASONS, MEADOWLANDS, is better than most of the tripe other bands at that time were producing. Give me Airplane tripe over any other bands best, anyday. GRACE'S singing is just superb, and the interplay between Jack , Jorma, and Paul was absolutely amazing and at many times, downrigt gorgeous. And that album cover! 3)CROWN OF CREATION- Again, picking and ranking favorites is hard. This album has incredible reverb whaa-whaa by JORMA, and incredible fuzz bass by JACK. The album cover is another great one- The airplane always integrated wonderful artwork into the mix as well as their awsome sound. CROWN OF CREATION, ICE CREAM PHEONIX , STAR TRACK are standouts, but again, this entire record is just over the top! 4) SURREALISTIC PILLOW - This is a classic, although it is much quieter and intrspective than their later work. Remember, this was quite revolutionary when it was released in 1967- around the same time THE BEATLES released SGT. PEPPER'S, they both had a mellow gentle, psychedelic feel to them. Altough I love and have ALL the records JEFFERSON AIRPLANE released , I think their strongest period was between 1967 and 1969. AND as far as live albums go, 1)BLESS IT'S POINTED LITTLE HEAD - This captures their energy at its best with versions of FAT ANGEL, BEAR MELT,ROCK ME BABY, THE OTHER SIDE OF THIS LIFE topping an album wher every song on it is great. It leaves you just wanting MORE! 2)THIRTY SECONDS OVER WINTERLAND - This is my favorite of the later Airplane, and it shows an incredibly tight and mature band at it's absolute pinnicle. HAVE YOU SEEN THE SAUCERS (yes I have, and it was awsome!), FEEL SO GOOD, TRIAL BY FIRE stand out on an album which is absolutely excellent, but so so short. ( I know more stuff was recorded at the time and maybe someday, if we areblessed, it will be released in an expanded version of THIRTY SECONDS.) Again, PEACE and LOVE to all the people out ther. Thanks for letting me share this with you.
