MINI BLOG: Jefferson Airplane Takes Off

Jefferson Airplane Takes Off (1966)
I must admit that before listening to this album, I didn’t know anything about Jefferson Airplane besides “White Rabbit” and that they turned into Jefferson Starship. Well, ok, so I also felt the strong mystique surrounding the band and its psychedelic rock. But for such an enigmatic and psychedelic band … their debut album sure was folky! To be honest, this is before Grace Slick joined the band and it was only 1966. However, a couple of interesting songs (“Chauffeur Blues”) and a decent cover (“Tobacco Road”) don’t really save this from being anything but ordinary. However, consider my interest piqued as to how they became cool enough to write “White Rabbit.” [3.8/10.0] Ok
