Jefferson Airplane - Surrealistic Pillow [Full Album]



 
 
 
Jefferson Airplane - Surrealistic Pillow [Full Album

     

    

The Airplane's legendary and historic second album in it's entirety (probably my #1 favorite release of all-time and this is coming from a die-hard Black Sabbath, King Crimson & Amy Winehouse fan and of course the J.A.)
****************************************­****************************************­*****
TECHNICAL NOTE: The original 1966 RCA stereophonic mix is presented here, famously known for it's lush reverberation effect (the way I love it). Most of the reverb you hear was actually the result of the larger tracking rooms (with high ceilings) the group utilized at RCA studios as well as other factors like mic placement during the sessions. It was NOT artificially added after the initial sessions through processing as many fans or critics have speculated over the years. Though there are a small legion of listeners who do prefer the more upfront but drier sounding monaural mix. Unfortunately for me (mr. uploader mind you) this nearky kills the essence and vibe of the whole listening experience this LP is known for...just my two cents.
----------------------------------------­----------------------------------------­----------------------
It's time we walked away set me free
I must move away leave you be
Time's been good to us my friend
Wait and see how it will end
We come and go as we please...that's how it must be
Here in Crystal Chandelier I'm home
Too many days I've left unstoned
If you doubt my happiness
What full pleasure feels in the Sun
Ah, don't you know I'm runnin' home...to a place to you unknown
I take great peace in your sitting there
Searching for myself I find a place there
I see the people of the world
Where they are and what they could be
I can but dance behind your smile...
you were the world to me for a while
-P. Kantner

Surrealistic Pillow was originally released as RCA Victor LPM/LSP 3766 during February of 1967, and peaked at #3 on Billboard's Pop Albums chart, driven by "White Rabbit" and "Somebody to Love," which peaked at #8 and #5 respectively on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.
Original drummer Alexander 'Skip' Spence had left the band in mid-1966, replaced by a jazz drummer from Los Angeles, Spencer Dryden, a nephew of Charlie Chaplin. New lead vocalist Grace Slick, formerly of the Great Society, joined the band in 1966. Both Slick and Dryden debuted with the band on records with this album and its attendant singles, thus completing the best-known line-up of the group, which would remain stable until Dryden's departure in early 1970. It is also considered to be one of the quintessential albums of the 1960s counterculture movement.
In 2003, the album was ranked number 146 on Rolling Stone magazine's list of the "500 Greatest Albums of All Time".

DISClaimer:
My intent is to let younger listeners (such as myself) experience complete albums they've mighta missed out on before instead of just by song to song. I feel it's just a better experience that way. But I will say this though, if you find an album you truly fall in love with by all means buy an actual PHYSICAL copy of it (preferably on vinyl) and let it become a part of your life. Thanks...now enjoy!!!
