3 stars To create this album pour some trippy hippie rock into a bowl full of folk rock and add a large measure of The Byrds. What you get is a nice mid-60s flower children album that doesn't really have any progressive bits at all but is still a good listen. Any, of course, it is the genesis of a teriffic band in the history of rock music and protoprog. This does not feature Grace Slick who joined later but I like the voice of Signe Anderson as much as Grace, although they each have their strengths. Best songs contained here:"Let Me In", "Blues From an Airplane", and "Chauffeur Blues". If you are a fan of trippy music or Byrds music than you should enjoy this record. Not one of the best of Jefferson Airplane's catalogue, but not the worst either. 3 solid stars for it's historical value.
