2 stars I discovered this great Califiornian band in 1971 with Woodstock.

This first album is far to reach the quality of the tracks they played during this festival (but this release was issued three years before). Although the lineup is almost similar, the major difference of course is that Grace Slick will only join on the next album. On this one, Signe Anderson does the job, but can not really be compared to Grace (IMO).

This work is quite representative of the mid-sixties. Pop, politically correct (no rebel song here as they will have the fame for later on).

Not yet psychedelic but rather folky. The band will need to grow up before producing more interesting stuff. There are no real highlight to point out here.

Two stars.
