Product Notes

First Record to Put Countercultural San Francisco Scene on Mainstream Music Map: 1967 Album Includes Seminal Top 10 Singles 'Someone to Love' and 'White Rabbit' Mobile Fidelity Puts Surrealism Back Into Kaleidoscopic Surrealistic Pillow Via Restored Original Mono Sound: Phenomenal Clarity, Balance, Tonality, and Detail Acid-Rock Experimentalism and Folk-Based Arrangements Yield Mysteriousness, Darkness, and Beauty: Clarion-Call Singing From Grace Slick Matches Virtuosic Playing by Marty Balin, Jerry Garcia, and Company They were the best of times for Jefferson Airplane, and the good vibes are heard throughout Surrealistic Pillow. The group's first record with vocalist Grace Slick and drummer Spencer Dryden, the 1967 effort bowed as the first psychedelic-rock breakout from the potent San Francisco scene. By bringing the then-unpolluted counterculture to the attention of the mainstream, the effort ranked by Rolling Stone as the 146th Greatest Album of All Time opened up creative vistas for likeminded artists that followed. Working within concise melodic frameworks, the band folds acid-rock experimentalism into folk-derived constructs with a blend of mysteriousness, assuredness, darkness, beauty, and romanticism that mirror the very traits Slick possessed. Her clarion-call voice leaps out from the explosive, fractal-pulsating smash 'Somebody to Love' like a challenge that cannot be ignored Mastered from the original master tapes, Mobile Fidelity's 180 gram 45 rpm mono 2 LP set grant Surrealistic Pillow audiophile-grade sound remarkable for it's balance, clarity, and tonality. Listeners can finally enjoy Jefferson Airplane's blockbuster album in faithful-to-the-original mono without having to pay a premium. Along with immersive detail and dynamics, the level of instrumental and vocal separation on these reissues allows the songs to emerge with renewed perspective. In analog and digital, Mobile Fidelity puts the surrealism back into Surrealistic Pillow.
