Monday, January 28th at 8pm: JEFFERSON AIRPLANE - Surrealistic Pillow
We celebrate Marty Balin's birthday Monday with this gem from the Summer of Love. Released in February 1967, the album went gold after spending over a year on the Billboard 200 chart, thanks to "Somebody to Love" and "White Rabbit." Also on here are Jorma Kaukonen's Fahey-esque "Embryonic Journey", and Balin's driving "Plastic Fantastic Lover." The name, by the way, comes from the album's "Spiritual Advisor" (a.k.a. uncredited Producer) Jerry Garcia, who said the album sounded "as Surrealistic as a pillow is soft." Feed your head with this one Monday night...
