Flashback 50 Jefferson Airplane's Crown of Creation
On the next Echoes, a Flashback 50 to 1968 and the fourth album by Jefferson Airplane, Crown of Creation. Jefferson Airplane were, along with Jimi Hendrix, the flagship of psychedelic rock, more so than the Grateful Dead or Pink Floyd, who really hadn’t arrived in the states yet. And they used psychedelic affectations to embrace a world of sound from folk to jazz to classical, but in a way that was uniquely Jefferson Airplane. Crown of Creation lived up to its title with many of the Airplane’s most inventive and powerful songs. We fly Jefferson Airplane’s Crown of Creation, on an Echoes Flashback 50.
