You are the crown of creation.
You are the crown of creation,
And you've got no place to go.

Soon you'll attain the stability you strive for,
In the only way that it's granted:
In a place among the fossils of our time.

In loyalty to their kind
They cannot tolerate our minds.
In loyalty to our kind
We cannot tolerate their obstruction!

Life is change.
How it differs from the rocks.
I've seen their ways too often for my liking.
New worlds to gain.
My life is to survive and be alive
for you.

"Triad" from this album sung by Grace really got my attention in 1968
.
hey, i was a 14 year old boy 
This is crap
Thanx RP
Was in Lima Peru spring of 73' met some gringos  they mentioned they were the chemist for the Airplane. yeah right, but then they pulled out a viseine bottle and made us some blotter on a napkin. We took it when we climbed an obscure Inca ruin outside of Cusco. Climbed to about 16,000 feet in my cowboy boot on what turned out to be a festival day in the local village we started in. Incredible time
 RIP Paul indeed. A bad year for rock n' roll legends thus far.

He also said that "Crystal Ship" was about a glass of brandy.  Sure, Jim.  Whatever you say.

 
FWIW, the Crystal Ship refers to the oil drilling platforms off the coast back in the 60's and in particular up by Santa Barbara that were all lit up at night looking ships from the distance.

And this song, a 10 from a great album 
sure didn't age well

Blows Against the Empire


I think not
 

 
I agree that Blows Against the Empire was quite good, but after that... Everyone seems in agreement that latter day JS were awful and apparently at least had the good grace to not use "Jefferson" in the name (although that may have been compelled by legal means).

Holds up well...

My favorite song on the album is "Lather"...  How young, naïve, innocent and romantic we were...

Once upon a time, a long-long time ago, in a land far-far away, where people who looked much like we do today dressed differently, acted a bit differently believed in a future that was not yet ready to become today



 
Yep.  My fave cut though is If You Feel. 
I like the music but I misprize the cover. Bombs are horrible.

Some fiery music on this record -- 'Greasy Heart' is as passionate as anyone can sing -- and it really sends me back to some wild parties!
One of my favorites. Thanks for playing it.
I love that there is a 10-year gap in the comments for this song, and people pick right up and start furiously debating again whether or not "The Lizard King" was worthy of all the hype...
When there was revolution in the air.
Heady times.

Well, he was an authority on being boring, but this song is dreadful, particularly the lyrics.

While you\'re on this album, could you play Triad, written by David Crosby? I think it\'s a much better song.
This sounded very good on RP. Well-placed, too, in a great set of music. Thanks Bill.

Man... I wish I was alive and kicking during the 60\'s. Great song by a band my parents introduced me to. :clap:
By God, were we young or what? :p
Now play Hyperdrive off the Dragonfly album and see what the young-uns think! ;^)
Haha, I have a 2x15 guitar speaker cab, that was used by Jefferson Airplane! Wonder if its the one used on this, or if it was recorded direct.
