Of course, I am completely biased and under Slick hypnotic influence. She is one of the female singer I prefer Patti Smith being the other one.

Both have "g u t s" pardon me ladies. Some good tracks five or six but that's it. Three stars. Dedicated to drummer Dryden for his 30th birthday, this song brings psychedelic shivers with elegic and sad mood on the theme of passing youth and entering the "adult world".

Grace's vocal is simply brilliant. The closer "House at Pooneil Corners" is pshychedelic masterpiece with heavy and menacing, dark rhythm - one of sadly overlooked track in many later anthologies.

The result is perhaps the best produced and the most creative album in their entire career. There is practically not a weak moment on this album, although David Crosby's free love statement in "Triad", Balin's aching tenor in "Share a Little Joke", and amazingly crafted Kantner-Slick songs "If You Feel", "Greasy Heart" and the title track are hightlights. Excellent album from start to finish and even if you are not fan of Californian acid music scene or this band in particular, try to listen at least "Crown of Creation".

Although coming in under 3 minute CoC moves through several musical passages. The bass and lead guitar dominating the first and then the vocals the other two ending with an acapella harmony at the end. Very innovative stuff for the time.

With a myriad of background sound effects, voices and a beautiful mix of acoustic guitar and bass this song is very deep.

Like masons the band adds another layer with its guitarist Jorma Kaukonen buzz like lead guitar that simulates the weeping lady at the end. Very powerful stuff for If You Feel a bright spirited rocker that feature Marty Balin on lead vocals.

The song shows the great chemistry between Dryden, Kaukonen and bassist Jack Cassady. No dark political themes here or clash of the generations just some fun. Make love flying baby Make love flying.

After arriving in your ears with the crash and distortion of a heavily fed backed guitar it adds a spooky sounding organ with Cassidy's great bass lines. The songs borrows the chourus once from the song Me, You and Pooniel from After Bathing at Baxter's but that is it's only nod to the previous song of similar name. This is to me one of the first progressive rock songs I can point too. The soaring guitar sound Kaukonen gets at point is very synthesizer like but of course we are still two years from that instrument being invented.

Jack Cassidy plays bass like no one before him. Trading lead lines with Kaukonen and other times just filling in all space with that great bass. Drums are solid throughout and the vocals are haunting.

It is much more diverse than their debut album drawing influences from the roots of it all (Elvis, Eddie Cochran and Johnny Cash) with an injection of nitrobilly punk rock that probably owes more /5(4).
