80 of 1001 Albums: Jefferson Airplane's Surrealistic Pillow

  When you see an album called Surrealistic Pillow then you know you're about to return to the usual sounds of the 60s after your one little break with Sinatra. It wasn't terrible though, and I was actually familiar with one of the songs on the album called, 'Somebody To Love'.  Also, the female vocal was a welcome relief to hear since it seems the majority of the artist of recent have been male vocals. 
  Other than these two staple things this album is quite generic to the time. It was more enjoyable than the other offerings recently given to me like Cream, or Frank Zappa in this genre, but it didn't turn me into a fan of the genre. I can tell we are beginning to shape the style of rock into things we will hear more in the 70s though, so I enjoy hearing how the times are changing in music even though it's still only 1967. My only wish is that Jefferson Airplane would have titled their album something other than 'Surrealistic Pillow'. It doesn't single them out amongst the others in this time.
