Psychedelic Rock

Yes, I remember Gracie Slick and The Airplane quite well indeed; to this day, White Rabbit and Volunteers Of America remain among my favorites from their output.

I'm not hearing any Jefferson Airplane, and I don't think I'd call them psychedelic, as a Canadian listener.
Grace Slick had a strong, loud voice, and these two girls sound more like half of The Mamas and Papas,
more of a doubling of a soft, folksinger voice.
Caviare Days is also more musical, not like a folk band getting electrified.
I heard a wider musicianship with more dramatic changeups than any L.S.D. influenced band can negotiate.
That's what broke up Jefferson Airplane, Grace Slick getting so fried she became very unreliable.
The other band members, uh, kept it together, rising to their occasion, and became Jefferson Starship.
Yes, a lot of hippies were waiting for that silver spaceship, mother nature's silver seed, to take them away.

After listening, I was left with the question, I wonder what authentic knitwear they wore,
and I think they should try an Abba song to develop their own songwriting.

"Psychedelic Rock" brings back faded, jaded and faint memories of Hair doing Aquarius "When the moon is in the seventh house"...

"and Jupiter aligns with Mars", yeah, and I can say this with mirror-like resolve,
yeah, the good old hair days, long hair, soft hair, hair to lash with, hair to wash with,
and hair to gently wave along warm skin.
I think the Russians have a term for this, follicula frolicski.

When the effects used to create psychedelic rock were used by hard rock players,
I was thinking their style could be called psychodelic rock, but it became heavy metal.
That's still heavy mental for me.
Poor Jimi Hendrix, only having one volume control on his Marshall stack,
not the pre-amp and main combo that was first manufactured in 1974.
