Surrealistic Pillow is Jefferson Airplane’s sophomore album, released in 1967, and saw drummer Spencer Dryden and singer Grace Slick join the band. It was a major hit, reaching #3 on the Billboard charts and was certified Platinum. The album is a key work of early psychedelic rock and one of the finest albums of the 1960s.

Psychedelic scholars have long tried to pin down just what the Grateful Dead's Jerry Garcia did on this album (besides contribute some guitar playing) to earn a credit as 'spiritual adviser.' But the real trip is the Airplane's hallucinatory distillation of folk-blues vocals, garage-rock guitar, and crisp pop songwriting. Grace Slick's vocal showcases - 'White Rabbit' and 'Somebody To Love' - made Surrealistic Pillow a commercial smash during San Francisco's Summer of Love, and Marty Balin's spectral 'Today' is still the greatest ballad of that city's glory days. – Rolling Stone
