"After Bathing At Baxter's" by Jefferson Airplane
Jefferson Airplane "After Bathing At Baxter's" 1967 (USA)
Choosing a classic album to represent 1967 is a tough one! Ultimately I had to go with the third Jefferson Airplane album (their second with the classic Grace Slick lineup), which is my personal favorite of theirs. Initially they sought Frank Zappa as a producer, and the suite-like structure of The Mothers' "Aboslutely Free" album seems to have been a key influence. "Baxter's" was a commercial disappointment after their smash hit "Surrealistic Pillow" album from earlier in the year, although the very weird single "The Ballad Of You & Me & Pooneil" did very nearly make the American Top 40.
