Yes, me too! Which is precisely         why  all  people, sh/could  take  a  brief moment  to  just realize... When something/one (like RP asnd the music here) rocks your world... you owe it to yourself... and even more so those around you who love and want you happy/better... to take a moment to first... enjoy that moment...  We are all, and have only been, right there/here with all you/y'all.... as scary as that togetherness may be.  Nowhere else to run/hide until Elon finds some place... LOL, but I won't be able to afford that one... 

That's what truly scares me more than sharks! I can't count on anybody far as I can see  When we dive into the ocen it can literally try to take m/your life if we let it.  Amongst my family, my brothers (the precious who remain) will/would charge through flames and walls and shennanigans of all sorts to save me, their sis.  I was raised with such men, so if it all goes down while I'm within your reach, latch on and I will do my best to help you if I can.  Right now BillG is doing his best to save all of us.  And perhaps there's a reason he plays what he does when he does so... only he can never really know... just ask yourself what it means to you.  And rejoice. 

W O W, so funny (and sad) to leave such absurdly long song comment.  BillG will surely delete it... or never play Jefferson Airplane White Rabbit again... and if not, pity the fool who scrolls to the song comments and gets this.  Make tomorrow better than today if you can, that's what we can aim for.

When my older brother played side 2 of Abbey Road for me.  It was late at night, the house was dark (parents were out), and, yes, I was stoned.

I agree, More Than A Feeling... another song that comes to mind is  Tangled Up In Blue - Bob Dylan  it can give me goosebumps!

The only version that I like even more that this is the Great Society's live version recorded at The Matrix before Grace bolted for J.A. San Fran-meets-Coltrane.

                     Guess what! the exotic bird on the passanger seat
                         Is only in your head du du du vögel she said.
                                                    Oh

                         I was so glad she'd called me by my name
              All of a sudden, I knew what's meant by mambo talk whisper
                                         Oh  ya ha ah ahhh

This was Grace's baby, but Paul, Marty, Jorma and Jack knew just what to do with it!  Paul's vision and passion will forever inspire me!

Just read Paul Kantner died.  2016 sure is off to a sad start for rock and roll deaths.

RIP, Paul.  To me, this song is your group's high water mark, even if you got it from Grace's old band.

Jorma Kaukonen (lead guitar) and Jack Casady (bass) became my instant rock idols when I bought this album the first month of its release... and they're still performing together and still making great music as Hot Tuna. Love 'em!

I remember when this first came out as I was mesmerized.  Incredible tune followed by Somebody to Love on the charts from one of the best rock LPs of all time.  My brothers and I would play the song, trying to figure out the lyrics and what it all meant.  We'd play it over and over and over again until we got the lyrics (or at least what thought were the lyrics).  Too young to get the full 'hooka' and 'feed your head' references but I always pause when I hear it as it brings a huge smile to my face (singing along to its unique lyrics/melody).  Grace Slick at her best.  Had a very similar feeling when first hearing A Whiter Shade of Pale.  I knew music was changing for the better.  Then, hearing New York Mining Disaster 1941 just cemented what an incredible year of music from 1967.  Some oldies never die, nor should they.

"Why" by Annie Lennox.
Sitting in the back of a rented minivan in the parking lot of The Fess Parker hotel in Santa Barbara, cleaning lenses, labeling film, and loading cameras on a photo shoot. 
The three of us were silent and still for the whole song, and for several minutes afterward.
I still feel that sensation when that song plays, partly because I've managed to never overplay it.

Where it all started. Best selling album of the year that included some spectacular albums. Not just drugs but the whole feeling of growing, learning and becoming feeling that hits the 17-22 period of everyone's life. So many books to read. So much wisdom from ages past. So much to learn from one another... Whole album catches that period of life when everything seems possible, befor reality and responsibilities arrive. 

M,y favorite from the album is 'Coming Back to Me" best relationship song that does not make the guy a wimp or woman a witch...

Thank you.

If you look at this really close and cross your eyes a bit, interesting things happen in your phenomenal field.
