One of the most experimental albums by Jefferson Airplane, After Bathing at Baxter's conveys the sound and spirit of the psychedelic era that shaped the group. Exemplary songs include "The Ballad Of You & Me & Pooneil" and "Watch Her Ride."
Crown Of Creation was a commercial success, breaking the top ten in the album charts. The band’s sound continued to evolve into heavier rock with Jorma Kaukonen and Jack Casady’s potent teamwork most evident on songs like “House At Pooneil Corners.”
Volunteers embodied the revolutionary political ideas of many young people in 1969 with the album’s strident opening and closing tracks, “We Can Be Together” and the title song. In contrast, “Good Shepherd” and “Wooden Ships” are moody and pristine.
"First Pull Up, Then Pull Down," the second Hot Tuna album, continued the bands focus on classic blues songs but with a more electrified sound complemented with jazzy licks from violinist, Papa John Creach who also played with the Jefferson Airplane.
