The Great! Society

Before joining Jefferson Airplane, Grace Slick sang lead and played various instruments for the Great Society, who were nearly as popular as Jefferson Airplane in the early days of the San Francisco psychedelic scene. Instrumentally, the Great Society were not as disciplined as Airplane. But they were at least their equals in imagination, infusing their probing songwriting with Indian influences, minor key melodic shifts, and groundbreaking, reverb-soaked psychedelic guitar by Slick's brother-in-law, Darby Slick. Darby was also responsible for penning "Somebody to Love," which Grace brought with her to Airplane, who took it into the Top Five in 1967. The Great Society broke up in late 1966 after recording only one locally released single; after Jefferson Airplane became stars, Columbia issued a couple of live albums of the Great Society performing at San Francisco's Matrix Club in 1966. ~ Richie Unterberger, Rovi

Very, very cool.

Excuse me... for those who think this track is unlistenable . . . I have what I thought was the only recording ever released of the Great Society... was amazed to hear this pop up on Pandora. For the period, this was incredible. Production values for the psychedelic bands had not matured yet. Give us a break, this was pre-Beatles era. Fantastic cut and a wonderful surprise.

I knew this track existed, but I had never heard it before, in all my 48 years. I like it!
This is a great original that I never new came before the Jefferson Airplane version that I have listened to for decades. How sweet!
Opinions are like *ssholes, everyones got one!
I don't know what "one song" The Herald is referring to, but I would recommend listening to more than one song before taking time to write a review. You may look quite foolish.
The amazing music of the Great Society had a huge impact on music. This is where Grace Slick got her start before joining Jefferson Airplane. Definately worth listening to, for those that can listen to more than the first song Pandora plays.
jigaboos.
Based on the one song that Pandora plays, I think the above bio is being overly generous to this Society. Almost unlistenable at best.
