Crown of Creation doesn't feature hits as popular as "Somebody to Love," "White Rabbit," or "Volunteers," but Jefferson Airplane 's fourth album proves the combustible group truly evolved, even as the band was gradually dissolving. The 11-song LP begins with Grace Slick singing about drummer Spencer Dryden's nudity-related arrest on "Lather," followed by Marty Balin's psych-romance "In Time" and "Triad," a David Crosby-penned song about three-way love that was rejected by the Byrds . She later shows off her trademark howls on the title track, while guitarist Jorma Kaukonen and bassist Jack Casady add even heavier interplay than the group's prior efforts. Despite hitting No. 6 on the pop album chart, the title single peaked at 64, a disappointment from their earlier successes. Still, Crown of Creation shouldn't be overlooked by any psychedelic lovers – Bay Area peers like the Grateful Dead and Santana seem more widely remembered – as it offers some of the Airplane's most intriguing music.

Jefferson Airplane’s debut show was on August 13, 1965 at the Matrix nightclub in San Francisco. The first performance featured Marty Balin on vocals, Paul Kantner on vocals/rhythm guitar, and Jorma Kaukonen on lead guitar. Signe Anderson, (who sang on Jefferson Airplane’s first recording “Jefferson Airplane Takes Off”) also performed. The bass player, Jack Casady and drummer Skip Spence, (who was later one of the original members of Moby Grape) joined the band two months later. Spencer Dryden became the drummer in June of 1966 and Grace Slick joined as vocalist in October of 1966. The band performed the first concert for Bill Graham at the legendary Fillmore Auditorium in San Francisco in February of Airplane performed at the Berkeley Folk Festival, Monterey Jazz Festival, Monterey Pop Festival, Woodstock, and Altamont. They had hit singles White Rabbit and Somebody to Love, from the album “Surrealistic Pillow”. They were on the cover of Life Magazine in 1968. The band co- headlined with the Doors in Europe in the summer of 1968. Many legendary bands opened for the Airplane: Grateful Dead, Santana, The Doors, Jimi Hendrix, Creedence Clearwater Revival, The Who, Janis Joplin, Steve Miller, and many band was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1996

Marty Balin gave Anderson flowers. The band’s manager and promoter, Bill Graham, led a standing ovation. Many in the audience wept.

These were CDs recorded directly from the soundboard at the live shows and sold to concert attendees who wished to purchase them. They were also sold online for a short time.

The band also delivered some of the most powerful live performances in rock history, with singers and instrumentalists improvising adventurously, yet still preserving the essential and distinctive natures of the songs in their repertoire.

Jefferson Starship returned with new studio album Jefferson's Tree of Liberty in 2008, which was the first by the band to feature vocalist Cathy Richardson, who had recently replaced Mangano, and the first since 1984's Nuclear Furniture to feature returning frontman Freiberg, who replaced Balin.
