“White Rabbit”. Jefferson Airplane. (Ruth Discofagia Cover)

Jefferson Airplane were probably the most representative group of West Coast acid rock, and the San Francisco counterculture movement. On their second LP, “Surrealistic Pillow”, the charismatic vocalist Grace Slick joined the band and brought “White Rabbit”, a track she already played with her previous band, The Great Society. Published as a single in the Summer of Love, June 1967, it reached number 8 on the Billboard. With a rhythm halfway between the military march and Ravel’s Bolero, and a flamencoided chord progression, Slick, with her powerful contralto voice, as a psychedelic sorceress, casts some hallucinogenic spells and melismas, with allusions to Lewis Carroll and the entheogens, and creating one of the most iconic songs of the whole history of psychedelic rock.
