It sounded like Maurice Ravel on LSD, and the singer's icy voice made tender natures' blood freeze in their veins: In July 1967, the legendary Summer of Love, "White Rabbit" by Jefferson Airplane conquered the top ten of the US single charts. It was already the second bang of the drum that the band from San Francisco landed in this wildly moved flower power year. Only a few weeks earlier, on June 16th, the very day when one of the first big rock festivals started in Monterey, Jefferson Airplane celebrated their hit premiere with "Somebody To Love": 5th place in the USA. Like "White Rabbit", the song came from the successful album "Surrealistic Pillow", which was released exactly fifty years ago on February 1, 1967.
