Grace Slick belongs to the icons of pop music of the 1960s. The singer with the dark alto voice, who set out in 1970 to pour Richard Nixon LSD into the tea, joined Jefferson Airplane after Signe Toly Anderson left the band. On Surrealistic Pillow she could be heard for the first time and produced with Marty Balin (guitar, vocals), Paul Kantner (vocals, guitar), Jorma Kaukonen (guitar, vocals), Jack Casady (bass) and Spencer Dryden (drums) directly the songs Somebody to Love and White Rabbit, which are inseparably connected with the band.
The album's title Surrealistic Pillow is supposedly due to Grateful Dead guitarist Jerry Garcia, who when listening to the recordings found that the music sounded as surreal as a pillow. The 180g vinyl double LP with 45 rpm in mono was mastered by Krieg Wunderlich together with Rob LoVerde for Mobile Fidelity Sound Lab. Limited edition with serial number
"The first LP was all well and good, but only with Surrealistic Pillow lifted Jefferson Airplane to the rock heaven off. And that they owed in part the entry of Grace Slick."

"After RCA had released stereo and mono versions of the dazzling work between Folk, Mamas & Papas harmonies and Rock on a Gold CD in 1996, Mobile Fidelity Sound Labs now release the final mono version on two 45 rpm LPs. A hell of a thing." (Audio, March 2016)
