Details

[Edit]

The debut Jefferson Airplane album was dominated by singer Marty Balin, who wrote or co-wrote all the original material and sang most of the lead vocals in his heartbreaking tenor with Paul Kantner and Signe Anderson providing harmonies and backup. (Anderson's lead vocal on "Chauffeur Blues" indicated she was at least the equal of her successor, Grace Slick, as a belter.) The music consisted mostly of folk-rock love songs, the most memorable of which were "It's No Secret" and "Come Up the Years." (There was also a striking version of Dino Valente's "Get Together" recorded years before the Youngbloods' hit version.) Jorma Kaukonen already displayed a talent for mixing country, folk, and blues riffs in a rock context and Jack Casady already had a distinctive bass sound. But the Airplane of Balin, Kantner, Kaukonen, Anderson, Casady, and Spence is to be distinguished from the Balin, Kantner, Kaukonen, Casady, Slick, and Dryden version of the band that would emerge on record five months later chiefly by Balin's dominance. Later, Grace Slick would become the group's vocal and visual focal point. On Takes Off, the Airplane was Balin's group. The 2003 reissue of Takes Off includes eight bonus tracks: uncensored versions of "Let Me In" and "Run Around," an early version of "Go to Her," previously unreleased alternate versions of "Chauffeur Blues" and "And I Like It," as well as tracks "Runnin' 'Round This World," "High Flying Bird," and "It's Alright."
