The Airplane Gets Groovy

Originally posted May 22, 2008

From a surplus of options at YouTube last week to slender pickings today. I found a few things that related to the last few days’ posts but nothing I really liked. (In the case of the Indigo Girls, nothing that I could post here; embedding had been disabled on a couple of very nice clips.)

So I wandered back to last Saturday and the Jefferson Airplane and found a clip of the group from the Smothers Brothers television show in 1967. The Airplane lip-synchs both of its hits – “White Rabbit” and “Somebody to Love” – in a couple of utterly psychedelic videos. (There’s an audio glitch in “Somebody to Love” that’s mildly annoying, but the video is worth watching anyway.)
