"Dragonfly" is the first album by Jefferson Starship, the band that rose from the ashes after Jefferson Airplane crashed. Some members came from JA (Paul Kantner, Grace Slick) and some were new, notably lead guitarist Craig Chaquico and long-time blues/jazz electric violinist, Papa John Creach, who was in his 50s at the time. In addition, Marty Balin co-wrote and sang the hit "Caroline."

There are a lot of things to like on this album. Chaquico's guitar work is nothing short of amazing, especially considering that he was only 20 when "Dragonfly" was recorded. Check it out on "Ride the Tiger," tasty indeed. Also, Papa John's violin adds interesting sonic texture.

Grace Slick's vocals, as usual, are soaring and powerful. She is truly a pleasure to listen to.

And of course, any album that involves Kantner and Slick is going to have some songs with cosmic/obtuse lyrics, such as:

"I never thought there were corners in time/'Til I was told to stand in one"

and

"If it rains again tonight, I can think light years ahead."

These are from "Hyperdrive", the last song and the tour de force of the album.

What does that mean? I don't know. Just listen with your favorite mood altering substance, ponder and enjoy. You'll thank me later.
