Jefferson Airplane was a California-based band from San Francisco who (along with other bands) pioneered the American counterculture movement, as well as the genre of "psychedelic" rock.

Formed in 1965, the group defined the San Francisco Sound and was the first from the Bay Area to achieve international commercial success. They were headliners at the 2 most famous American rock festivals of the 1960s - Monterey (1967), and Woodstock (1969).

Jefferson Airplane's 1967 break-out record Surrealistic Pillow ranks on the short list of most significant recordings of the "Summer of Love". Two songs from that album, "Somebody to Love" and "White Rabbit", are among Rolling Stone's "500 Greatest Songs of All Time.".

This 2-disc set contains 32 tracks in all which were recorded by the band in the years between 1966-1972.
