Jefferson Airplane Discography

In early 1965 Marty Balin began to put together a group to play at the Matrix. The initial line-up of this group, which made it's debut on August 16, 1965, was Balin, Paul Kantner, Jorma Kaukonen, Signe Toly, Bob Harvey and Jerry Peloquin. Kaukonen suggested the group name; Jefferson Airplane. Before the end of the year Peloquin was replaced by Skip Spence, Harvey was replaced by Jack Casady and Signe Toly married and became Signe Anderson. The group signed to RCA Victor in December 1965. This line-up recorded 3 singles and one album.

During 1966 Spence was replaced by Spencer Dryden and Signe Anderson was replaced by Grace Slick who was the lead singer with the Great Society. The new, "classic" line-up of the group (Balin, Kantner, Slick, Kaukonen, Casady, Dryden) released their first single at the start of 1967 and shortly afterwards the second Airplane LP Surrealistic Pillow. During the following three years the group released a number of albums and singles and appeared at major festivals including Monterey and Woodstock.

During 1970 Kaukonen and Casady started to concentrate on their work with Hot Tuna and Spencer Dryden was replaced by Joey Covington. Papa John Creach started performing with the group during their fall tour. At the end of that tour Marty Balin left the group. One album was released in 1971. In 1972 Covington was replaced by John Barbata and another album was released. The group performed for the last time in September 1972.

In 1989 Kantner, Balin, Slick, Kaukonen, and Casady briefly reunited as Jefferson Airplane for a tour and album.
