One of the key tracks from Jefferson Airplane's 1967 album, After Bathing At Baxter's; their 3rd album. The record company was flush with the JA hits 'White Rabbit' and 'Somebody to Love' and gave JA carte blanche in the studio to do whatever they wanted to. They were never more sorry. What was a bust for the record company (no hit singles) was a boon for the rest of us. ABAB is one of JA most original works.
This song, Young Girl Sunday Blues is a great example of the rough-edged harmonies generated by three powerful singers: Marty Balin, Paul Kantner, and Grace Slick. It showcases all the musicians and rewards repeated and in-depth listening.
Co-written by Balin and Kantner.
