Surrealistic Pillow

Surrealistic Pillow is an album by American psychedelic band Jefferson Airplane, released in February of 1967 (see 1967 in music). The album includes Jefferson Airplane's two best-known songs, "White Rabbit" and "Somebody to Love". Surrealistic Pillow peaked at #3 on Billboard's Pop Albums chart, while "Somebody to Love" and "White Rabbit" peaked at #5 and #8, respectively, on the Pop Singles chart.

Jefferson Airplane's fusion of folk-rock and psychedelia was original at the time, though it spawned many imitators within a few years. Surrealistic Pillow was perhaps the first blockbuster psychedelic album, and helped define the scene that the late 1960s became known for.
