Reflecting a sense of humor that not all the Haight-Ashbury bands could share or even afford, The Worst of Jefferson Airplane remains one of the most amusing titles of a '60s rock album. The disc smartly collapses two big singles ("White Rabbit" and "Somebody to Love," of course) and other well-selected tracks into a chronological mix that moves from flat-out hard rock ("It's No Secret") to the solo acoustic showcase ("Embryonic Journey") and the gospel/blues blessing "Good Shepherd." --Rickey Wright

"This is the best offering of all of the band's early hits. They exploded on the music scene from San Francisco along with The Doors, Janice Joplin, The Greatful Dead and many others from the Haite Ashbury crowd. When they first started, Grace Slick was little more than "stage candy" doing back up vocals and looking good. Once the public heard her haunting voice, the world bought everything the band released.
This CD is arguably the "best of the best" that the Airplane or Starship ever gave to the public and is a must for any "flower child" to make room for, in their collection."

"This is not one to get if you live next door to a hospital or an old folks' home. Somehow, whenever I put on the album (yes, kiddies, in vinyl), somehow the volume on my stereo cranks itself up. The Worst of covers selections from all of the Airplane's albums before they became Jefferson Starship. It contains the clasics Somebody to Love and White Rabbit from the Summer of Love as well as the anthem - Volunteers. This was Psychadelia at its best. I can't really remember hearing these tunes for the first time. As they say, if you remember the 60s you weren't there.... But they sure still sound good today. Get this collection and expand your horizons!"
