Good compilation of tracks

"I will admit I know very little about Jefferson Airplane
in general, so I bought this as an brief introduction to
Somebody To Love and White Rabbit are probably the most
familiar songs to people who aren't fans of the band. The
entire compilation runs a little over 20 minutes, so it is
fairly short in duration.
The tracks are great though, and reminscent of the 1960s
pop culture back then. Embryonic Journey is a nice
instrumental on acoustic guitar that fills a bridge between
the psychedelic White Rabbit and Crown of Creation.
Volunteers is a song with a message and a bit patriotic,
and it's about helping your fellow person. It's symbolic
of the times it was written in, and a nice ending to the
compilation. Of course, since this album contains only
8 tracks, you would probably want to get a more
comprehensive album or albums if you like what's found
here. All the songs listed here are quite good, but I
don't know if it warrants a five star rating as
outstanding or indispensable, because for a compilation
album, the number of tracks and total time of the album
is pretty low, so I had to deduct a star for that reason."
