White Rabbit by the Great Society, Matrix, 1966

This is one of those YouTube videos that shows still photos while playing the music. In this case we have the Grace Slick and Great Society doing an early prototype of White Rabbit. Almost a totally different song. 1966. The Matrix, tiny club in San Francisco. We know the story. In the early Fall of 1966, Jefferson Airplane vocalist Signe Anderson, pregnant, no longer wanted to tour with the band. They invited Grace Slick to come aboard and the rest was history. Both White Rabbit and Somebody to Love were Great Society songs Grace brought to the Airplane.
