Digitally remastered edition of the legendary 1973 album by Jefferson Airplane members Paul Kantner, Grace Slick and David Freiberg. The album followed on from Kantner and Slick's experiments on the albums Blows Against the Empire (1970) and Sunfighter (1971) and was recorded at Wally Heider's Studio in San Francisco at the close of 1972, just as Jefferson Airplane were winding down as a unit. As with Kantner's and Slick's previous ventures outside the Airplane, Baron von Tollbooth... pushed boundaries and eschewed any commercial considerations. The resulting album was experimental and progressive in nature but was also a fine work. The album sessions featured contributions from fellow Jefferson Airplane members John Barbata, Jack Casady, Jorma Kaukonen and Papa John Creach along with some of the finest alumni from the West Coast rock music scene of the late 60s / early 70s such as Jerry Garcia and Mickey Hart, David Crosby, Chris Ethridge, and Craig Chaquico (later to join Jefferson Starship). The album remains one of the great unsung albums to emerge from the Jefferson Airplane family tree. This Esoteric Recordings edition has been newly remastered and restores the original album artwork in a digipack.
