Tough choice but I went with the Jefferson Airplane.

Re: Jefferson Airplane vs. Steppenwolf!

No question, it is Steppenwolf. I had a cassette of the best of the Jefferson Airplane--2400 FULTON STREET, I think was the name of it--and I could barely get through it. The LIVE STEPPENWOLF album was one of my first rock records, and I recall it with fondness.

Exclamation Re: Jefferson Airplane vs. Steppenwolf!

This one is quite tough for me since I like both bands. Ranking my favourite songs by the two in order of preference I get this:

1. White Rabbit - Jefferson Airplane
2. Somebody to Love - Jefferson Airplane
3. Magic Carpet Ride - Steppenwolf
4. Born to Be Wild - Steppenwolf
5. Lather - Jefferson Airplane
6. Sookie Sookie - Steppenwolf
7. It's No Secret - Jefferson Airplane
8. Monster - Steppenwolf
9. For Ladies Only - Steppenwolf
10. Volunteers - Jefferson Airplane

Jefferson Airplane therefore gets my vote.

The audio quality of both 2400 Fulton Street and the previous greatest hits album Worst of Jefferson Airplane are very bad. I have an LP of the latter and the fidelity is absolutely lousy. I may therefore have to shell out for one of the more recent remastered CDs.

It wasn't the sound quality, but rather the SONG quality, that I didn't like. I was playing it in my car, which may have been part of the reason I wasn't too impressed.

Stepponwolf for me. They have albums that rock fairly well that I dont skip any tunes. I cant say that about Jefferson Airplane.
