Paul Kantner + Grace Slick, ‘Sunfighter’ – Cute Babies on Album Covers
Taking a break from the band that made them psychedelic rock stars, Jefferson Airplane's Paul Kantner and Grace Slick released and produced 'Sunfighter' in 1971, and symbolized this new beginning by putting a newborn baby on their album cover.
The record -- featuring the used-to-be couple's daughter (China) on the cover -- is an environmentally-influenced one, recorded as a celebration of her birth.
The album's songs deal with a variety of different subjects. 'China' is -- obviously -- about their daughter, 'Silver Spoon' concerns cannibalism, and 'Sunfighter' is a tribute to their friend Marty Balin, who helped form Jefferson Airplane.
