Born to Be Burned is a collection of mostly-unreleased studio recordings. Their seminal band together for only a year, Darby, Jerry and Grace Slick formed the core of this SF ballroom legend, whose influence--like the widening sway of the Velvet Underground--seems larger today than ever. The garage origins of Darby's classic, 'Someone to Love', turned into hit by Jefferson Airplane, never sounded better.
"The only recordings released during the Great Society's 1965-1966 lifetime were the two sides of its Northbeach Records single, "Free Advice"/"Someone [Somebody] to Love." This album reissues those two sides along with the rest of the group's previously unreleased recording sessions of the fall of 1965. There are two more takes of the Indian-influenced "Free Advice," the group-written "Father Bruce," about comedian Lenny Bruce, and a set of pop-oriented songs written by singer David Miner. The tracks are rough, little more than demos rather than finished recordings. (No wonder it took 30 years for someone to release them.) But they provide tremendous insight into one of the '60s San Francisco scene's forgotten bands." (AMG Review)
