"J.P.P. McStep B. Blues" as written by and Alexander Lee Skip Spence....
Got a feelin' comin' from inside
A love for you my friends that I can't hide
And on these words that come I hope you ride
And I hope that my feelin' and meanings come through

One short moment and I knew you
Like lookin' in a mirror I looked through you
My night time rider has flown to you
And I hope you can see me like I've been seein' you

This is a song of your hand
Written so you would understand
A special feelin' taken by my stand
And I know you're goin' to love me like I've been loving you

And because you had a hand to lend
And you know the sands of time are just made of sand
Even though you might be in another land
I know I am with you forever my friend

    General CommentBeautiful song, written by Skip Spence but recorded after he was out of the band, late autumn 1966, during the 'Surrealistic Pillow' sessions. Sums up Haight Ashbury, 1966, before the 'summer of love' hype of '67 destroyed the scene. Love, peace, good music, and good vibes with no snark or irony or cynicism connected with those terms. Not included for some reason in original release of 'Surrealistic Pillow' and not released until the later JA anthology 'Early Flight' in '73 or '74, by which time it was already a nostalgia piece. EF version has Grace Slick's vocals more prominent, equal with Marty Balin's. CD issues of 'Surrealistic Pillow' starting in the '80s or '90s have a different mix with Grace's vocal pushed to the background rather than of equal tone and volume with Marty's.
