Jefferson Airplane - If You Feel Like China Breaking / Triad
Watermarked image. Germany - RCA Victor - Ireland - RCA Victor - RCA Victor. Deepinder Cheema 21st Jul Just seen an India pressing with what seems a unique pic bag. Looks like burnt paper motif. This perhaps gives credence to the fact that 'Triad' became a victim of the infighting between The Byrds and David Crosby during the recording of 'The Notorious Byrd Brothers' album. Much as Asi Mi Gusta - Los Chalchaleros - Añoranzas like "Triad" more for the vibe than the lyric, it was a wise decision not to make it an A side though it probably would had gotten more publicity had it been so.
I would had picked "Crown of Creation" myself for the UK single off that album The Byrds take we do have of "Triad" is for me the best version actually Felonious 26th Sep If you feel like China breaking I think is more representative of the Airplane Sound. If you check the cover of Notorious Byrd brothers there's a horse's head in the window where Crosby should be.
McGuinn probably couldn't find an ass. With due respect to original uploader DigThatCat I've added a slightly clearer image of the A side plus the B side image. It was originally intended for The Byrds 'Notorious Jefferson Airplane - If You Feel Like China Breaking / Triad Brothers' album but depending on which side of The Byrds camp you wish to believe it was either left off the album because of it's subject matter or because the band couldn't quite nail a decent take.
There had been bad blood between The Byrds and Crosby during the making of the album which culminated in David Crosby being fired.
