Balin was one of the founders of the Airplane - but when Grace Slick joined the band (she was not an original member), she wound up becoming more of the focal point - especially when Paul Kantner took over as the primary songwriter.

Still, one of the best things about the Airplane, and the early version of Starship, was the interplay between Slick and Balin's voices. I had "Red Octopus" on vinyl - but I don't have a CD copy. Might have to go scrounge one up.
