After the release of solo projects, the Airplane reconvened for their sixth studio album. The initial sessions in 1970 were aborted and Marty Balin made the decision to leave the group. The album sessions began anew in early 1971 after Grace Slick had given birth to her first child.

The group had replaced Spencer Dryden on drums with Joey Covington and was augmented by Papa John Creach on violin on several tracks. Both musicians had worked with Jorma Kaukonen and Jack Casady in Hot Tuna during the Airplane’s hiatus. The Bark album opens with another Paul Kantner anthem, “When the Earth Moves Again” and continues on with stellar contributions from Jorma Kaukonen, Grace Slick and Joey Covington.

This expanded edition of Bark features an extended jam on Jorma’s “Feel So Good” as a bonus track.
