This outer cover was usually discarded after purchase and is hard to find today.

About this copy: This copy of Bark is a 1971 pressing on the Grunt label.

As the album is still sealed, the record is presumably new and unplayed.

There is a hype sticker on the back of the wrap listing band members and song titles.

A beautiful copy of an album that is rarely found complete.

Background: Released in 1971, Bark was the sixth studio album by the Jefferson Airplane.

The album reached #11 on the U.S. album charts.

Allmusic.com gave Bark a 3 star review:

Bark, Jefferson Airplane’s seventh album, was an album of firsts: it was the first Airplane album in almost two years, the first made after the arrival of violinist Papa John Creach and the departure of band founder Marty Balin, and the first to be released on the group’s own Grunt Records label. It was also the first Airplane album made after the onset of that familiar rock group disease, solo career-itis. Rhythm guitarist Paul Kantner had released his Blows Against the Empire, and Hot Tuna, the band formed by lead guitarist Jorma Kaukonen and bassist Jack Casady, had released two albums since the last Airplane group release, Volunteers. Bark, perhaps as a result, was not so much a group record as a bunch of songs made by alternating solo artists with backup by the other group members. …All of which is to say that there were some excellent songs on Bark (as well as some mediocre ones), even if the whole added up to less than the sum of the parts.
