~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 album opens with another Paul Kantner anthem, When the Earth Moves Again and continues on with stellar contributions from Jorma, Grace Slick and Joey Covington.
This expanded edition features selections from the 1971 album sessions and an extended jam on Jorma s, Feel So Good. The artwork features a recreation of the stunning original album graphics. The first release on the Airplane s then new Grunt label was one of their best selling albums and nearly cracked the Top 10 upon initial release. The new mastering, by Vic Anesini, was derived directly from the original master reels and proudly sits alongside Iconoclassic s expanded Thirty Seconds Over Winterland release.
