From their days playing together as teenagers to their current acoustic and electric blues, probably no one has more consistently led American music for the last 50 years than Jorma Kaukonen and Jack Casady, the founders and continuing core members of the iconic blues-roots band Hot Tuna.

Now members of the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, the pair began playing together while growing up in ... Read more in Amazon's Hot Tuna Store

4.0 out of 5 stars Jorma and Jack on fine form 18 Sep 2011
Format:MP3 Download|Verified Purchase
I was surprised that, until now, no aficionado of this excellent band had offered a review of this little gem of an album. OK, it's not "perfect"--what is?--but for a live album this is as good as it gets for Jorma and Jack in the late 1990s. The downloadable version is a 2004 remastering of the original 1997 recording.

My general experience of Blues albums is that they tend to offer their essential flavour when recorded live. Hot Tuna live are a different life form to the studio version--the band is well and truly alive on this trip to Japan--perhaps it was the sushi. The album stacks up well against earlier HT live albums and maintains the standard J & J have always set for their live gigs.

There's an unplugged ambience to the album--even down to an almost Dylanesque voicing and growling timbre in places (don't let that put you off). However, the guitar work is both mellow yet simultaneously formidable--and there are also some nice piano and harmonica riffs to enrich the ambience. Jorma must surely be one of the most under-rated guitarists of the rock generation--especially on acoustic.

If you can get over some minor quibbles then this album must surely find a place in any discerning HT fan's library.

Quibble 1: "Hesitation Blues" on the original version isn't here--a pity but I guess Eagle's engineers and producers had their reasons.

Quibble 2: Perhaps there is an element of "smoothness" of production that some HT fans might rail against--it sounds as if some of "rough" moments have been edited out. However, it's not Lanois-type smoothness or over-production and the album's essential core is not corrupted.

This is a hidden treasure.

5.0 out of 5 stars Tuna On The Stove 29 Sep 2005
By Philip S. Wolf - Published on
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This one was first released as " Hot Tuna Live at Stove's " a few years back. This is the expanded ( 4 extra tracks ) and remastered edition and it's one of the very best CD's of live Tuna available right now.

It was recorded in Yokahama, Japan at a tiny club called Stove's that on a normal night has a about 2 dozen people soaking up it's funky hippie chic ( Back in the nineties when I was stationed in Japan, I stopped by this cool watering hole more than once ). It must have blown more than a few minds to see Tuna in this this little place !

Tuna was on tour in Japan in January of 1997 and when they got to Stove's the band found the venue was packed and they had to climb throught a window behind the stage to get their gear and bodies into this place. With no room to set up the amps & drums Electric Hot Tuna quickly became Acoustic Hot Tuna for this very special night.

Things begin here with " Walkin' Blues" and the band is having a good time with Pete Sears playing funky piano lines like nobody's business. Second up " Parchman Farm " is a welcome addition to this CD and it's just as good as the one on the " Live at Sweetwater " release, "Been so Long " is a rarity in the acoustic format and the band sounds very relaxed on this one ( very cool ).

You get very good readings of " Uncle Sam " and " Vampire Woman " then comes the highlight of the night as the band erupts into " Follow The Drinking Gourd " this rarity is done real jazzy and Jorma gives it his all... Fantastic playing here, this one is really special. "Keep Your Lamps Trimmed & Burning " is next and sounds so different as an acoustic piece without the fuzzy electric guitars it's like a brand new number...great and really different from earlier versions.

This version of " Let Us Get Together " gets a "Bayou" treatment with wonderful Accordian from Pete, and the J. Airplane song " 3rd Week In The Chelsea " is a stunner, best version that I have heard of this classic by far. To finish things up you get "San Francisco Bay Blues", "Folsom Prison" (yep, THAT Folsom Prison!) and "Mann's Fate" the great instrumental that has closed many a Tuna and Jorma Concert.

If you like Tuna, you should own this one and if you are new to the band this would be a fine place to start. Sound quality is 5 Star and the band's performance is as Spinal Tap would say an 11.

This a GREAT Disk, and at 74 minutes a great value.. BUY IT !!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Acoustic TUNA 21 May 2006
By Douglas Bowman - Published on
Format:Audio CD
Culled from a 1997 concert, the acoustic format is intimate yet versatile, featuring Jorma in good voice and the band providing tight backing and some musically satisfying highlights. Typical of Hot Tuna, there is an eclectic mix of traditional blues, Tuna originals, and Rev. Gary Davis covers. The inclusion of the Jefferson Airplane song "Third Week in the Chelsea", the rarely recorded "Been So Long", and the instrumental "Mann's Fate" (which appeared on Hot Tuna's first recording) are pleasant surprises and make this an essential example of later period Hot Tuna.

This is an incredible album. It is real bluesy with a definite vibe to it. I have all of the Hot Tuna recordings and this is posibly the best. They seem to get better with age.

5.0 out of 5 stars Strong, Set, Energetic Show 9 Jan 2011
By Misterian - Published on
Format:Audio CD
I really enjoy this CD. The guys are on! 15 great songs, some hard to find elsewhere. There isn't a weak moment anywhere in this set. You get the gorgeous Airplane ballad "3rd Week at the Chelsea," Hot Tuna classics like "Vampire Woman" and Mann's Fate," and great blues staples like "Walkin' Blues," "Parchman Farm," "San Francisco Bay Blues," and so many more. There are tons of great vehicles for Jorma's masterful picking and shredding. This is one of the best live recordings of this Hot Tuna Electric era. Definitely a good purchase!
