I'm no critic but I love this album so much I want everyone to hear it, so here goes. I had this album on vinyl back in the '70s and thought it was great then. Jorma Kaukonen's brilliant finger picking guitar style is to die for if you play (but just be amazed if you don't). The album combines his distinctive smooth velvety voice with just the right amount of humour and angst in the lyrics. This new version also includes some extra tracks I havent heard before and is the only album in print I know of that includes some tracks by Tom Hobson with his own superb voice fitting loads of words somehow around the guitar. I was so happy to see this back in print and after not hearing it for years (I spilled paint on my LP and it wouldnt play again!) found it hadn't dated and was still fresh. relevant, and a sheer delight to listen to. I would recommend this to anyone who likes blues.

This has been on my wishlist for 20 years, which means the reality might have disappointed after so much anticipation. It doesn't.

Don't get me wrong: this isn't a "perfect" album. But it's still a five-star job. Kaukonen's steely acoustic guitar is at its absolute best on Quah. From the moving, personal Genesis through the blues of Another Man Done Gone to the near-perfect melody of Hamar Promenade, Kaukonen delivers on the musical manifesto he laid down in Embryonic Journey on Jefferson Airplane's 1967 classic Surrealistic Pillow.

Not every track is a killer, and Side Two of the original vinyl album would have suffered more wear and tear from repeated playing. When the album was first delivered to the record company it was a double-hander with Tom Hobson. The record company delivered it right back, saying they hated Hobson's songs. Only one, Sweet Hawaiian Sunshine, survived on the original album and it's a stand-out stinker. Sometimes, the suits know best.

The bonus tracks are fine. Lord Have Mercy is billed in the sleeve notes as one of the "lost" Kaukonen acoustics but it won't be unfamiliar to his fans: it's an instrumental version of Letter To The North Star, which appeared on Hot Tuna's next album The Phosphorescent Rat. None of them are bad but there aren't any gems that should have been on the original release.

For anyone who has enjoyed Jorma's acoustic work, Quah is genuinely an essential purchase.

After the ongoing Pyschedelic soap opera of the Jefferson Airplane crash landed in the early seventies, guitarist Jorma Kaukonen and bassist Jack Casady had a ready-made, up 'n' running side project, Hot Tuna, in which to showcase their talents. Jorma Kaukonen, however, had been in the process of recording 'Quah', his first solo album, back in 1972, with Casady in the production chair - it didn't get released until 1974, however. The Paul Kantner / Grace Slick creative fulcrum at the heart of the Airplane didn't leave much room for Jorma (or Jack) to roam, but, even so, 'Quah' went some way to prove what wonderful music lay hidden within him. Originally conceived as a kind of double-header album with the obscure singer-songwriter Tom Hobson, the record label nixed the idea, and so Hobson ended up with only a couple of tracks. Jorma's really in his element; wistful, thoughtful, occasionally delving into the catalogue of Blues greats, such as Rev Gary Davis and Blind Blake, who inspired him to pick up the guitar in the first place. There's some fine orchestral arrangements that enhance the songs without getting in the way of Jorma's music. There's plenty of his nimble acoustic guitar work; also of note is his warm, gritty vocals, too - 'Quah' is a constantly-rewarding listen that will appeal to fans of quality singer-songwriters, and the more open-minded fans of the Airplane; there's none of the sometimes daft posturing of the Airplane. Good stuff, highly recommended.

I hated that I loved this album, once. Jorma was the the man from one of The Bands (Jefferson Airplane) of THE AGE, & here he was just plunking on a geetar and singing rather than screaming guitar runs plus feedback. Quality will out eventually, as any struggling football manager says in interview: now as a B-old-F I know a lot of Jorma's electric playing (in common with many others of that time) was repetitive and tiresome. Within the genre constraints of "Quah" he was superlative enough to remain utterly listenable to, many million scarificed brain cells later. Not the perfect album - a weak track, for me (I don't have the updated album with added tracks) but moving, powerful, beautiful and able to bear the weight of constant re-hearing.
