Hot Tuna Steady As She Goes
I don't know what record the others are listening to, but this is a historic Hot Tuna record. I'm not sure how anyone can even compare this to previous Tuna records since they are separated by 20 years. You realize this is the first studio Tuna in 20 years, right?
It rocks. I listened to the Robbie Robertson record (4 stars) and this one back to back and the RR record could be classified as superior easy listening and doesn't rock nearly as much as Steady. And for the guy who can't hear Jack in the mix...all I can say is get a better stereo.
Produced and exquisitely enhanced by uber-musician Larry Campbell at Levon Helm's studio at his ranch. Wow, to be a fly on that wall!
There are covers of the Rev. Gary Davis and originals by Jorma, Jack and Larry. I'm tremendously impressed by this record. Great stories and great tunes done by some of the best musicians on the planet. It's the best new record I've heard since Farm and I listen a lot.
