Hot Tuna - 'Steady As She Goes'


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

Definitely, one of the best Hot Tuna albums you can buy.
This album is a recording of three hippie musicians getting together to play some great blues tinged acoustic music (when that was a unique fresh thing to do).
Samuel B. King
The new CD version here with the extra tracks is fantastic and just an extension of an already great live set.

When I was just a young High School student (and future statements will give away my age), I got this album (minus bonus tracks) on Q8 quadrophonic 8 track (the album really didn't show off the surrounded capabilities that other Q8's were showing at the time , but the music was real good). When I was sick one day, I just laid in my bed, and let this Hot Tuna album play over, and over, and over again. This was back then a 5 star album. Now, I find (30 years later) a copy with a more complete show. The extra songs are excellent (2 of them worth the price of the album alone). The extra songs "Candy Man", and "Come Back Baby" are masterpieces. The entire album is not only excellent to me, but to other people that I play it for. I've had comments ranging from "I had the album before, but never heard the complete show", to "this album is absolutely awesome" (from a younger co-worker). If you're not use to the finger picking style of Jorma, it'll take a few listens to get use to (it's all acoustic with no drums - you really don't need them) but you'll soon realize that this is one of the best albums in your collection. If you're a lone time fan of Hot Tuna (or Leo kottke, or Mason Williams, or Jerry Garcia, or even Chet Atkins) you'll find this album very easy to get in to. If you had the old copy of the album, you'll find this new version (and CD notes) a very pleasant surprise. Just don't break any glasses during Uncle Sam Blues (It disturbs the neighbors).

Addendum: (as of 4/30/09) Jorma's come out with some great solo stuff (with and without Jack), and Jack has (finally) come out with a great solo album (with and without Jorma). They both have music lesson discs on Homespun videos (you can get the best price right here at amazon).

A bunch of simple old tunes on just acoustic guitar and bass, yet it's magical. It was recorded live at a small venue and the sense of presence is such that I still look round when a glass drops and breaks in the middle of one track.
Jorma's vocals are a bit thin but work fine and his finger-style country blues lets the music come through without overdosing on aren't-I-smart technique. In fact you pretty soon feel like playing along - several of these tracks came to form the basis of my own modest repertoire for high days and holidays.
But the true delight of the set is the mighty bass playing of Jack Casady. Without being Stanley Clark flashy he provides rhythmic drive and swing, thunderous foundations and nimble melodic counterpoint. The price of the album would be worth it for the bass alone.
To his eternal credit, Jorma has been a great champion of music in general and the acoustic guitar in particular, but couldn't really be counted as sublime on the instrument. Whereas on this and numerous other outings, his more retiring partner Jack Casady makes you wonder: could anybody else ever play bass as great as this? Fellow music lovers, I'd be delighted to hear of candidates.

Hot Tuna is really four or five different bands comprised of a variety of personnel over the years including Pete Sears, Harvey Sorgen, Sammy Piazza, Michael Falzarano, Papa John Creach and even Marty Balin for a brief moment. But the core elements behind Hot Tuna are Jorma Kaukonen on guitar and Jack Casady on bass, both members of The Jefferson Airplane. I analogize Hot Tuna with the old story of the blind men describing an elephant. Each has entirely conflicting descriptions depending upon which area of the elephant they examine. Describing Hot Tuna (Jorma, et al) produces the same effect depending on which Hot Tuna you listen to. One person will tell you that Hot Tuna is a traditional, acoustic blues band. Another will describe a highly electrified, acid rock band. Yet another may describe an old timey, coffee house folky/bluegrass band. I would categorize this recording under the bluesy Hot Tuna, although there are folky elements as well. This was the first Tuna album I purchased (back in the vinyl days). I was in the eighth grade when I first heard Tuna on the radio. The song was "Watch the North Wind Rise" which is a rock ballad of sorts and I fell in love. Not knowing the title of the song, let alone album, I began purchasing albums searching for that song. This was my first purchase and to my surprise was not the Hot Tuna I heard on the radio. I think "Burgers" was my next purchase, then "Final Vinyl", then "Hopkorv" where I finally found "North Wind". By this time, however, I've become completely envoloped by acoustic Tuna. This is probably my favorite acoustic live recording. Still young, fresh and clean. The "Sweetwater" series would be next if not equal, which includes appearances by Bobby Weir and Maria Muldaur.Read more ›

My introduction to some of these old folk blues classics was from hearing Hot Tuna when I was back in high school. My musical tastes have changed over the years but I still find myself humming Death Don't Have No Mercy and Hesitation Blues 30 years later. Jorma and Jack did an amazing job of bringing these old chestnuts to life and the recordings hold up really well over time. One of the great records from that era still sounds great today.
