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.

I didn't order this CD from Amazon. I bought it at Jorma's Fur Peace Ranch last Saturday where we watched Jorma, Jack & Barry perform many of the songs off this album. I thought the songs performed live were pretty good, but this studio produced album is really impressive. I've listened to it several times now and I like it better each time.

I'm amazed at how great Jorma's voice is at 70! Jack still plays a great bass and Barry Mitterhoff is simply amazing. I don't see why it needs to be comapared with an album 40 years ago (I also bought that album 40 years ago and every other one since). It's just great to have a new Hot Tuna album to listen to. I highly recommend this new album.

If it were a painting, it would hang in the Louvre. A masterpiece still ringing in my ears.

I purchase the CD as MP3's do not do justice to anything worth keeping. I purposely avoided listening to the quick sample MP3 tracks available on amazon as I wanted no prejudgment. I actually dusted off my ADS 910's and Macintosh equipment to evaluate what a studio album from HOT TUNA would sound like after 20 years of live and DAT shows. OH MY! I closed my eyes and when the CD ended I found myself back where I started... But I had been a wonderful trip for about an hour.
If this don't make you move, your already dead.

I agree with alot of what has been said about the album...it is a good album, with quality material and great Rev. Gary Davis covers...I don't care for Teresa Williams (Larry Campbels wife, NOT Jormas wife!!!) but I think of it like having Donna in the GD circa early 70's, not a good thing, btu not bad enough to tank it!!! I liked it better on the second go round, and I felt there were some good rockers on there, but the band just don't rock like they used to...Jorma IS 70 now, so it is natural that he age gracefully and have a more thoughtful approach to his writing and playing...to the guy who said Jormas picking style isn't on display, I don't know what he has been listening to for the last 20 years...Jorma has transformed into a more technical picker and his skill is on display in this album...it does sound a lot like a Jorma solo album (I can't help but agree with that) as far as lyrics and pickin goes, but Jack stamped it with his unmistakable sound...it is a decent mix of their electric and acoustic approach these days, but I think (as they grow older) the relaxed contemplative songs seem a better fit...they still rock out the classic numbers in concert, but as far as new music, the rockers seem out of place somehow...all in all, it isn't what I expected, but it is a satisfying album in an era when quality music is on the decline...hopefully albums like this (and Robbie Robertson, etc.) help encourage younger folk to listen to the old masters and emulate them...the hit makers today are bastardizing the art of music, people like Jorma are doing a helluva job countering that mind-mush with quality music like that found on this album

technically speaking, I felt Jack was mixed just fine (use some EQ for desired effect) but the album was too clean and polished IMHO...

I loved Hot Tuna growing up. Saw them live over a dozen times. Purchased every release from the immortal Hot Tuna (Live) through Hop Korv. I still love the first four records though some of their later releases did not weather quite as well. I even suffered through Jorma's mercifully brief punk phase during one live show. Jack wisely left the stage and let Jorma go it alone on that occasion. It wasn't pretty. But then Hot Tuna has never been a commercial band. They make music they like when the spirit moves them. They experiment and take different directions whether you want them to or not. They have integrity, something that can be hard to find in this age of pop music idols who rely heavily on image, studio wizardry and marketing.

When I first heard "Steady As She Goes" I was underwhelmed. I am not sure what I was expecting but this wasn't it. I put the CD down for awhile and went back to it. The second time around I found myself nodding my head, smiling and tapping my foot. This is a different band from the Hot Tuna I remember and they have released a different record. Nonetheless all of the essential elements I remember are still there.

Jorma has evolved as a guitarist and a song writer. His brilliant, highly original finger picking style is still in evidence but it is more subtle and nuanced. His leads are tastier, less repetitive and integrated smartly into the mix. He sounds like a cagey, wizened studio cat with plenty of tricks up his sleeve and nothing to prove. His lyrics are sadder and more worldly wise but still carry their trademark sense of humor. Jack's bass playing is not as thunderous as it was in days of yore but he is still the glue that holds it all together.

Hot Tuna still rocks albeit in a more laid back way.
