    It's a '34 Buick Victoria owned by Kaukonen. Casady owned a '37 Cadillac.

    It's one of America's top tourist destinations. One day I will go there.

    I agree.

    For Jorma fans, this song is the one:

    Jorma has to be my favorite fingerpicker.

    I must admit that the backing vocals on "99 year blues" and "Let us get together right down here" are a bit strange, and yes, the studio environment might have limited these great musicians. I will get their live records and their harder rocking ones too.

    I catch Electric Tuna every tour, but I m not an acoustic band fan. I recently heard Jorma solo and it was magical. It seems when Jorma w Jack they re creating a place for bass where none is needed, but only for acoustic. Electric, Jack is the best and totally necessary.

    Love some Hot Tuna. I was fortunate to have grown up in the Bay Area during the Airplanes and HT. I've been workin' a long time on the Hot Tuna version of Rev. Gary Davis cover that Jorma made even better.

    You can count me as a fan of Burgers and Hot Tuna in general. Such great tracks on that album: True Religion, Highway Song, 99 Year Blues, Water Song, Ode to Billy Dean. Burgers and that first Live album are in constant rotation here.

    I have seen them a number of times in the past few years. Once we even had front row seats at a concert in Philadelphia. We were so close that we weren't getting much of the PA, just Jack's Allesandro amp and Jorma acoustic. Sounded almost as good as the show below. I went out to Fur Peace in Ohio when their Pho restaurant opened. Had lunch and got an up close and personal show. Absolutely amazing.
