180 Gram Vinyl! Former Members of Jefferson Airplane! Features "Water Song", "Sea Child" & "True Religion"!

The exploration of psychedelic depths did not appear to suffice for the founders of Jefferson Airplane - Jorma Kaukonen and Jack Casady - when searching for their musical salvation. So why not amalgamate their hippy-like simple lifestyle and folksy music with the formation of a second band called Hot Tuna, emotional yet not so synthetically hotted-up?

Even in the very first number, "True Religion", whose airy, bubbling folksy finger-picking soars up into powerful waves of rock, the message of this first studio album comes over loud and clear. Growling bass melodies and the representation of a life on the road ("Keep On Truckin'") conjure up a down-to-earth country feeling, with an off-key fiddle tune ("Let Us Get Together Right Down Here") accentuating the rough yet cordial get-together. The purely instrumental "Water Song" is a stroke of genius - this humming, buzzing guitar mix - doesn't only demonstrate the players' instrumental dexterity but also their keen sense of melody and ear for sound coloring. No matter whether gruff Hillbilly, cool blues rocker, or square and nostalgic former hippy - they'll all love this album. Just think: for whom else does Hot Tuna still go on tour...?

Recording: 1972 by 'The Unknown Engineer' at Wally Heider Studios, San Francisco Production: Fisohobay Production
