Burgers: Hot Tuna

One of my Viewers on my Youtube channel made this comment:  Hey Curtis.. Hot Tuna is two guys from the original Jefferson Airplane - there is a bit of jazz thrown in to the rock, and they have amazing chops. It is a bit jamband, which I don't care for, but there is no denying their ability. (by the way) I grew up with (Bruce Hornsby's) "The Way It Is", would just listen to it non-stop; a very underrated album to me - it is a stunner of a debut. "   But is more about today's band and record:  Hot Tuna is an American blues-rock band formed by bassist Jack Casady and guitarist Jorma Kaukonen as a spin-off of Jefferson Airplane. It plays acoustic and electric versions of original and traditional blues songs.  Burgers is the third album by Hot Tuna, the Folk rock off-shoot of Jefferson Airplane members Jorma KaukonenJack Casady, and Papa John Creach. It was the band's first studio album, the previous two being live recordings. "Water Song" and "Sunny Day Strut" are instrumentals composed for this album. In 1996, RCA released the CD box set Hot Tuna in a Can which included a remastered version of this album, along with remasters of the albums Hot TunaFirst Pull Up, Then Pull DownAmerica's Choice and Hoppkorv. This record - along with so many other great records - was  Recorded at Wally Heider Studios, in San Francisco.
