Double Dose was the eighth album by the American blues rock band Hot Tuna, and their third live album. The album was originally released as a double-LP as Grunt CYL2-2545. After their 1977 tour, Jorma Kaukonen moved on to a solo career and Jack Casady joined the new wave band SVT. Hot Tuna would not perform together again until 1983. The album had its highest peak at #92 on the Billboard charts.
Hoppkorv was the seventh album by the American blues rock band Hot Tuna, and their last studio album recorded for Grunt Records, as Grunt BFL1-1920. Unlike previous albums, Hot Tuna relied entirely on an outside producer for this effort, Harry Maslin. In addition to four new original songs by Jorma Kaukonen and one by Nick Buck, the album includes covers of Buddy Holly's "It's So Easy", Muddy Waters' "I Can't Be Satisfied", and Chuck Berry's "Talkin' 'Bout You." The album had its highest peak at #116 on the Billboard charts.
Yellow Fever was the sixth album by the American blues rock band Hot Tuna, recorded and released in 1975 as Grunt BFL1-1238. The album was also released in Quadraphonic as Grunt BFD1-1238. Compared to their first two wholly blues-based albums (recorded live) and the following two studio albums, “Yellow Fever” (and it’s immediate predecessor “America’s Choice,” both released in 1975) holds moments that surpass everything they ever recorded as Hot Tuna. The album rose to #97 on the Billboard charts.
America's Choice was the fifth album by the American blues rock band Hot Tuna, recorded in 1974, and released in 1975 as Grunt BFL1-0820. The album was also released in Quadraphonic as Grunt BFD1-0820. The first of the "Rampage" trilogy albums (the others being Yellow Fever and Hoppkorv) recorded by the now power trio, it marked a major shift in musical direction by the group. With new drummer Bob Steeler, Tuna now performed in a predominantly hard rock style rather than their previous more acoustic flavored manner.
Hot Tuna is the self-titled debut album by the blues-rock band Hot Tuna, released in 1970 as RCA Victor LSP-4353. It was recorded live at the New Orleans House in Berkeley, California in September 1969. It peaked at #30 on the Billboard 200 album chart. 2008 Japanese exclusive limited edition 15-track 24-Bit digitally remastered CD album, the debut longplayer from Jefferson Airplane's Jack Casady and Jorma Kaukonen, originally released in 1970, includes 5 bonus recordings, superbly presented in mini LP-style pasted card sleeve with Japanese/English lyric booklet + obi strip.
For years now I have been performing and recording with a number of different blues artists. During that time I began to get ideas of my own as to what I thought would make for a good modern blues band. As I produced more and more projects for Blue Rock'It and other labels, these ideas became clearer. Finaly, I decided that it was time to call together Ronnie,Mark, and Garth to help me develop my Ford Blues Band concept.With no rehearsals, in just a little over twenty hours, we had completed this project……
Hot Tuna is back with Steady As She Goes, their first all-new studio album in 20 years! Founding members Jorma Kaukonen and Jack Casady masterfully blend Americana rock with blues and acoustic folk on a record that hits their full spectrum of styles from electric and acoustic Hot Tuna to their days in Jefferson Airplane. Reaching a zenith of their historic career, Steady As She Goes is an absolute masterpiece.
55: 08 Minutes of this powerful live concert are preserved on CrossCut records.With seven pieces the Ford blues band dukumentierte West Coast Blues style, which dynamically and solo resourceful - offers up to delicate sounds - the elegant version of urban blues. But also the faster pieces go to fully rested often completely from the heart and the audience.A hearty "All right" - and goes off the Blues post. ´S was on 7. June 1992 in the rammed full power station tent on the Breminale - and so one can it on the new CD the Ford blues band listen.With the tracks themselves full of busy, unexpected chord changes, heavily accented drumming, overblown harmonics and jazzy, nasal sounding vocals, this could only be a Ford Blues Band record. It won´t be to everyone´s taste, but I must admit to finding them to be a relieable and highly distinctive outfit.
