iTunes Review

Hot Tuna fry up some tasty folk tunes and salt them with acid-rock accents on Burgers (1972), the group’s third album. With ace violinist Papa John Creach spurring them on, Jefferson Airplane guitarist Jorma Kaukonen and bassist Jack Casady come closer to achieving their vision of fusing old-time string-band music with Bay Area-style psychedelic rock. A spirit of freewheeling fun pervades most of these tracks, along with a certain crunchy-granola hippie vibe. The casual virtuosity of Kaukonen’s acoustic fingerpicking makes such songs as “99 Year Blues,” “Keep On Truckin’,” and the sparkling instrumental “Water Song” a delight to hear. Casady’s deft counter-melodies and fat (yet supple) tone add definition to ensemble showcases like “True Religion” and “Highway Song.” Throughout, Creach unleashes some of the hottest fiddle licks this side of Stephane Grappelli, wailing or murmuring as the track demands. Burgers is worth hearing in its entirety for its nonchalant gusto and sure grasp of American musical traditions.

This is a classic!

I remember sitting on the floor in somone's house about 40 years ago in a thick haze of smoke. There was this most amazing music playing - and one of my friends had the album cover and we sat and looked at it for hours while we took turns getting up to flip the record over - again and again and again... Jorma has been one of my favorite musician's ever since.

perfect for the times

This is the essence of the 60's and 70's freedom child music. This breaks it right down to the core, this is the album that everybody should own if they have any interest in the perfect music collection. It's one of the very few albums I listen to anymore from back in the day. It's in a class of it's own; original, communal, those riffs that you'll never get out of your head, patient yet flowing, it's awesome.

I'd Like Mine Well Done Please...

Begun as an acoustic spinoff of the Jefferson Airplane, Hot Tuna eventually became the full-time focus of founding members Jack Casady and Jorma Kaukonen, emerging as a popular touring act of the 1970s. The two were lifelong friends, growing up together in Washington, D.C., and playing in the group the Triumphs. After high school, guitarist Kaukonen and his government-service parents relocated to the Philippines, but he returned to the U.S. in time for the advent of psychedelia, landing in San Francisco...
