Editors’ Notes

As the first Hot Tuna studio album since 1990’s Pair a Dice Found, which itself was the first studio album since the ‘70s, Steady As She Goes is a truly long-awaited event. Jorma Kaukonen and Jack Casady are joined by drummer Skoota Warner, mandolin player Barry Mitterhoff, vocalist Teresa Williams and producer/ multi-instrumentalist Larry Campbell. This solid, no-nonsense lineup went into Levon Helm’s studio in Woodstock, NY — and much like Kaukonen’s spirited solo album, River of Time, which features many from this line-up — they turned in performances that are warm to the touch. “Angel of Darkness” is pitch-perfect in its economy and electric sizzle. “Second Chances” is a touching ballad. “Mama Let Me Lay It On You,” the original version of what Eric Von Schmidt and Bob Dylan found as “Baby, Let Me Follow You Down,” plays as a perfect example of what a band is supposed to do. “If This Is Love” is more perfect ensemble playing. “Things That Might Have Been” shows Jorma in singer-songwriter mode, playing a tune personal and deep. You can’t ask for better.

Customer Reviews

Karma is a great thing. As I get old I get young again.

Hearing this takes me back to my high school basement room and Jefferson Airplane / Starship & the first HT album. Now it's on my laptack. I am seeing HT tomorrow night at the Birchmere for my birthday. I can't wait. I am so glad to hear this music before I go. Thanks everyone. I like the band, the sounds, the voice and the good analog clean production. I am an old school musician, engineer and producer. I used API and Neve boards with Stephens, 3M and Studer 24 tracks. Gold bless the bands who sit down and play together. Thank you. Amen! It makes me feel like going Amen!
