CD Reviews

Weak Tuna
Aaron Gangross | Here and There | 01/28/2002
(2 out of 5 stars)

"This is a rather poor release, though it has its moments (the searing John's Other, for example). The sound quality is good and there is some histoy here, as it was recorded at the closing of the Fillmore West. Actually, that's the strongest selling point. Otherwise, the set list is almost the same as the "First Pull Up..." CD and it was recorded duirng the same year (1971) with the same line-up. All this leaves you wondering why it was released. One listen will cause the same reaction. Pass on it or save it until last."
This is RARE material finally issued!

"I always loved Jorma and Jack (the vicious rythm section that makes up Hot Tuna) and these are the recordings that explain why. This disc represents an era of Tuna that was not only historic, but essential in the roots of good ole music. There are country elements, rock elements and a free-form element that can only be borrowed from jazz exploration. You will dance, shake and stomp your feet along to monstrous rhythm section of this awesome band. Tuna was unique and the guitar pickings of Jorma are unlike any other guitar player out there. There is not a bad song on this lovely disc!"
Okay. Not the best ever.

"Hot Tuna has to be one of a handful of bands and musicians that can actually say that their music is...original. Not their music is not the greatest, but you can't say that they really sound like every other band. "Uncle Sam Blues", "John's Other", and "Candyman" are the best songs on the album. "I know you Rider" is the worst, but not that bad. If you want something original and not like any thing else pick up this cd. But I would recommend Hot Tuna's best album 'America's Choice'."
