  2. I know it’s a stretch, but there are five members from the classic JA that are still walking this earth. Wouldn’t it be nice if they would “get together” one last time.

  3. The Jefferson Airplane not to be confused with the “F*cking Jefferson Starship” are one of my favorite bands of all time
    Their song ” Eskimo Blue Day” and the Beatles ” All You Need is Love” have been my mantra songs my whole life depending on my daily mood. Check out Rachel Price on tracks 6, 9 & 12. She is the new Rock Female vocalist Goddess and her band “Lake Street Dive” should be checked out as well.

  4. Jack Casady rocks this show! Thanks BIGO!

  5. “Lake Street Dive” Good call!

  6. Nice to hear! …though I suspect a JA reunion would be harder to negotiate than a non-nuclear accord.

  7. Thanks so much, BIGO!

  8. Likewise.. Thanks!! This was a great set as well.. White Rabbit was like Grace being there live.. Amazing.. and agree Jack was awesome..

  9. A terrific “Somebody to Love” with excellent vocals by Teresa Williams and a very prominent Casady bass line.

    By Jania on Sep 21, 2015

  10. Jania - Casady once revealed that the famous “…Rabbit” bass line was inspired by (i.e., taken from) Ravel’s “Bolero”!

  11. thanks for this - what a nice find - Hot Tuna was the first Rock band i ever saw live. That was in late 1971 by the way. I assume that the write up just came with whoever posted the music originally and wasnt written by anyone at BigO - and I hope im not sounding like Darth or anything - but is it really needed to say “Hot Tuna is formed by Jack Casady and Jorma Kaukonen as a spin-off of Jefferson Airplane.]” I mean really? I never would have known…. :-)
    Rachel Price singing with the band was a brilliant choice by the way…….

  12. Tom - Jeff Air had their reunion of original members in 1989. It worked OK; but seemed like their heart wasn’t in it; and the lp sucked.

    By Rich Galuppo on Sep 22, 2015

  13. “Law Man” is my favorite JA song.”Bark” is one of my favorite albums of all time!
    This is a keeper. I agree with Dwight. If you hadn’t told us who Hot Tuna was? Thanks!

  14. @ Rich Galuppo

    I assume you were directing your post to me and not the other Tom. I’m aware of the 80’s reunion and yes, it wasn’t much. Certainly the timing was all wrong. If they had waited another 3 years for the cultural and political climate to change then it might have been more meaningful to some extent other than just competing with their alter-ego Starshit. Let’s also remember that Hot Tuna released a mediocre slab of wax right around the same time.

    By Tom L on Sep 23, 2015

  15. Grace, for one, has been adamant that she considers herself entirely too old to be on a stage singing rock music. I assume her absence would make it easier to get Marty but I don’t know how interested the others are. The 3/4/88 Hot Tuna show with Grace and Paul sitting in as a dry run for the ’80’s reunion may have been the best performance to come out of that whole effort.

  16. I saw Paul Kantner in a small club on a cold blizzard of a night in the early 90’s. There were no more than 100 of us who braved the weather, probably less, seated in chairs in front of Paul (and his keyboard player), who told great stories of his life and of, of course, space travel. He played a surprisingly long show, considering the small crowd. It remains a highlight of my concert experiences, and certainly one of the most intimate. RIP.
