I've been a Hot Tuna fan since my teens. Haven't heard them in a long while. Thanks for the reminder. I have all of their albums on vinyl. I'll need to dig a few out.

I just picked up a Jorma Koukenan Too Hot To Handle LP at my local record shop. It says Mark Levinson recording studio on the back of the record. I will have to give it a listen. The only other Jorma I have is with the Airplane, so this should be interesting. Thanks for the Hot tip on the TUNA record.
One of my favorites. I did not like like the original transfer to CD at all. Same can be said for Blows Against the Empire and Manhole.
My friend just brought over a CD from that same show titled live at the Berkeley House. This has tracks not heard on the first album. A lot of songs that ended up on the Burgers album are here. This CD has an excellent mix. Clean as heck. I would like to see this show complete in a box set.
Another LP to watch out for if you don't already have it is "Hot Tuna- Final Vinyl" on the Grunt label. Mine has the Kendun mastering mark on the run out, and as many of you know, some feel the Kendun mastered Rumors by Fleetwood Mac is the one to have. Songs include "Hesitation Blues", "Hot Jelly Roll Blues", and "Candy Man".
