Jack Casady and Jorma Kaukonen wanted to call their acoustic blues band Hot Shit, but label pressure made them settle for Hot Tuna. But this is indeed hot shit, with Casady’s guitar-like runs on bass perfectly underscoring Kaukonen’s intricate fingerpicking. From 1971 to 1976, Tuna’s music was as electric and jangly as that of their former band, the Airplane, but they’ve since reverted to acoustic roots. Still, there’s a humbucker under the neck of Kaukonen’s guitar, and he ain’t afraid to use it when the blues need some electricity, Hot Tuna style. —Grant Britt
