Kaukonen & Jack Casady: Before We Were Them -
This live concert recording features recently discovered and previously unreleased music from Jefferson Airplane s fabled guitar and bass players before they became known as Hot Tuna. Jorma and Jack are joined by Joey Covington on drums, and this intense, hard-driving muscle trio creates a sonic landscape to rival Cream and the Jimi Hendrix Experience. This is essential listening for fans of Hot Tuna and Jefferson Airplane, with more than 70 minutes of music, including versions of the classic blues songs Rock Me Baby and Come Back Baby, as well as the familiar Airplane tune Star Track.
Additionally, the set list includes 4 fully-formed, rare songs that were named by Jorma and Jack for the first time for this release -- 49 years after they were played! Liner notes include contributions by both Jorma and Jack, as well as rare and previously unreleased vintage photographs. This is the third release of Bear s Sonic Journals from the Owsley Stanley Foundation, the award-winning archival series of pristine live recordings by the Grateful Dead s legendary, pioneering soundman.
