    That’s quite a set list from day one of Dark Star! Any idea what the length of time was for this? Congrats on firing shots like this.

    Took retirement last month (and my tech friends know how rare it is to call your shot) and the wife said what do you want to do now that you are retired ? Of course it was to go see Hot Tuna at the MIM ! Not exactly around the corner from West Palm Beach, but well worth the journey. Besides an awesome set, what a spectacular museum, the inlay exhibit was fantastic as well all the instruments from around the world. Good times.

    Jorma does jubilant very well.
    And we get to enjoy what he gives out, as we take it in.
    It’s very comforting.@carlo pagliano

    New Song into Been So Long – two Hot Tuna classics. In Phoenix you pulled out all the stops. Hot Tuna rises up to reign supreme. Haven’t heard New Song in decades. It is my favorite Tuna song.

    Sun came out this morning
    Highway showed my way

    Your smile releases all my life
    Like flowers under rain
