Twenty Fifth Day With CAMI

Another shorty here. Last night was our last in this part of the North American Continent. It’s been quite a while since I’ve worked the Kansas City area and this was nice on a number of levels. I got to say hello to some old friends I haven’t seen in a very long time… there’s nothing like old friends… indeed. On a sadder note, our dear friend Jim Lauderdale was not with us last night. His Mom is not doing well back in the Carolinas and he headed back east to be with her. Thoughts and prayers for the Lauderdale’s… can’t hurt… could help. In any case, here is our set list from last night:

    Jorma, Thoroughly enjoyed the show last night. Yardley Hall was a great place to experience Hot Tuna. Put a smile on my face through both sets. Prayers with Jim’s Mom, Jim and family. Hope to see you all around here again sometime. The best to you and yours.

    A true slice of Americana music, blending Tuna’s interpretations and originals, thanks for coming to KC! As Jorma said, Cristo Redentor was so intense, blending al the elements of the band, that he wasn’t sure what song to play next. Looked like everyone was having fun on stage, made me think of a lyric from a Peter Wolf song I heard recently, “You have to glow to be able to shine.” Hot Tuna Blues was shining last night!! I only hope I can glow like that when I’m 70.

    Still smokin’ after all theses years….Barry’s poignant and artfully mandolin, Skoota’s timely backdrop and backbone, GE’s smooth slide with crisp chords and leads, Charlie’s unbelievable range and mastery of the mouth organ, Jack’s long fingers surrounding the bass to release the majestic and complementary notes and chords to Jorma’s masterful command of the guitar whether attacking or laying down a quiet melodic rift, Hot Tuna is still Hot Shit!!

    My prayers go out to Jim and his mother. Keep on truckin’ Tuna and hope to see you again.

    Hi Guys
    Great show last night.I moved out here from Long Island 5 years ago, and have been waiting since then for you to come. Missed my (at least) annual visit with you.
    One (slightly nerdy) comment: Falls are one of the leading causes of injuries (motor vehicle accidents are the other), and in our age group, if you fall and (G-d forbid) break your hip you’ve got only a 40% chance of ever going home. So I was wondering if you could do something about the cords everywhere. Duct tape ran along the length of the cord can hold them down and your feet won’t get caught. I hope I don’t wait another 5 years to see you, but if I have to I’d like to see you in the same good shape you appeared to be last night. I’m a safety professional (big surprise, huh) and have seen too many people get hurt doing something they do every day without thinking about it. So, let’s be careful out there. Incidentally, I took a nap before the show. It occurred to me that 35 years ago I would have taken acid. Guess times change. Thanks again for the great visit.

    The only time we have in Life is Now. These guys make music fresh every time they play. Saturday’s set was no exception. “What Are They Doing In Heaven Today” and “River of Time” were a tender tribute and community prayer for Jim and family and consoling words for all of us who have moved through life’s changes. Not a bad soundtrack for difficult times. Keep up the good work, all.

    Thanks for the awesome show guys. Saw my first HT show at the Cains Ballroom back in early 70s and several more throughout the Bay Area as the years went by. Fast forward to 2011 and I am still in awe!

    Going towards the quintessence of this Gift handed us under the name of Life, the pure spectrum of Rock gives a serious shake to one’s bones, the dancing skeletons to the sound of R & R far in the sixties seamed a real brainwave just right for those times, which ain’t so euphemistic an expression considering the long wave of fifty more years passed over our survived hair. You play music when you’re a young man, when middleage you’re still playing, when aged Rock is still there full steam ahead, stronger than all the philosophies & theories. Rock is the One invention of man on earth, no surprise since Beethoven’s stellar symphonies were for the people of the 19th century what Rock is for us just now, with the difference that music nowadays explores and vivifies inner parts of us that was unthinkable right two centuries ago. Young men of this millennium have their life all yet to come, whereas for us born around WW2, for those who choosed R & R as a supreme expression of art in times above suspicion, either musicians or listeners/fans, for us strong strugglers R & R is rewarding our life with all the power ever pouring, it’s what we were looking for, above all when twenty, it’s what we find at the door everyday at seventy or so, with a difference though between the listener/fan and the artist himself who’s thouroughly involved both physically/spiritually and conceptually in creating the fantastic Universe of R & R. Our beloved Grace said that to go on stage and play Rock at a certain age could be a bit awkward. Rolling Stones rarefied their appearances and CDs, some old Stars play Rock but it tastes more folkloristic than else.
    So sheer Jorma!
    Every heartbeat is a thankYou letter.
    Tuna’s armour gleaming in the sunshine!
    Always Grateful Thanks, Jorma!

    Thank you, Jorma, Jack, Barry, Charlie, GE, and Skoota for coming out to the KC area. My first exposure to anything close to Tuna was when the Airplane came to Wichita in 1971. Papa John Creach was with you guys at that show and in between some airplane stuff, you took a break and played a few Tuna Tunes. Shortly after that I ran out and bought the very first Tuna album. Played the grooves off that one and have been a huge fan ever since. PLEASE come back to Kansas some time! Also, our thoughts and prayers are with Jim and his family. We missed ya, Jim.
