Twentiy Ninth Night With CAMI… the last night

Made it home in one piece… Myron and I. Vanessa and my lovely four and a half year old daughter met us at the airport. There is nothing like the sight, sound and feeling of an almost five year old running across the floor with a sign in her hand that said, ‘Welcome home Daddy!’ Those are the golden moments one holds close to the heart. This is going to be short today… I’m going to write a wrap up tomorrow. Suffice it to say that we all had a grand time. The folks at CAMI sure know how to put a tour together. Here is our set list from Friday night in Marin:

    Welcome home, Jorma. Sounds like it was a fab tour. With the passing of Bear, was wondering if you have any thoughts to share on the man. Us Florida folk look forward to seeing you again down our way.

    I caught the last 2 shows of the tour, and I must say, being a veteran of many, many Hot Tuna shows, I thoroughly enjoyed the 2 shows. I loved the interaction with Charlie Musselwhite, and especially loved some of the new songs from the new Hot Tuna CD. Feel blessed to be part of something great that has lasted so long. Thanks Hot Tuna!

    Sort of speaking of adjusting to Daylight Savings Time, I just wanted to let you know that while I have learned MUCH from you about playing the guitar, music, and performing from my workshops with you at Fur Peace Ranch and from BreakDownWay.com, one of the absolute most valuable lessons I have learned from you is power of a good afternoon nap. Thanks!!!!!!!!!!! (now if I could just convince my boss………..)

    Thanks for the warmth at the Colonial theater in Pittsfield.It started melting the Ice when Jack and you played Funky #7. The warmth can still be felt.Feels like 1976 when Hot Tuna played Music Inn in Lenox,MA.Hopkorv tour. And good ole Owsley was with us….Also ..thanks for the autographs…See you soon at the Iron Horse.

    I guess my question is, with a catalog that Charlie Musselwhite has..why play the same songs night after night?

    I was wondering that too. I love Jorms and HT and this is not a complaint, just an observation. This tour had virtually no preparation and rehearsing prior to the first performance or at least it seemed that way. I caught three NJ shows including the opener, and on the first night Jorma crossed his arms and listened, guitar in lap,not even playing through one of Jim Lauderdales songs. I know these are busy men and they live in far flung parts of the country but had they taken a week or so to work up some arrangements this tour could have been so much more, As it was it seemed like CAMI was just using the substantial Hot Tuna fan base to bolster the awareness of and purchase of recordings by Musselwhite and Lauderdale. Nothing wrong with that, but it could have been so much more. That said, I loved every show I saw!!! Cant wait for summer Hot Tuna!!!
