Yeah, so last night’s Quarantine Concert Series was # 26. We taped that show four or five days ago because… our drummer Justin Guip drove down from Upstate New York and the Electric Trio spent yesterday afternoon recording a rockin’ HFT show to be aired the Saturday after Thanksgiving.

You’re welcome… 🙂

While I was on the feed last night after our recording the recurring question was about live… recorded… blah blah blah. I get it. We’re keeping good stuff coming for you folks and doing what we have to do to make it happen! Here’s last night’s set list:

    The QCS is the single best thing that has emerged from this pandemic. I eagerly await the time every week when I get to sit down and be treated to an incredible Jorma show or an awesome Hot Tuna show. How could it possibly get better than that? It doesn’t matter if it’s live or on tape; the Vault shows were a treat and so if you have to tape a QCS show ahead of time so you and Jack can actually earn a living more power to you! I first saw JA in 1969 and my first Hot Tuna show was in 1970, so it’s fifty+ years for me too. Jorma, my respect for you has gone through the roof with the QCS and I feel so much more intimately involved with this music than ever. So please Keep On Truckin’ and thank you for all you, Vanessa and the crew do for your many fans!

    Can’t have it both ways. Stay home and expect the performers to play live every Sat and for free? Anyone who complains needs their head examined. This series is already legendary. Jorma/Vanessa, and ALL who have made it happen and helped brighten our weeks! Thanks.

    Hi, Jorma (and Jack, and Vanessa, and the crew!),

    Just a note of thanks for the QCS. The shows are conistently great, and my wife and I listen ever Saturday night. It’s a moment of beauty in the week. Live, recorded, whatever….I’ve been listening to y’all since SF in 1968 (Fillmore and Winterland). Went to the Chateau several times (and I can still hear!), and heard you solo at little dives in Palo Alto and Berkeley). Chicago, North Carolina, the Beacon, Atlanta, the Birchmere, drove from DC to PA to hear Tuna play the Keswick. Any time, any way – the best! So thanks. Non illigitemus carborundum!

    My take on Grace not singing is that her performance was based on putting her full beautiful femaleness and self in to what she delivered and if she couldn’t match what she could do in her twenties in synch with the times where art and existence merged in to one thing then she wasn’t going to fail to live up to that in public and therefore ruin the vibe…Which leaves us 70’s kids missing the original and the latter performances…Can’t beat Grace…Ruled the world from a stage with a microphone with some not too shoddy back up…And don’t forget she has a disease that makes her feet feel like they are burning…

    I thought the Quarantine performances came with an implicit triple-your-money-back guarantee of satisfaction. I often wonder if the demanding nature of we the obsessed wasn’t a contributing factor in Grace Slick’s decision to refrain from performing. If she chose to sing one song in a pay per “view” cable special while visual images of her artwork were generated, I would pony up the dough in a heartbeat and be plum tickled to do so. My very favorite part of the Airplane reunion in ’89 were her contributions to “3rd Week in the Chelsea” and “Good Shepherd” among others. If half the “classic” JA line-up wants to figure out some way to collaborate, then this beggar will not presume to be a chooser.

    So-called fans(?) complaining about live versus taped shows ? Unbelievable ! They’re getting phenomenal music on a weekly basis for FREE and they
    complain ???? WTF ???

    Again, thanks so much to all of you for providing an uplifting respite from the “day to day out the window blues” caused by these troublesome and trying times we are all living through !!!

    Looking forward to the Saturday after Thanksgiving !!! Thank you in advance for that one !

    I love just plugging in the earbuds and listening whether it’s live or recorded, it is the cure for my healing process. Thanks for all you, Jack and the rest of the gang do to bring such excellent music to our ears. Rock on Brother!

    Ya’ll all workin’ like pack mules to keep us all entertained, no charge, and folks is gonna complain ‘cause it ain’t live? Live or memorex, it’s real, it’s an integral part of many peoples lives in this time of pandemic, and most importantly, it’s just because you care. Boy howdy, I could use more friends like that!

    Live on tape works for Colbert. BTW I enjoy watching along with you, your engagement with the community is awesome. If anyone doesnt appreciate live on tape then they can get their money back (oh yeah, its free)

    Relax? It’s ok? As if I had a meltdown?

    How could you read anything other than respect into my post? Let me guess: pops is an alias for the trouble-maker who turned off to visiting here.

    Brendan, relax man. People love to recall. It’s ok. Thanks Jack Thanks Jorma Thanks Vanessa and Thanks Chester

    Like your mythical Roman god-dog, our bear left no doubt message was for us. I choose to believe said bar was delivering props on my lady, like waiters at nearby Arthur Avenue restaurant. You know what I mean.

    While its nice watching when the shows are live I will take your great shows anyway you serve them,live or recorded..I said it before and will say again thanks to you and all the crew for all you guys do for keeping the music and brotherhood alive..

    Jorma last night you were asked a question if you remembered a certain show..Well I was told a story about a NYC Palladium show in the mid 70sfrom one of my stagehand union brothers.It was a late show and about 5am that the head guy there(who may he RIP was also the Pres. of my film local IATSE 52) that he pulled the plug on you because they had to set up for another show and go home to sleep and you just kept on playing.
    .Any recollection? Those late shows are legendary…Sun was shining when we left…

    I showed up late to more than a few shows and you fellers never complained, so I won’t squawk about tape delay. I put on tube at 10:00 est and listened passively, anyway. I heard you describe Italian mountain show.
    While on bench at far end of bar exhibit at Bx Zoo, a grizzly walked over and left a message, which my Paula was pleased to tell me was a friendly gesture.

    S’il vous plait, qu’est-ce que le flux en direct? I should stay off any direct feed regardless, being one known to put foot-in-mouth, but am wondering.

    Thanks so much for the performances and goodwill.
    I was looking at tunabase for the set list I wish I could relive. My first HT show at the Centrum in Cherry Hill. In the notes, joining you for Invitation was Jaime Howell. Any comments?
    You were wearing the famous Hot Tuna @ SJC shirt.
