The revolution began in the 1950's and it was televised. Artists like Elvis Presley and Buddy Holly appeared on prime time, jolting the well-groomed homes of white Americans with their interpretations of black music, while the real stuff - Lightnin' Hopkins and Chuck Berry - infested suburbia through records, assailing young kids like Jorma Kaukonen and Jack Casady in the musical jugular. The Delta Blues sound spawned Hot Tuna; a three decade wonder band with one of the most faithful audiences in popular music, spanning 25 years and a prodigious recording longevity.
In December of 1994 Hot Tuna travelled to San Francisco and put on their electric instruments to play a concert at the legendary Fillmore auditorium. It was a homecoming and the night had the atmosphere and electricity of a very special and unique occasion. Fortunately the moment was captured by a camera crew. This DVD brings all the excitement and power of that night.
