The revolution began in the 1950s 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 video camera crew. This 90 minute DVD brings all the excitement and power of that night: Electric Hot Tuna: Live At The Fillmore.
