Tapes of this club gig by guitarist Jorma Kaukonen and bassist Jack Casady, on stripped-down folk-blues holiday from Jefferson Airplane, became their 1970 debut (with harp man Will Scarlett) as Hot Tuna. This CD of earthy, gently swinging outtakes has acoustic spins on later electric-Tuna covers ("Candy Man," "Keep On Truckin' ") and a long spell of intricate fingerpicking and dancing electric bass in Kaukonen's "Sea Child."

"By no means is this record just a sexual, angry record," she told Rolling Stone. "The song wasn't written for the sake of revenge. It was written for the sake of release. I'm actually a pretty rational, calm person."
