Thanks to everyone at Jamband News, especially Bill Whiting, for selecting Steady As She Goes as on the of the Top 10 Albums of 2011. We greatly appreciate all the love and respect. Right Back at You! And Thanks to all our friends, fans and supporters for making 2011 a fantastic year! See you in 2012!

Here are the Jamband News Top Ten Albums of 2011

10. Warren Haynes, Man in Motion Stax- I listened to this one on several road trips, going from festival to concert, and it never got old. Rock, gospel, jam, soul and blues combine for a top notch combination as done by the hardest working man in the business, Warren Haynes.
9. Hot Tuna, Steady As She Goes, Red House- Hot Tuna gets back to basics with winning results. Kaukonen and Casady at their very best make this one a must own.
8. Amos Lee, Mission Bell Blue Note Records- Amos Lee opens up his songwriting talent on radio friendly tracks like “Windows Are Rolled Down” and “El Camino.” A Keeper.
7. Lucinda Williams, Blessed Lost Highway- Lucinda Williams sets the standard once again with brilliant compositional depth on rewarding numbers such as “Buttercup,” “Born to Be Loved,” and “Kiss Like Your Kiss.” One of the best albums of this and/or any year.
6. Preservation Hall Jazz Band and The Del McCoury Band, American Legacies MCCOURY Music- This is a once in a lifetime collaboration hybrid that is simply stunning to sit and listen to. Highly recommended.
5. The Joy Formidable, The Big Roar Atlantic- The sleeper hit of the year, it gets better over time. Pounding big rock melodies and hooks that grab and take hold of the imagination. Songs like “Whirring,” “A Heavy Abacus” and “Austere” foretell a bright future for this young band.
4. Tedeschi Trucks Band, Revelator Sony Legacy- Soul, Gospel and Blues collide into one big happy family on “Midnight in Harlem” and “Love Has Something Else To Say.” And, the rest of the world is better because of it.
3. My Morning Jacket, Circuital ATO Records/Red- Louisville, KY’s finest serve up tasty helpings of the year’s finest ear candy on the memorable rock and rhythm laced monsters “Victory Dance,” “Wonderful” and “Holdin’ On to Black Metal.” ‘Nuff Said.
2. Wilco, The Whole Love Anti- Probably the most efficient statement Jeff Tweedy has produced in some time, and likely the most accessible and universal. A true high point for the group and an uncommonly influential disc for aspiring composers and musicians alike.
1. Over The Rhine, The Long Surrender Great Speckled Dog- The masterpiece of the year. Elegant, sleek and sensual, this recording is pieced together with great care and brings out the best performances of the year from Karin Bergquist and Linford Detweiler on the shining gems, “Undamned (with Lucinda Williams),” “Rave On,” and “All My Favorite People.” 2011′s crown jewel.

Thanks  to Kevin Morgan at KMS for the outstanding cover art! He’s the best!

WOW, what a great East Coast Tour this has been. The crowds have been large and enthusiastic. We love our fans, They have been there for us through good and bad, through thick and thin and we really appreciate that. Thanks to all of you who came out to see us and to the others who weren’t able to make it but support us in many other ways, we are very grateful. Thanks for the love.

We would also like to thank Steve Earle and his management. It has also been a wonderful experience sharing this tour with Steve and his band. Steve is an outstanding songwriter and musician, a true poet and social commentator in this world! We have had so much fun with Steve and his crew that we hope we can do this again sometime soon! Let us know what you think.

Many of you have asked about getting downloads of these shows. Our archivist (Jason) has been on the road with us and hasn’t had time to organize or upload any shows lately. He promises he will start to roll them out as soon as possible when the tour is over. We will keep you posted as to the his progress. You can also go to iTunes and checkout some of the past shows

If you would like a copy of our Electric Hot Tuna Poster, you can go to the “Press” section of this page and download the PDF of the poster. Put it on a CD and take it to your nearest copy center and have them print you one! Don’t forget to mention it was done by our good friend Kevin Morgan.
