RCA’s single-disc collection of Hot Tuna’s early output isn’t as expansive as their two-CD compilation, The Best of Hot Tuna, but provides a nice springboard for those looking to find out what they were all about. The majority of the focus is on the albums First Pull Up, Then Pull Down and Burgers, when leaders Jorma Kaukonen and Jack Cassidy joined up with fiddler Papa John Creach and drummer Sammy Piazza for electrified readings of classic blues numbers, but Platinum & Gold Collection also contains four tracks from Hot Tuna’s heavy period and one from their early acoustic beginnings.
