Consumer Guide by Review Date: 1974-06-01


Hot Tuna: The Phosphorescent Rat (Grunt, 1973) After four albums, or is it five, this spin-off also sounds tired and like themselves, more consistent than their sister, and why does anyone care when they don't seem to? At least when they were doing country blues the material justified the music's indolence. C

Dewey Redman: The Ear of the Behearer (Impulse, 1973) I tried, as promised, but except for brief snatches, many of which caught me in attitudes passive enough to approach the comatose, this has that fatal new-thing sound: noise aspiring to be music. Don't get me wrong--that may not be what it is. But it is what it sounds like. C+
