Here’s a vintage Jam Band cut, featuring Mighty Dave Pellicciaro on organ, Dale Fanning on drums, Arnie Livingston on bass, and Scott Law on guitar. Their college band, Tough Mama was one of the first groups to wear the Jam Band label proudly, from its inception in 1987. Even as Grunge swept their Seattle home like a tsunami of flannel and heroin, these fun-loving virtuosos carved out a niche and a loyal following, all while helping create a genre that would not be repressed. Buy this groundbreaking semi-impossible to find, badass CD o’ glee called “Seven Hidden Treasures” if you can find it on the Googlenets.
