Selected as an official Record Store Day release for 2014, the legendary Jefferson Airplane and Hot Tuna guitarist’s enduring debut solo album returns to vinyl on the 40th anniversary of its original release. To celebrate this monumental 1974 album, we’re re-issuing it in two very limited edition colors.
The beautiful Sunshine Yellow vinyl color will be available at participating Record Store Day independent retailers nationwide. In addition, we have pressed a very limited Yellow & Red Split vinyl variant exclusively for our retail outlet on Long Island, Looney Tunes CDs. This gorgeous color is limited to 500 copies and will be available exclusively in-store on Record Store Day.

Produced by Jack Casady, Quah was recorded shortly after the breakup of Jefferson Airplane in 1972 and released two years later. Now painstakingly remastered from the original analog tapes by expert Bay-area engineer Jeffrey Norman, this hard-to-find folk-blues classic sounds better than ever. Kaukonen’s brilliant finger-picking guitarwork shines through like never before on old favorites like “Genesis” and “Hamar Promenade.”
Much like the album’s distinctive sound, Quah ‘s cover art is instantly recognizable. That’s why, for this very special anniversary release, we turned to the prestigious Stoughton Printing Company for the album’s jacket. Their “Old Style” Tip-On Gatefold Single-Pocket Jacket™ is rich in style and detail, while the combination of a matte finish with high gloss spot UV coating allows the album’s beautiful “Flying Angel” painting (by Kaukonen’s then-wife Margareta) to leap off the cover like never before.
