The Phosphorescent Rat is the first Hot Tuna album recorded after guitarist Jorma Kaukonen and bass player Jack Casady left Jefferson Airplane

1974 Billboard Top 200 chart — No. #148

The Phosphorescent Rat, their fourth album, was released in 1974 after Jorma Kaukonen and Jack Casady had left the Jefferson Airplane. This album is dominated by Kaukonen's songs, such as the soulful "I See The Light."

The exploration of psychedelic depths did not appear to suffice for the founders of Jefferson Airplane — Jorma Kaukonen and Jack Casady — when searching for their musical salvation. So why not amalgamate their hippy-like simple lifestyle and folksy music with the formation of a second band called Hot Tuna, emotional yet not so synthetically hotted-up? The band's playing on the album was moving away from the softer, more acoustic sound of their first three albums, and towards a hard rock sound that would be explored on their next three albums.
