Good Morning, Ungovernables! Welcome to day whatever-the-fuck-it-is of our discontent. While we’re all waiting for you to rise up, we’ll try to make life a bit more bearable.
Here’s your line-up for Thursday:
12:00 p.m. Janis Joplin Live at Winterland 1968
This may seem like a morbid discussion, but a number of musicians have died in their 27th year. Kurt Cobain. Robert Johnson. Amy Winehouse. But three of the most famous? Janis Joplin. Jimi Hendrix. Jim Morrison. All dead at 27. All members of the ’27 Club.’
4:00 p.m. Album of the Week: Sargeant Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band by The Beatles
This is arguably the greatest album of all time. Not only was the music brilliant, but so was the album packaging. It was the first album to open like a book, and the first to feature the lyrics printed on the cover. The front cover photograph remains a conversation piece to this day.
7:00 p.m. The Beach Boys: The Smile Sessions NEW!
It is said that Brian Wilson was the creative force behind The Beach Boys. Artists from Linda Ronstadt to Paul McCartney consider him a musical genius, but all of the members conributed to the whole. These sessions prove that The Beach Boys weren’t just another ‘surf music’ band (although they were pretty damned good at that too).
We’re here. We’re free. We ask no information. We just deliver the goods.
