Good Morning, Ungovernables! Here we are with another Tuesday Bluesday and we’ve got Roomful of Blues in The Spotlight, with the Allman Brothers Band bringing up the rear a bit later. Sandwiched in between is our Album of the Week.
Here’s your Tuesday Bluesday line-up:
11:00 a.m. Tuesday Bluesday With Roomful of Blues in The Spotlight! NEW!
This is a great fucking band whose name is not on the tip of everybody’s tongue, in spite of their critically-acclaimed history and their 50-year recording career. I’ve been listening to them for a while and even saw them once. They are based in Rhode Island, and began in 1967 when guitarist Duke Robillard and pianist Al Copley formed Roomful of Blues. They have changed personnel over the years and have added horns, exploring the R & B and swing influence. Here in The Mermaid Lounge, we are now beginning to upload their catalogue. Here’s a preview.
3:00 p.m. Album of the Week: Miles of Aisles by Joni Mitchell
A musical review of Mitchell’s tour in support of the amazing Court & Spark album. It was Joni Mitchell’s first live album, and her first tour with a backing band — Tom Scott & The L.A. Express.
7:00 p.m. The Allman Brothers Band Live at the Atlanta International Pop Festival, July 3 & 5, 1970
It’s like a Tuesday Bluesday double feature here today in The Mermaid Lounge. We add the grand kahuna of blues here with the brothers.
