Good Morning, Ungovernables! Here we are on another Tuesday Bluesday with Stevie Ray Vaughan. We also toss in some Bonnie Raitt, always good for those bluesy days.
Here’s your Tuesday Bluesday line-up:
11:00 a.m. Tuesday Bluesday! Stevie Ray Vaughan: Blues You Can Use, Recorded Live on the Live Alive Tour, Philadelphia, PA, June 30, 1987 NEW!
Stevie Ray Vaughan was known as “the second coming of the blues” before his untimely death in a helicopter crash at the age of 35 in 1990, but his legend endures as one of the most amazing blues guitarists of all time. Bonnie Raitt dedicated her album Luck of The Draw to Stevie Ray. It’s only fitting that they are scheduled here on the same day.
3:00 p.m. Album of the Week: Heaven Is In Your Mind by Traffic
Steve Winwood is another of those artists whose legend will endure long after his mortal life, and with good reason. Everything this guy has touched is worth listening to on some level, and he has been around for a very long time. One of my favorite videos of all time is Steve Winwood and Tom Petty on stage together for Can’t Find My Way Home during the Heartbreakers’ 2014 tour.
7:00 p.m. Bonnie Raitt Live at The Rainbow Room, Philadelphia, PA, February 22, 1972
Bonnie Raitt is another of those female pioneers who never disappoints. It’s amazing to me that even the classic rock stations fail to give these women their due. But here in The Mermaid Lounge, their presence is scheduled to grow.
So, again. What the hell are you waiting for?
