Good Morning, Musicologists! Here’s today’s funky mix of music for your listening pleasure, including a repeat performance of yesterday’s unveiling of the live Wildflowers songs.
Here’s your week-opening line-up:
12:00 p.m. Derek & The Dominos Live at The Fillmore East, October 23 & 24, 1970
Derek & The Dominos, for those not in the know, is a British blues-rock band populated by Eric Clapton, Bobby Whitlock, Carl Radle & Jim Gordon. Their live recordings come from two nights at The Fillmore East. If we were using the term ‘supergroup’ back in the day, this just might be one.
5:00 p.m. Emmylou Harris: Rare Tracks & Forgotten Gems
Here are some tunes you may have forgotten that Emmylou Harris did, some you didn’t know she did, and others she has done with her contemporaries. In short, it’s a great little playlist.
8:00 p.m. Album of The Week: Wildflowers & All The Rest by Tom Petty REPLAY!
A replay of yesterday’s live versions of Wildflowers songs as chosen by Tom Petty’s family and bandmates. These may not be as much a revelation as the upcoming selections will be, but they certainly reflect a band at the top of its game and having a great fucking time on stage. And isn’t that why we love live music?
People, you need to get with the program. Seriously. We’re not going away, so you might as well just give in and pull up a tab. Because, hell, it doesn’t cost you anything and we run all day and night. We are your escape in the middle of this pestilence. Get your musical shit together.
