Good Morning, Bluesicologists! It is indeed Tuesday Bluesday here in The Mermaid Lounge and we’ve got some new additions to our rotation and our playlists today!
Here’s today’s line-up:
11:00 a.m. The Blues Project Live at The Matrix Club, San Francisco, September 1966 NEW!
The Blues Project formed in New York’s Greenwich Village in 1965, and consisted of Al Kooper (keyboards and vocals), Roy Blumenfeld (drums), Danny Kalb (guitar and vocals), Steve Katz (guitar and vocals), and Andy Kulberg (bass and flute). They were short-timers, lasting only two years, but they were very good. Al Kooper and Steve Katz moved on to form Blood, Sweat & Tears after their break up.
3:00 p.m. Album of The Week: Joan Baez by Joan Baez
The second airing of this week’s featured album by 19-year-old Joan Baez.
7:00 p.m. Stevie Ray Vaughan Live at The Austin Opera House, Texas, April 15, 1984
I was feeling the need to get Stevie Ray Vaughan back into the mix here on a Tuesday Bluesday, and we have him live from the Austin Opera House. Light the fire and put your feet up.
We are back in retail hell today, but we certainly hope we’ve left you in good hands. Remember, we’re free. We don’t ask you for a thing. Tune us in and see for yourself.
