Good Morning, Bluesologists! It’s another Tuesday Bluesday in The Mermaid Lounge, and we’ve got a bit of the blues lined up for you today starting with Janis.
Here’s today’s line-up:
11:00 a.m. Janis Joplin & The Kozmic Blues Band, Live at The Concertgebouw, Amsterdam, April 1, 1969
Doesn’t matter if she was solo, with Big Brother & The Holding Company or The Kozmic Blues Band, Janis Joplin gave us some seriously great blues-rock. She was a force of nature who burned bright, and was gone before we knew it.
3:00 p.m. Album of The Week: Heart of Mine by Maria Muldaur
Funny thing here, Maria Muldaur has a varied musical history, starting out in the folk houses of Greenwich Village, but she is also known as a pretty solid blues singer as well. On this particular album, she does a great job (and a bit bluesy at that) on the love songs of Bob Dylan (yes, he was not just about protest and social issues).
7:00 p.m. In The Spotlight: The Music of B.B. King
The master of the blues with his girl Lucille will pay us a visit as our final musical programming of the day. It’s a great way to close out Tuesday Bluesday.
Tune us in folks! Today we welcome listeners from Estonia, so what the hell are you all waiting for?
