Good Morning, Bluesologists! Here we are in The Mermaid Lounge preparing for another Tuesday Bluesday, and we’re digging deep for some stuff we haven’t heard in a while.
Here’s your line-up for today:
11:00 a.m. Eric Clapton With Jimmy Page, Jeff Beck & Joe Cocker
Here’s some real blue-eyed blues rock for you, led by Eric Clapton who has a penchant for getting his friends together for a great time. This is no exception.
3:00 p.m. Peter Green’s Fleetwood Mac Live at The Warehouse, New Orleans (1970)
Most people think of Fleetwood Mac as a pop band, but the original Fleetwood Mac was a blues band, led by Peter Green. This is a great collection here known commercially as The Warehouse Tapes. Keep in mind this was recorded in 1970, so there’s no great engineering going on with this stuff. It’s just…there.
7:00 p.m. Album of The Week: Let It Be…Naked by The Beatles
Again, the stripped down version of the Fab Four’s final album the way it was originally meant to be heard, and the way we here in The Mermaid Lounge prefer it.
