Sunday, as you know, is our long-playlist day and it’s the ladies’ turn today. But before that, we debut Creedence Clearwater Revival’s Willy & The Poor Boys as our Album of The Week.
Here’s today’s line-up:
11:00 a.m. Album of The Week: Willy & The Poor Boys by Creedence Clearwater Revival NEW!
The year 1969 was certainly a prolific one for Creedence. Willy & The Poor Boys was the third and final album (and their fourth overall) released that year, coming on the heels of Green River, another fine album. (Cosmo’s Factory was the other release.)
Today we give you the 40th anniversary edition of the album because it has a couple of live versions thrown in along with the great Down On The Corner jam with the incomparable Booker T & The MGs, who also appear throughout the album.
3:00 p.m. Ladies Day Out: Various Artists
After CCR, we turn it over to the women of rock, who still get the short end of the stick to this day. After her many years of contribution to music, Carole King just this year made it into the Rock n’ Roll Hall of Fame, as we induct rappers into a HOF that is supposed to be about rock n’ roll, not rap. Pisses me off. Aside from Carole King, you’ll hear Joni Mitchell, Carly Simon, Linda Ronstadt, Emmylou Harris, Bonnie Raitt, Dusty Springfield, Aretha Franklin, Ann Peebles, Nicolette Larson, Maria Muldaur, Wendy Waldman, Eva Cassidy, Valerie Carter, and many, many more. If you’re a misogynist, this is definitely not your venue. We are honoring our commitment to highlighting the ladies.
A great day indeed to click on the link below and kick back. It’s Sunday, a day of rest, and we’ve got some great music here for you today.
