Good Morning, Summer Lovers! It’s going to be 95 degrees outside The Lounge here today, and it’s a good thing we’ve got AC crankin’ because it’s pretty hot inside as well!
Here’s your Sunday funday line-up:
11:00 a.m. Album of The Week: Old Yellow Moon by Emmylou Harris and Rodney Crowell NEW!
This fantastic 2013 release won the Grammy Award for the Best Americana Album. It was Harris’ 13th Grammy. The album itself was her twenty-seventh studio release, and Crowell’s tenth. Although they originally met in 1974, it took them until 2012 to record an album together. I saw the tour promoting this album, and the musical chemistry between Emmylou Harris and Rodney Crowell was amazing.
It only took the pair two years to release a follow up album called The Travelin’ Kind, and we’ll be featuring that as a future Album of The Week.
3:00 p.m. The Original Sixties Rotation: Various Artists
This was the very first playlist we ever put together back when we started, and it features The Beatles, The Dave Clark Five, Johnny Rivers, Bobbie Gentry, Little Eva, The Searchers, The Who, The Supremes, Bob Dylan, The Hollies, The Turtles, Petula Clark, Barry McGuire, The Grateful Dead, The Rolling Stones, Gerry & The Pacemakers, The Kinks, and many more! More than five hours of uninterrupted musical nirvana!
It’s hotter than Hades out there, and I’m hunkering down here in The Lounge with some good music. We won’t cost you a damned penny. That’s no lie. We’re not going to ask you to subscribe. And we’re certainly not going to sell you anything. Why not join your friends from around the world and do the same?
