Good Morning, Musicologists! We’re already at midweek and we’ve got some great music for you here today, including some live Creedence at The Fillmore!
Here’s your midweek line-up:
11:00 a.m. Creedence Clearwater Revival Live at The Fillmore, San Francisco, July 4, 1971 NEW!
Today we have the first live playlist from one of our absolute favorite bands here in The Mermaid Lounge, Creedence Clearwater Revival. Creedence pumped out some of the best rock n’ roll swamp music on the planet, sounding just like they were born on the bayou, even though they were four guys from Berkeley, California. This concert is another that was broadcast on KSAN.
3:00 p.m. Bonnie Raitt & Friends Live From Ultrasonic Studios, New York, October 17, 1972
Bonnie Raitt gets together with Lowell George of Little Feat, her bassist, Freebo, and bluesman John Hammond, for a little party at Ultrasonic Studios curated and broadcast by influential rock radio station WLIR-FM on Long Island. A great version of Blind Faith’s Can’t Find My Way Home is included.
7:00 p.m. The Summer of Love, Volume Two: Various Artists
We skipped this volume yesterday because it was Tuesday Bluesday, but we have volume two here for you today, with music from The Jefferson Airplane, Eric Burdon & The Animals, Manfred Mann, Jimi Hendrix, Bobbie Gentry, The Turtles, The Byrds, Stevie Wonder, The Rascals and more!
We’re kicking some ass today here in The Mermaid Lounge and would like you to tune us in. Join your friends online today from The Faroe Islands, Sweden, Spain, The Russian Federation, France, Germany (always), Italy and Portugal. All you need is a computer tab.
