Good Morning, Bluesologists! It’s another Tuesday Bluesday here in The Mermaid Lounge, and we’ve got a great blues line-up in store for you. And let’s not forget the second airing of our Album of The Week.
Here’s today’s line-up:
11:00 a.m. Stevie Ray Vaughan Live at The Austin Opera House, Austin, Texas, April 15, 1984
SRV was riding high at this time and it shows. Today’s performance is from the Austin Opera House, and we know you’re going to love it.
3:00 p.m. Album of The Week: Sister Kate by Kate Taylor
The second airing of Sister Kate is upon us. We understand if you lost sight of Kate Taylor in the early 70s, with both James and Livingston making records. But Sister Kate is a fine album, and Kate Taylor is a great talent in her own right.
7:00 p.m. The Allman Brothers Band Live at A & R Studios, New York, August 26, 1971
No matter what anyone tells you, The Allman Brothers Band are the granddaddys of Southern rock, and certainly the finest purveyors of blues-rock on the planet. Today we have them live at A & R Studios.
I don’t know what the weather is where you are, but outside The Mermaid Lounge it’s far too hot to venture out. Some of us have no choice, but if you do, then this is the place to be. Tune us in.
