Good Morning, Bluesologists! It is, once again, Tuesday Bluesday here in The Mermaid Lounge and we have some excellent programming for you, including music from the original Fleetwood Mac.
Here’s your Tuesday Bluesday line-up:
11:00 a.m. Peter Green’s Fleetwood Mac Live at The Warehouse, New Orleans, January 31-February 1, 1970
Indeed, the rumors are true: The original Fleetwood Mac wasn’t a pop-rock band. That happened with the departure of Peter Green and the addition of Buckingham/Nicks. The original Fleetwood Mac was a blues band, led by Peter Green. We have the original band live from The Warehouse in New Orleans, recorded over a two-day period.
4:00 p.m. Album of The Week: Downhill From Everywhere by Jackson Browne
The second airing of this week’s Album of The Week, which just happens to be a brand new album by singer-songwriter Jackson Browne. He has remained true to himself over five decades in the music business. His message remains the same, and he delivers it with the same passion as he always has, but this time with the perspective that time is running out. That’s why we love him here.
7:00 p.m. Eric Clapton & B.B. King: Riding With The King
Two blues masters here, and the results are totally pleasing to the ears. This is actually what we should call ‘Not Our Album of The Week’ as it was their first collaboration, released in 2000. It won the Grammy for the Best Traditional Blues Album, reached number one on Billboard’s Top Blues Albums, and was certified multi-platinum in the U.S.
As always, we’ll close by telling you it’s an excellent day to give us a listen here on #BecomeUngovernable Radio. We are totally ungovernable and outside the system. We cost you nothing. We run 24/7 uninterrupted by advertising. And we do not buy any of our music from either Amazon or Apple. Believe it or not, there are other places to buy music.
