Monday Rears Its Ugly Head Again, But We’ve Got Your Musical Back Here In The Mermaid Lounge, August 30, 2021

Good Morning, Music Lovers! I have never liked Mondays. When I worked in corporate America, we used to call it Moan-Day. Now I have Monday’s off from retail hell, which makes it easier for me to acclimate when I get back there. Today, we’ve got great music for you to start your work week. I hope this helps.

Today, we’ve got George Harrison and Eric Clapton live in Nagoya, Japan

Here’s your musical line-up:

11:00 a.m. In The Spotlight: The Music of The J. Geils Band

Here in Boston, we have two formidable bands in rock music history: The J. Geils Band and Aerosmith. I have always preferred The J. Geils Band myself, perhaps because their roots are more seated in R & B, but also because they were more versatile. (Also because Steven Tyler is a horse’s ass, but that’s another story.) Today we put J. Geils In the Spotlight.

3:00 p.m. Little Feat Live at The Rainbow Theatre, London, UK, August 4, 1977

Another Mermaid Lounge favorite here, Little Feat. This was one sweet band, and their songs were the favorites of many a performer, including Linda Ronstadt and Bonnie Raitt. In fact, Bill Payne, the piano player for Little Feat was also Bonnie’s piano player on many tours. It was also rumored that Lowell George was madly in love with Linda Ronstadt. But I digress because I love musical trivia. At any rate, I think of all the bands who lived beyond their leaders’ death, Little Feat was the most formidable. But still, the Lowell George version of Little Feat could not be touched.

7:00 p.m. George Harrison with Eric Clapton & His Band Live at the International Exhibition Centre, Nagoya, Japan, December 5, 1991

Two great friends perform live together. As it turns out, the road-resistant George Harrison only played two live stints during his solo career. This turned out to be his second, and final, live performance.

Give us a shot, folks. We’re totally free. Personally, I hate it when I have to fill out a bunch of information before I can access something on the web. That’s not us. You don’t need to give us anything, frankly. All you need to do is pull up a tab and click the link below.
