Good Morning, Bluesologists! Welcome back to another Tuesday Bluesday here in The Mermaid Lounge. We’ve got the second half of our Allman Brothers blues extravaganza today, and some SRV a bit later.
Here’s your Tuesday Bluesday line-up:
10:00 a.m. Martin Scorcese Presents The Blues: The Allman Brothers Band NEW!
This is the second half of what we began last week. We start an hour earlier today because it’s a bit longer than the first set. Essentially, we have round two of the brothers playing traditional blues songs. It’s a treat. Don’t miss it.
4:00 p.m. Album of The Week: Countdown to Ecstasy by Steely Dan
The second airing of this great album. We inject a bit of good old rock n’ roll (with a hint of jazz, of course) in the middle of all those blues.
7:00 p.m. In the Spotlight: The Music of Stevie Ray Vaughan
Generations of guitar-loving kids are still discovering the magic of this guy. He has been described as a man of simple taste with impeccable style. We cover his music from both his time with Double Trouble and as a solo artist.
It goes without saying that before, in between, and after, we have open stream as determined by The Music Mermaid. She also has simple taste but impeccable style. We run 24/7 completely free of charge. All you need to do is pull up a computer tab. (Oh yeah, you can also tune us in on your phone.)
