Good Morning, Bluesologists! We’ve got some great blues programming for you today from The Mermaid Lounge along with our Album of the Week.
Here’s your Tuesday Bluesday programming:
11:00 a.m. John Mayall & The Bluesbreakers Live at The BBC (1965-1967)
A great collection of live Bluesbreakers songs recorded live at the BBC between 1965 and 1967, with the great John Mayall at the helm. It also includes two previously unreleased songs from the Old Grey Whistle Test performances, So Much To Do and Taxman Blues.
3:00 p.m. Album of The Week: Blue by Joni Mitchell
The second airing of one of the greatest recorded albums in popular music history by the great Joni Mitchell, written and recorded during a very turbulent time in her personal life.
7:00 p.m. Muddy Waters: The Johnny Winter Sessions (1976-1981)
Johnny Winter assembled a great backing band for Muddy Waters — a giant of the Chicago blues genre — during these recording sessions, including Pinetop Perkins on keyboards and James Cotton on harp. All the great blues standards are here, Mannish Boy, Baby Please Don’t Go, Good Morning Little School Girl, and even Champagne and Reefer.
The festivities begin at 11:00 a.m. EST, and there’s no better way to get your fill of blues in. We’re totally free around the clock. We don’t ask you to subscribe or give us a credit card. And best of all, there are no commercials to interrupt the flow.
