Happy Tuesday, Bluesologists! We’ve got some great new blues material for you today, and both features are brand new to The Mermaid Lounge!
Here’s your Tuesday Bluesday line-up:
11:00 a.m. In The Spotlight: The Music of Delbert McClinton NEW!
One of the great blues-rock and electric bluesmen of his generation is In the Spotlight today. He’s also a multi-instrumentalist and a singer-songwriter. And today we feature the best of a career that has spanned six decades.
3:00 p.m. Album of The Week: Smiley Smile by The Beach Boys
We take a short break in the blues programming to feature a theoretical 19-song album that would have been simply called Smile had it not been abandoned by the Beach Boys. I know. It’s all very complicated. You can learn more about it if you look back on Sunday’s post! Or you can simply click on the sidebar Album of The Week image.
7:00 p.m. Rick Danko & Paul Butterfield Live From The Blue Note, Boulder, Colorado, December 13, 1979 NEW!
This is a great collaboration here between two late greats, Rick Danko of The Band and eminent bluesman Paul Butterfield. We have them ‘live’ together from The Blue Note here.
Every Tuesday is Bluesday here in The Mermaid Lounge. As such, this is a great day for you to join listeners from around the world. I mean, we’re totally free. Doesn’t cost you a penny. No effort beyond pulling up a tab and tuning in. No commercials. And no bullshit.
