Good Morning, Bluesologists! We’ve got another Tuesday Bluesday on tap here in The Mermaid Lounge and we’ve got some great live music from The Blues Project, and B.B. King In the Spotlight a bit later!
Here’s your Tuesday Bluesday programming:
11:00 a.m. The Blues Project, Recorded Live at The Matrix Club, San Francisco, CA, September 7-15, 1966
The Blues Project did a one-week residency at the fabled Matrix Club in San Francisco in September of 1966, which was recorded and made an unofficial release. People often ask who was in The Blues Project, so here we go: Bass/Flute-Andy Kulberg, Drums-Roy Blumenfeld, Lead Guitar-Danny Kalb, Organ-Al Kooper, Rhythm Guitar-Steve Katz.
3:00 p.m. Album of The Week: The Traveling Wilburys, Volume 3
Back for the second airing of this great album by this great supergroup. Hands down, every time a poll is taken, The Wilburys ride the top of the “Best Supergroup” list. As one music critic said, The Traveling Wilburys are the only supergroup worthy of being called either a group or super. Or something to that effect. And I confess I rarely put much stock in music critics. But this time I agree.
7:00 p.m. In the Spotlight: The Music of B. B. King
We close out our Tuesday Bluesday programming with the master of da blues and his best friend, Lucille. And that’s the way it should be.
So, kids. If you’re a blues lover, this is always a good day to have your first experience with us. Know what I mean? Because not only do we give you the blues, but before, in between, and after you get our wide Open Stream 24/7. And we won’t cost you a cent. Honest.
