On Sunday, We Feature Our New AOW by Tracy Nelson & Mother Earth, Plus ‘The Female Species’ EP Later, June 5, 2022

Here’s your Sunday lineup:

11:00 a.m. Album of The Week: Living With The Animals by Mother Earth NEW!

It’s tough to find a decent photo of Tracy Nelson & Mother Earth, believe me. We tried mightily but the best we could come up with was this poster. Etta James once called Nelson, “a bad white girl.” And she certainly is bad in the best sense of the word. One of the absolute best combinations in music happened when Ronstadt sang Tracy Nelson’s Down So Low, and you will hear Nelson’s version on this album. While Mother Earth is often presented as merely a vehicle for Nelson, that’s an unfair characterization. The band was more than that, and you’ll see that on this album.

3:00 p.m. The Female Species: Various Artists

Not to be confused with our ‘Ladies Day Out’ EP. While we certainly include woman artists in this playlist, this one’s about the use of the word lady, girl, woman, chick, whatever the term, in the title, lyrics, or both. You’ll hear from Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, Talking Heads, Jackson Brown, The Boogaloo Swamis, John Mayall, Hot Tuna, The Eagles, Elvis Presley, Fleetwood Mac, Electric Light Orchestra, Percy Sledge, The Beatles, Peter Green’s Fleetwood Mac, Roy Orbison, Aretha Franklin, Billy Joel, Jimi Hendrix Experience, Bob Dylan, Van Morrison, The Beach Boys, Linda Ronstadt, The Temptations, and more!

Sunday. It’s a day of rest, people. Even the big guy (whomever that might be) took the day off from the entitled masses. That’s what you should be doing now. And what better way to spend the day than right here. Because life is too damned short to listen to bad music.
