It’s another Tuesday Bluesday here in The Mermaid Lounge, and we’ve got our ‘Best of Chicago Blues’ EP and Gregg Allman ‘live’ at The House of Blues in New Orleans bringing up the rear. In between, we’ve got our Album of The Week.
Here’s your Tuesday Bluesday lineup:
10:00 a.m. The Best of Chicago Blues: Various Artists
There’s nothing quite like the blues coming out of Chi-Town, and we’ve got some fine bluesologists today in Otis Rush, Willie Dixon, Albert King, Muddy Waters, Little Walter, Bo Diddley, Koko Taylor, Lowell Fulson, Howlin’ Wolf, Buddy Guy, Magic Slim, Sonny Boy Williamson, Son Seals, James Cotton, Paul Butterfield, Elmore James, Jimmy Reed, Otis Spann and more!
4:00 p.m. Album of The Week: Rumors by Fleetwood Mac
Our second airing of this great power pop album by Fleetwood Mac is the one break from blues programming today.
7:00 p.m. Gregg Allman Live at The House of Blues, New Orleans, LA, December 31, 2012
We close out our blues programming with this fine 2012 New Years Eve Gregg Allman show at the New Orleans House of Blues. I’ve visited this venue several times. Don’t know if it’s the same now as it was the last time I was there in 2014, but it featured Fats Domino’s piano. Great space.
We’ve always got a full house on Tuesday Bluesday, and I’m sure it’ll be the same today. Don’t miss it. It only comes once a week! We’re on 24/7 and we’re totally free of charge, folks. What more could you possibly ask for? Oh, right, no commercial advertising to interrupt the mood and no chatty DJ’s to mess up the vibe. Get on it.
