Good Morning, Bluesologists! We’re heading down to Louisiana today for some blues, and we bring the second airing of our Album of The Week by Valerie Carter.
Here’s your Tuesday Bluesday line-up:
11:00 a.m. The Best of Louisiana Blues, Volume One: Various Artists
There’s nothing like the Louisiana blues. You’ll hear Clarence Frogman Henry, Little Walter, Bobby Charles, Muddy Waters, Big Bill Broonzy, Slim Harpo, Warren Storm, and Louisiana Red in this set. We have part two this evening.
3:00 p.m. Album of The Week: Just A Stones Throw Away by Valerie Carter
We think this week’s Album of The Week fits in just fine on this Tuesday Bluesday because Valerie Carter’s first solo album is just a little bit of everything, including just a bit bluesy. She’s got the perfect voice for it.
7:00 p.m. The Best of Louisiana Blues, Volume Two: Various Artists
You’ll hear more of Clarence Frogman Henry, Slim Harpo, and Muddy Waters in our second set, but you’ll also hear Smiley Lewis, The Big Bopper, Earl King, Cookie & The Cupcakes, Rod Bernard, Frankie Ford, Joe Jones, and Big Boy Myles.
We’re happy to have you with us on this fine Tuesday Bluesday. We’re gearing up for Blues Week (date still TBD) and, as always, we’re on the hunt for some stuff from the vault. This would be a good day to start listening to us. Don’t you agree?
