Chicago “Live” at Tanglewood and Joni Mitchell “Live” in Cambridge For a New England Feel, and We Feature Two Albums Today, Tuesday, March 10, 2020

Good Morning, Ungovernables! Most of the time the way I choose stuff is serendipity. So it was this morning when I made these selections. I just realized both live performances were in Massachusetts, my home state.

Chicago-resize

Here’s Tuesday’s line-up:

Chicago Live at Tanglewood, Lenox, MA (1970)  NEW!

Undoubtedly, one of my favorite bands. That is, when Chicago was Terry Kath’s band, that breezy, innovative jazzy rock band. By the way, Terry Kath was a monster on that guitar. I’m not a fan of the Peter Cetera Chicago of the born-again elevator music rock genre. But this iteration of Chicago? Wow. They were awesome.

2:00 p.m.      Pink Floyd: Dark Side of the Moon

This album was released on this day in 1973, and proceeded to spend 741 weeks on the Billboard charts before falling off in 1988. In 1998, it was certified 15-times platinum, which means it sold 15 million copies. Although this was just our Album of the Week in January, we feel the need to pay it the respect it deserves on this anniversary.

5:00 p.m.      Joni Mitchell Live at Club 47, Cambridge, MA

Joni Mitchell wasn’t the only one to play here early on. Both Linda Ronstadt and Bonnie Raitt did also. By the time I was old enough to visit, it was called Passim’s. It was on a cold, snowy night that my friends and I went in for a drink and discovered Guy Clark. A great venue.

9:00 p.m.      Album of the Week: Blind Faith, by Blind Faith

The only album Blind Faith ever made is our actual Album of the Week this week.

Feed your ungovernable side. Tune us in.
