Good Morning, Ungovernables! It’s another Tuesday Bluesday here in The Mermaid Lounge and we have an oldie but goodie for you today.
Here’s your line-up for Tuesday:
11:00 a.m. Tuesday Bluesday! Janis Joplin & The Kozmic Blues Band, Live in Amsterdam, April 1, 1969 NEW!
The Kozmic Blues Band was but one of the bands that Janis fronted after Big Brother & The Holding Company and before Full Tilt Boogie, as she continued her quest for the “perfect” band. There isn’t much information out there about the band, other than the members’ names. The link I provided is just about the best info you can find out there, and it’s a fan site.
3:00 p.m. Album of the Week: Good Souls Better Angels by Lucinda Williams
The latest album from Lucinda Williams is our featured album this week. You can learn more about this album by clicking on the photo in the right sidebar on this blog.
6:00 p.m. In the Spotlight: The Music of The Doors
Like Janis Joplin, The Doors’ leader, Jim Morrison, is one of the members of the ’27 Club’, the rockers who died in their 27th year. There are several others in this group, including Gram Parsons, Jimi Hendrix, and Brian Jones. The Doors were only a factor for four years but, in four years, they made some seriously great fucking music.
It’s time to tune us in! We’re sitting here waiting for you.
Good Morning, Ungovernables! Stevie Ray Vaughan makes his Tuesday Bluesday debut, the Airplane make a landing, and Van Morrison is in The Spotlight later.
Here’s your Tuesday Bluesday line-up:
11:00 a.m. Tuesday Bluesday: Stevie Ray Vaughan Live at The Austin Opera House, April 15, 1984 NEW!
People toss the term Guitar God around like everyone should wear it, but it is reserved for a select crew. Stevie Ray Vaughan is one of them. Beyond his obvious talent, he was a fascinating character whose full story, I confess, I did not know until after he passed. I was too busy listening to his music.
2:00 p.m. Album of the Week: Surrealistic Pillow by Jefferson Airplane
Jefferson Airplane comes in for a layover and brings this masterpiece with them.
6:00 p.m. In the Spotlight: The Music of Van “The Man” Morrison
There are few who compare with this guy’s body of work. What could be better than SRV and Van “The Man” on the same day?
Where the hell are you today? Well, you need to be right here. Just pull up a tab and click the link below. Yes, Virginia, it’s that fucking simple:

The “core” of the Jeff Beck Group was guitarist Jeff Beck, vocalist Rod Stewart (yes, that Rod Stewart), and rhythm guitarist Ronnie Wood, with the bassists and drummers changing pretty frequently. Pictured with the three core members is bassist Jet Harris.

After that, they became The Band, and the rest is musical history. The Band is Robbie Robertson, Rick Danko, Levon Helm, Richard Manuel, and Garth Hudson, and they are a force of nature.

Here’s Your Tuesday Bluesday line-up:
12:00 p.m. Alison Krauss & Union Station Live!

4:00 p.m. Tuesday Bluesday: Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers Sing the Blues
Tom Petty was serious about the blues, and his band could certainly sing and play the blues. He often said he envisioned them as old men sitting around with their guitars singing the blues.
8:00 p.m. Van Morrison: Astral Weeks Live at the Hollywood Bowl (2008) NEW!
This was the fifth live album released by Van Morrison. It was recorded on November 7 and 8, 2008, exactly forty years after the first iteration of Astral Weeks was released. Morrison produced this effort, insisting on just one rehearsal and no post-production. Essentially you hear what the audience heard the two nights it was recorded.
