The Girls Take The Stage Today, Chicago “Live” at Tanglewood, and Neil Young’s 40th Studio Release is Our Album of The Week, Sunday, July 5, 2020

Good Morning, Ungovernables! How is your July 4 hangover? Well, some of our ‘hangovers’ are different from others. But we here at The Mermaid Lounge have the universal antidote. It’s called great music.

Here’s your Sunday Funday line-up:

11:00 a.m.   Album of The Week: Homegrown by Neil Young     NEW!

Neil Young’s 40th studio release is our Album of the Week. Homegrown was actually recorded between June 1974 and January 1975, but the album was shelved by Young in favor of Tonight’s The Night. Young finally released this on June 19 of this year.

3:00 p.m.    The All-Girl Revue: Various Artists

We have four of these playlists now, but this was the first we ever put together. We have Linda Ronstadt, Patti Smith, Janis Joplin, Carly Simon, Laura Nyro, Aretha Franklin, and many more.

8:00 p.m.    Chicago Live at Tanglewood, Lenox, MA, July 21, 1970

Chicago was one of the most adventurous, musically brilliant bands on the scene until Terry Kath’s unfortunate death. (At that point, Peter Cetera took over and turned it into fucking ballad-driven elevator music with a sometimes religious tinge.) I couldn’t find this concert on Chicago’s concert history list, and that’s because they were not Bill Graham’s first choice for his Fillmore at Tanglewood series. Neither Joe Cocker nor Jimi Hendrix could make the date, so it went to Chicago and, holy shit,did they ever deliver.

It’s Sunday; a day of rest. Kick back and tune us in. You will not regret it. I promise.
