The Women’s Week Grand Finale With New Live Ronstadt, The Original All-Girl Revue & The Final Airing of “Western Wall” on Saturday, July 25, 2020*

*Oh, yeah, we invited the Dead for their usual 10:00 p.m. appearance to move us into the new week!

 

Good Morning, Ungovernables! This is the Women’s Week Grand Finale, and we end it the way we began: New live Linda Ronstadt at The Universal Amphitheater in L.A.

photovisi-Ladies Only

Here’s today’s line-up!

11:00 a.m.   The Original All-Girl Revue!

The original is still the best. Hear Linda Ronstadt, Bonnie Raitt, Carly Simon, Carole King, Aretha Franklin, Ann Peebles, Stevie Nicks, Carlene Carter and many others!

3:00 p.m.     Album of the Week: Western Wall: The Tuscon Sessions by Linda Ronstadt & Emmylou Harris   FINAL AIRING!

Today we bid a fond farewell to this great album. Tomorrow we will have a brand new selection for you.

7:00 p.m.    Linda Ronstadt Live at the Universal Amphitheater, October 3, 1977  NEW!

I hear it when you hear it. The buzz is that it’s great sound quality even though it’s a rare recording. Right now, this is the only UA recording I can find anywhere. And anyone who is familiar with Ronstadt’s career knows that her nights at the UA numbered in the 20 range during this time.

10:00 p.m.   LIVE DEAD! The Grateful Dead Live at The Cameron Indoor Stadium, Durham, N.C., April 12, 1978   NEW!

The Dead kicks out the jams with their usual 10:00 p.m. time slot, ushering us into the new week of music with a 3+ hour set live from North Carolina.

This is a great day to join us. It’s Saturday. This isn’t rocket science. And it’s free. And it’s outside the system. Every fucking day.

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.
