It’s Sunday in The Lounge and Jackson Browne Owns Our Album of The Week. We Also Offer Up Volume 1 of Our Sixties Rotation, April 4, 2021

Good Morning, Musicologists! For those who celebrate, Happy Easter. I generally do because it’s a time when I can be with my family, and that’s what matters. It’s cultural with our family. But it is not a requirement to listen to great music!

We have five hours of uninterrupted Sixties Music today with Volume One!

Here’s today’s line-up:

11:00 a.m. Album of The Week: Saturate Before Using by Jackson Browne NEW!

Funny factoid: The album is mistakenly called Saturate Before Using because the cover design was made to look like a water bag. It was intended to be Jackson Browne. At the time of its recording Jackson did not have a record contract, then he sent a recording of Jamaica Say You Will to David Geffen and he began hunting. He started his own record label, Asylum, and signed Browne to a contract (along with many others, including Linda Ronstadt). This brilliant album is Browne’s debut, and birthed two hit singles, Doctor My Eyes and Rock Me On The Water. Jackson Browne is now considered one of the legendary singer-songwriters of his generation, residing in both the Rock n’ Roll Hall of Fame and the Songwriters Hall of Fame.

3:00 p.m. The Sixties Rotation, Volume One: Various Artists

Yes, there is a difference between volume one and volume two. This volume focuses more on the earlier part of the sixties, although there is some crossover on both and we won’t deny that. It was done purposely. On this volume you’ll hear The Beatles, Mary Wells, Del Shannon, The Searchers, Carole King, Harry Nilsson, The Dave Clark Five, Johnny Rivers, The Box Tops, Dusty Springfield, The Yardbirds, Blues Image, Jimmy Ruffin, The Supremes, The Four Tops, Marvin Gaye & Kim Weston, Simon & Garfunkel and many more. A total of 98 songs uninterrupted.

The Easter Bunny just phoned me. He’s tuning in himself today now that he’s delivered all the shit required of him. He hopes you will too.

We Kick Off March in The Mermaid Lounge With Some ‘Live’ Bonnie Raitt, Music About Luck (Good, Bad, and Dumb), and Our Psychedelic Express Playlist, on Monday, March 1, 2021

Good Morning, Musicologists! Well, they say “Beware the Ides of March,” so it’s only fitting that we kick off the month with our playlist about luck (all kinds). But it doesn’t end there. We have some live Bonnie Raitt and a little psychedelic music history.

Bonnie Raitt at the Rainbow Room in Philly is today’s live music offering.

Here’s today’s musical programming:

11:00 a.m. Bonnie Raitt, Live at The Rainbow Room, Philadelphia, PA, February 22, 1972

There’s nothing like seeing Bonnie Raitt in a small venue. One of my favorite places in the Boston area was Jonathan Swifts in Harvard Square in Cambridge, Massachusetts. It was a Friday night routine for my friends and I, and I saw Bonnie Raitt there one time. Enjoy this treat.

3:00 p.m. Deb’s Stream: Good Luck, Bad Luck, Dumb Luck, Various Artists

Luck. Some people believe in it. Some don’t. Some create their own luck. But no matter, because there are plenty of songs about it, from Cream, Alison Krauss & Union Station, John Lee Hooker, Taj Mahal, Jethro Tull, Loggins & Messina, Billy Joel, Fats Domino, Bob Dylan, Steve Winwood, The Beatles, and others. You’ll hear them today.

7:00 p.m. The Psychedelic Express: Various Artists

Did you know that scientists are exploring the use of psychedelics to treat mental illness? We used to do our own kind of research on psychedelics back in the day. So did a lot of famous musicians, and you’ll hear The Beatles, Vanilla Fudge, Donovan, Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, The Jimi Hendrix Experience, They Byrds, The Doors, The Rolling Stones, Blues Image and more!
