Tuesday Bluesday with Stevie Ray Vaughan & Bonnie Raitt, Shawn Colvin in The Spotlight, & Our Album of The Week, August 4, 2020

Good Morning, Ungovernables! We’ve got another great line-up on Tuesday Bluesday, including SRV and Bonnie Raitt at the 1985 Bumbershoot Arts Festival.

Stevie Ray Vaughan & Bonnie Raitt-2-

Here’s your Tuesday Bluesday line-up:

12:00 p.m.   It’s Tuesday Bluesday! Stevie Ray Vaughan & Double Trouble, Featuring Bonnie Raitt, The Bumbershoot Arts Festival, 1985   NEW BOOTLEG!

Is there a better pairing when it comes to the blues? I don’t particularly see how. Bonnie joins SRV on stage toward the end of the show for a couple of hot numbers. It’s worth the wait.

3:00 p.m.    Album of the Week: All Things Must Pass by George Harrison

Tune us in for the expanded version of this epic masterpiece including some great jams.

7:00 p.m.    In The Spotlight: The Music of Shawn Colvin

Shawn Colvin is one of those singer-songwriters who should be bigger than she is. Her personal demons interfered with her success early on. Although she has been a solo performer since the seventies, Colvin is best recognized for her 1997 Grammy award-winner, Sunny Came Home.

What the hell are you up to today? Listen, it’s going to pour this afternoon. Why not tune us in?

Here’s your Sunday Funday line-up:

11:00 a.m.   Album of The Week: All Things Must Pass by George Harrison   NEW!

George Harrison’s first solo effort after the break-up of The Beatles can certainly be considered a tour de force, at least from my perspective here in The Mermaid Lounge. We’re giving you the expanded version here with the jams. We’ve put those at the end of the actual album.

4:00 p.m.    Bob Dylan & Johnny Cash: Nashville 1969

Back during the recording of Dylan’s masterpiece, Nashville Skyline, he teamed up with Johnny Cash to record a bunch of songs. Only one, Girl From the North Country, made it on to the album. The rest are right here, and you should avail yourself of them.

7:00 p.m.    Bonnie Raitt Live at The Troubadour, February 15, 1972

The Troubadour. The musical incubator for so many great artists — real artists. Bonnie Raitt is one of them. Enjoy.

Come on. Tune us in. It’s Sunday. A day of rest, people. All you need is a fucking browser tab and the link below. Nothing more will be asked or required.

Under the Influence, Bonnie Raitt Live in Oakland, Bob Dylan Live at Budokan & Our New Album of the Week, Sunday, January 26, 2020

Good Morning, Ungovernables! We’ve got some Sunday funday playlists to day, including some great live entries from Bonnie Raitt and Bob Dylan/

Bonnie Raitt-1

11:00 a.m.      Album of the Week: It’s a Good Night for Singin’, Jerry Jeff Walker

Jerry Jeff Walker is an American country music singer and songwriter, best known for writing Mr. Bojangles, but he has had a long and productive career. It’s a Good Night for Singin’ is probably his finest album (in my humble opinion), and Very Short Time is just a great little song that is impossible to dismiss.

True story, and my friend George who is out here from Palm Springs was actually with me that night. We saw Little Feat at the Harvard Square Theater. I can’t even remember when it was, but it was a loooong time ago. Jerry Jeff Walker was the opening act, and he did not disappoint. He was a blast. It was truly one of the best concerts I’ve seen in my life and, yes, we were probably wasted.

Life goes on.

2:00 p.m.       Under the Influence: Various Artists

You know how those music types are. They’re always under the influence. Some is legal. Some is not.

5:00 p.m.       Bonnie Raitt Live at The Oakland Coliseum (1989)

9:00 p.m.       Bob Dylan Live at Budokan (1979)

Roll yourself a fatty and tune us in. No, seriously.
