Good Morning, Music Lovers! Well, we’ve finally made good on our threat to upgrade and update the former ‘Echoes From The Canyon’ playlist. We think you’re going to like it and you can read more below.
Here’s today’s musical menagerie:
11:00 a.m. Music From Laurel Canyon: Various Artists UPDATED AND UPGRADED!
Laurel Canyon and the cross pollination it inspired among musical friends was magical, but it didn’t end with the 60’s. There was a second wave of people who moved in and took part in that magic, including Bonnie Raitt, Jackson Browne, Linda Ronstadt, J.D. Souther, Carole King, James Taylor and others. They join The Doors, Canned Heat, The Byrds, Joni Mitchell, The Mamas & The Papas and others from the first wave.
We’ve updated this playlist to over four hours of great music, officially making it our newest extended player. Oh yeah, we’ve also changed the name.
7:00 p.m. In The Spotlight: The Music of Paul Simon
We haven’t heard from this guy for a while, so it’s about time. This playlist features his music from his partnership with Art Garfunkel to his solo work.
It’s another crazy hot and ugly weather day here in the Boston area. It has been this way most of the summer. We’rehoping it comes to an end outside, but we hope to keep it hot in The Mermaid Lounge (music-wise, that is) as we move into fall with some new stuff. In the meantime, it’s summertime and the livin’ is easy, as they say. Tune us in.
Good Morning, Music Historians everywhere! Today we have an airing of our newly-expanded Echoes From The Canyon playlist (and it will go through another update soon) for your listening pleasure.
Here’s today’s line-up:
11:00 a.m. Echoes From The Canyon: Various Artists UPDATED!
There’s no question that Laurel Canyon was the epicenter of the musical revolution of the 60’s and 70’s. Jakob Dylan and Tom Petty knew it. The both drew musical inspiration from those bands.
All of these great musicians lived within walking distance of each other. Mama Cass invited people over to jam and have lunch (she also never cleaned her house), Jackson Browne lived in a basement under Don Henley, Graham Nash wrote Our House in a tiny house in Laurel, everyone loved partying with The Monkees, and John Mayall’s first album after the Bluesbreakers broke up was BluesFrom Laurel Canyon.
You’ll hear all of the above and many more in our newly updated playlist (which will also go through another update soon, by the way). Enjoy.
7:00 p.m. Album of The Week: In the Midnight Hour & Other Hits by Wilson Pickett
We’re winding down with this week’s selection. The final airing of this great album will be on Saturday.
