Good Morning, Ungovernables! It’s Tuesday Bluesday once again, and we’ve got The Yardbirds on tap. Be sure to join us!
Here’s your Tuesday Bluesday line-up:
12:00 p.m. Tuesday Bluesday! The Yardbirds: The BBC Sessions 1965-1968 NEW!
The Yardbirds are a British blues-rock band formed in London in May of 1963. The original lineup featured vocalist and harmonica player Keith Relf, drummer Jim McCarty, rhythm guitarist/bassist Chris Dreja and bassist/producer Paul Samwell-Smith. Throughout the years, other band members have come and gone.
During the BBC Sessions featured in this playlist, Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck and Jimmy Page circulated in and out of the band.
4:00 p.m. Album of the Week: On The Border by The Eagles
This was The Eagles third studio album, and they added Don Felder to go for a more rock feel than the first two albums.
6:00 p.m. In the Spotlight: Booker T. & The M.G.’s
Booker T. & The M.G.’s were a musical force in the sixties. Formed in Memphis in 1962, the band was influential in shaping the unique sound of Southern soul and Memphis soul. The original band members were Booker T. Jones (organ, piano), Steve Cropper (guitar), Lewie Steinberg (bass), and Al Jackson Jr. (drums). As the de facto house band for Stax Records, they also played for artists like Otis Redding, Sam & Dave, Albert King, Wilson Pickett, and Delaney & Bonnie.
Tune us in for a great musical feast. We’re free. All the time.
Good Morning, Ungovernables! Well, we have some great new stuff for you on this day, including the debut of Tom Petty’s solo gem, Wildflowers, as our Album of the Week.
Here’s your Sunday Funday line-up:
1:00 p.m. Album of the Week: Tom Petty’s Wildflowers NEW!
Wildflowers was the second solo studio album by Tom Petty, and it was released on November 1, 1994. In spite of Petty’s desire to break free of the constraints of the band, he used most of his compadres as session musicians. The album resulted in four single releases, the most successful of which was You Don’t Know How It Feels. The other three were It’s Good To Be King (my all-time favorite Petty song), You Wreck Me, and A Higher Place. Read more about the album and the contributors here.
4:00 p.m. The Soul Queens, Volume 1: Various Artists
Aretha Franklin, Ann Peebles, Martha & The Vandellas, The Supremes, Mary Wells, Carla Thomas, Little Eva, and more.
