We’re at Midweek With Some New Creedence, Bonnie Raitt & Friends Live, and Volume Two of Our Summer of Love, June 23, 2021

Good Morning, Musicologists! We’re already at midweek and we’ve got some great music for you here today, including some live Creedence at The Fillmore!

We jump into the programming with CCR Live at The Fillmore!

Here’s your midweek line-up:

11:00 a.m. Creedence Clearwater Revival Live at The Fillmore, San Francisco, July 4, 1971 NEW!

Today we have the first live playlist from one of our absolute favorite bands here in The Mermaid Lounge, Creedence Clearwater Revival. Creedence pumped out some of the best rock n’ roll swamp music on the planet, sounding just like they were born on the bayou, even though they were four guys from Berkeley, California. This concert is another that was broadcast on KSAN.

3:00 p.m. Bonnie Raitt & Friends Live From Ultrasonic Studios, New York, October 17, 1972

Bonnie Raitt gets together with Lowell George of Little Feat, her bassist, Freebo, and bluesman John Hammond, for a little party at Ultrasonic Studios curated and broadcast by influential rock radio station WLIR-FM on Long Island. A great version of Blind Faith’s Can’t Find My Way Home is included.

7:00 p.m. The Summer of Love, Volume Two: Various Artists

We skipped this volume yesterday because it was Tuesday Bluesday, but we have volume two here for you today, with music from The Jefferson Airplane, Eric Burdon & The Animals, Manfred Mann, Jimi Hendrix, Bobbie Gentry, The Turtles, The Byrds, Stevie Wonder, The Rascals and more!

We’re kicking some ass today here in The Mermaid Lounge and would like you to tune us in. Join your friends online today from The Faroe Islands, Sweden, Spain, The Russian Federation, France, Germany (always), Italy and Portugal. All you need is a computer tab.

It’s Tuesday Bluesday With Bonnie Raitt & Friends, Stevie Ray Vaughan & Albert King; and REVOLVER Returns as Our AOW on, September 1, 2020

Good Morning, Ungovernables! It’s a brand new season as we roll into September! Even better, we kick it off with Tuesday Bluesday!

Stevie Ray Vaughan & Albert King

Here is your Tuesday Bluesday line-up:

11:00 a.m.   Tuesday Bluesday! Bonnie Raitt, Lowell George, John Hammond & Freebo, Live at Ultrasonic Studios, October 17, 1972   NEW!

Some of the best stuff we have is archival discoveries and, while they may not exactly be technically perfect, it doesn’t matter. A young Bonnie Raitt is hanging out with some friends here an they are conducting a textbook super session. Her youthful versions of Jackson Browne’s Under the Falling Sky and Chris Smither’s Love Me Like a Man are really great,  but her version of Blind Faith’s Can’t Find My Way Home is the most amazing. 

When you toss in Lowell George, the grand master of Little Feat, John Hammond and Freebo, you’ve got a super group. Who is Freebo? His real name is Daniel Friedberg, and he’s legend in my generation, a super studio musician who has spent a lot of time supporting Bonnie Raitt. Freebo has also played with Maria Muldaur, Ringo Starr, Dr. John, Aaron Neville, John Mayall and many other musicians. 

3:00 p.m.     Album of the Week: Revolver by The Beatles

The Revolver album signaled what was to come from the Beatles. It was a giant LEAP forward for the band in so many areas. This album is widely considered the most influential album in modern music. Find out why by tuning in.

7:00 p.m.     Albert King & Stevie Ray Vaughan: In Session,  Recorded Live at CHCH-TV on December 6, 1983

Two blues masters were recorded live at CHCH-TV studios in Hamilton, Ontario, when SRV was 29 years old and King was 60. You can read more about this legendary blues session right here.

Come on, people, it’s a great time to tune us in. We’re here. We’re free. We ask for nada, and we operate totally outside the system. Oh, yeah, we also play great music — rotating more than 25,000 songs — on a 24-hour basis. Non-stop musical nirvana.
