Good Morning, Bluesologists! Here we are again in the midst of another Tuesday Bluesday! Today we take a trip to Chicago for some blues.
Here’s today’s musical landscape:
11:00 a.m. The Best of Chicago Blues: Various Artists
We travel to Chicago for a dose of the blues with Otis Rush, Willie Dixon, Albert King, Muddy Waters, Little Walter, Bo Diddley, Koko Taylor, Lowell Fulson, Howlin’ Wolf, Buddy Guy, Magic Slim, Son Seals, Sonny Boy Williamson, James Cotton, Paul Butterfield, Elmore James, Jimmy Reed, Otis Spann and more!
7:00 p.m. Johnny Winter Live at The Bottom Line, New York City, NY, September 5, 1978
One of the best bluesmen of all time here, albeit a bit overlooked at times. Winter was not only a great blues guitarist and singer, known for his high-energy blues albums and live performances in the late 60s and 70s, but he also produced three Grammy Award-winning albums for the great Muddy Waters.
9:00 p.m. Album of The Week: Electric Music for The Mind and Body, Country Joe & The Fish
We close out the day’s programming outside the realm of the blues with one of the first psychedelic albums to come out of San Francisco.
