Good Morning, Musicologists. It’s a great menu today here in The Mermaid Lounge, where music is the drug, and we’ve got something for everyone.
Here’s today’s line-up:
11:00 a.m. Warren Zevon Live at Club Metro, Boston, Massachusetts, September 29, 1982 NEW!
I did not catch this particular show, but I had the pleasure of seeing Warren Zevon live at The Berklee Performance Center around the same time. His plane was late, the show started two hours late, but he was on his game. Truly one of the most tortured souls on the planet, but one amazingly talented guy and a hell of a singer-songwriter.
3:00 p.m. Album of The Week: Saturate Before Using by Jackson Browne FINAL AIRING!
The final airing of this great album is at 3:00 p.m. today. Tomorrow when you roll out of bed, there will be a brand new selection gracing the front page of the blog.
6:00 p.m. The Soul Sisters, Volume One: Various Artists
We’ve got a little bit of soul for you today, brought to you by Aretha Franklin, The Marvelettes, The Staple Singers (featuring the great Mavis Staples), The Shirelles, Barbara Lewis, Little Eva, Fontella Bass, Gladys Knight & The Pips, Kim Weston, Carla Thomas, and many more!
10:00 p,m. Live Dead! The Grateful Dead Live at Memorial Coliseum, Sacramento, California, August 12, 1972 NEW!
Another new performance from the road by the world’s premier jam band! Another one of thousands of Grateful Dead performances captured for music history.
Tune us in. It’s Saturday, the first official full day of the weekend. This is the place to be!
