It’s Clapton at Madison Square Garden, Paul Simon in The Spotlight, and Lucinda Williams’ New Album on Thursday, July 2, 2020

Good Morning, Ungovernables! This is one of those days I wish I could stay in The Mermaid Lounge and listen, but alas, retail hell calls.

Here’s today’s line-up in the lounge:

11:00 a.m.   In the Spotlight: The Music of Paul Simon

Paul Simon’s career began back in 1956 with the duo of Simon & Garfunkel, add to that his years as a solo artist, and you have a career that spans six decades. Today we put him in The Spotlight.

3:00 p.m.    Album of the Week: Good Souls Better Angels by Lucinda Williams

Lucinda Williams is known for working slowly, and maybe there’s a method to her madness. Her latest release at the ripe young age of 67 proves that there’s no age barrier to kicking ass.

7:00 p.m.    Eric Clapton Live at Madison Square Garden, New York, March 19, 2017  NEW!

Speaking of kicking ass, we have Eric Clapton live at Madison Square Garden airing for the first time today. Clapton is an official guitar god. In addition to his incredible solo career, he has loaned his considerable talents to The Yardbirds, Cream, Blind Faith, Derek & The Dominos, and John Mayall’s Bluesbreakers.

Don’t hesitate. Tune us in today. There’s nothing to “join.” There’s no need to provide a credit card number or to provide any contact information. You literally go to the link below and you’re in. We are 24/7, no commercials, no politicians, no bullshit.

It’s Tuesday Bluesday With Janis Joplin & The Kozmic Blues Band, The Doors Take The Spotlight, and Our Album of The Week, Tuesday, June 30, 2020

Good Morning, Ungovernables! It’s another Tuesday Bluesday here in The Mermaid Lounge and we have an oldie but goodie for you today.

Janis Joplin & The Kozmic Blues Band

Here’s your line-up for Tuesday:

11:00 a.m.  Tuesday Bluesday! Janis Joplin & The Kozmic Blues Band, Live in Amsterdam, April 1, 1969   NEW!

The Kozmic Blues Band was but one of the bands that Janis fronted after Big Brother & The Holding Company and before Full Tilt Boogie, as she continued her quest for the “perfect” band. There isn’t much information out there about the band, other than the members’ names. The link I provided is just about the best info you can find out there, and it’s a fan site.

3:00 p.m.     Album of the Week: Good Souls Better Angels by Lucinda Williams

The latest album from Lucinda Williams is our featured album this week. You can learn more about this album by clicking on the photo in the right sidebar on this blog.

6:00 p.m.     In the Spotlight: The Music of The Doors

Like Janis Joplin, The Doors’ leader, Jim Morrison, is one of the members of the ’27 Club’, the rockers who died in their 27th year. There are several others in this group, including Gram Parsons, Jimi Hendrix, and Brian Jones. The Doors were only a factor for four years but, in four years, they made some seriously great fucking music.

It’s time to tune us in! We’re sitting here waiting for you.

Here’s today’s line-up:

11:00 a.m.   Under the Influence: Various Artists

Since I’m starting my weekend off under the influence, I feel we all should start our day that way!

7:00 p.m.   Deb’s Stream: Absolutely The Animals

Personally, I can’t believe it took me this long to put this playlist together. The Animals are undoubtedly one of the premier bands in the history of blues rock, and Eric Burdon is one of the best singers on the planet.

This would be a great day to tune us in. Actually, any day is a great day. So, just fucking do it:
