Good Morning, Ungovernables! Without really planning this, we have a total Tuesday Bluesday today. If you don’t know the music of Taj Mahal, you have no idea what you’re missing. This would be a good day to find out.
Here’s your Tuesday Bluesday line-up:
11:00 a.m. Tuesday Bluesday With the Allman Brothers Band, Recorded Live at A & R Studios NEW!
On August 26, 1971, the legendary Allman Brothers Band hung out at A & R Studios in New York and delivered some great music. We’ve got it here for you in The Mermaid Lounge.
4:00 p.m. Album of The Week: Mojo by Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers
This album is the Heartbreakers’ ode to the blues. Tom Petty once said he envisioned all of them sitting in chairs playing and singing the blues together when they got really old. It’s a shame we will never have that experience now.
7:00 p.m. In the Spotlight: The Music of Taj Mahal
Taj Mahal (born May 17, 1942) is the stage and recording name of singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and accomplished bluesman, Henry Saint Clair Fredericks. I have bumped into several people who don’t know who Taj Mahal is, and I actually feel sorry for them. Mahal has successfully married traditional blues with influences like Cajun, Caribbean rhythms, Latin, reggae, R & B, gospel, and calypso. He’s an amazing gift to music.
Tuesday Bluesday is always a great day to join the ranks here at #BecomeUngovernable Radio. No commercials, politicians, incessant talking, or begging for money. We are totally free and outside the system. We’re right up your alley unless, of course, you prefer to pay through the nose for your music.
