We Give You Roomful of Blues and The Allman Brothers Band for This Windy and Rainy Tuesday Bluesday, October 26, 2021

Good Morning, Bluesologists! Another Tuesday Bluesday has rolled around and this time we’ve got Roomful of Blues In the Spotight and The Allman Brothers live at The Beacon wrapped around our Album of The Week.

Here’s your Tuesday Bluesday line-up:

11:00 a.m. In The Spotlight: Roomful of Blues

I remember going to see these guys in various venues around Cambridge, Massachusetts when I was just a young’un. This blues and swing revival band has been at this for five decades. They are no stranger to the blues circuit. If you haven’t paid much attention to them, this would be a good time.

3:00 p.m. Album of The Week: Elton John by Elton John

This is our second airing of this great Elton John album, his debut in the U.S. but his second studio album outside this country. Two of my absolute favorite Elton John songs appear on this album, Take Me To The Pilot and Your Song. There are many singers and bands whose early music I prefer to their material in later years. Elton John is one of them.

7:00 p.m. The Allman Brothers Band Play All Night: Live at The Beacon Theatre, New York (1992)

This is a great collection of live songs performed by The Brothers during their residency at The Beacon during 1992. Some “live” Allman Brothers is a great way to close out the Tuesday Bluesday programming.

Good Morning, Ungovernables! Here we are with another Tuesday Bluesday and we’ve got Roomful of Blues in The Spotlight, with the Allman Brothers Band bringing up the rear a bit later. Sandwiched in between is our Album of the Week.

Roomful of Blues

Here’s your Tuesday Bluesday line-up:

11:00 a.m.   Tuesday Bluesday With Roomful of Blues in The Spotlight!   NEW!

This is a great fucking band whose name is not on the tip of everybody’s tongue, in spite of their critically-acclaimed history and their 50-year recording career. I’ve been listening to them for a while and even saw them once. They are based in Rhode Island, and began in 1967 when guitarist Duke Robillard and pianist Al Copley formed Roomful of Blues. They have changed personnel over the years and have added horns, exploring the R & B and swing influence. Here in The Mermaid Lounge, we are now beginning to upload their catalogue. Here’s a preview.

3:00 p.m.     Album of the Week: Miles of Aisles by Joni Mitchell

A musical review of Mitchell’s tour in support of the amazing Court & Spark album. It was Joni Mitchell’s first live album, and her first tour with a backing band — Tom Scott & The L.A. Express.

7:00 p.m.    The Allman Brothers Band Live at the Atlanta International Pop Festival, July 3 & 5, 1970

It’s like a Tuesday Bluesday double feature here today in The Mermaid Lounge. We add the grand kahuna of blues here with the brothers.

Join us, people. We’re free. No personal information required. No credit card required. And that’s because we’re totally free and outside the capitalist system in all respects. What are you waiting for?
