Dylan at Budokan, The “Let It Be” Sessions, Mudcrutch Madness & Van Morrison in the Spotlight, Friday, February 21, 2020

Good Morning, Ungovernables! It’s a fine day of programming here at The Mermaid Lounge, home of #BecomeUngovernable Radio!

59994159c5140b66aec22906195048f8

Here’s your Friday line-up:

11:00 a.m.     Bob Dylan Live at Budokan (1979)

2:00 p.m.       The Beatles’ Let It Be Sessions: Rare and Unreleased

By the time Let It Be rolled around, the good times were few and far between for The Beatles. Still, some of the old magic was there during the sessions, as you can see from today’s photo. We have about 30 session minutes in this set, followed by Let It Be…Naked, the non-Phil Spector version of Let It Be.

5:00 p.m.       Mudcrutch Madness!

There are those who will say that Mudcrutch doesn’t look a thing like Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, but I’ll argue that point. Mudcrutch looks exactly like TPHB: A bunch of friends who enjoy playing music together and just happen to be really good at it.

In this band, the band that launched The Heartbreakers, Tom Petty is the bassist. And although he fronts the band and sings many of the songs, others contribute vocally as well. The standout here is the brilliant version of Hungry No More recorded at Boston’s House of Blues in 2016, which appeared on the posthumously-released An American Treasure box set in 2018.

9:00 p.m.      In the Spotlight: The Music of Van Morrison

Good Morning, Ungovernables! Welcome to the Mermaid Lounge, where we seriously play the best music on the planet.

Beatles-i-E2-99-A5-70s-38863736-1280-800

Here’s today’s line-up:

11:00 a.m.     Album of the Week: Wanted! The Outlaws. by Waylon Jennings, Willie Nelson, Jessi Colter, and Tompall Glaser. 

This was basically a compilation album released in 1976 to capitalize on the “outlaw” country movement, which turned into one of the most popular country albums of all time, reaching no. 1 on the country charts and no. 10 on the pop charts. It was the first country album to be certified platinum (reaching sales of $1 million). The album also produced two singles, both featuring Waylon Jennings.

2:00 p.m.       Echoes From The Canyon

The fantastic music from Laurel Canyon that pioneered the California sound.

5:00 p.m.      In the Spotlight: The Music of The Beatles

9:00 p.m.     Stephen Stills: Just Roll Tape

Rumor has it that Stephen Stills sat down in a recording studio while Judy Collins was making a record, and simply turned on the tape and started making music himself.

Don’t delay. Join the music revolution today!

Big Update to #BecomeUngovernable Standard Rotation

Hello Everyone. I’m a D.J. here on #BecomeUngovernable Radio, and will be providing content to the blog at various times. I’m pleased to be able to tell you about some of the major content additions we’ve made to the standard musical rotation over the past three weeks.

We’ve added great blues artists like Slim Harpo (The King Bee of the Blues), Little Walter, and Delbert McClinton. We’ve also added plenty of Peter Green’s version of Fleetwood Mac (great blues), and John Mayall’s Blues Breakers.

Some other artists we’ve included are Sting, Manfred Mann’s Earth Band, Christine McVie (without Fleetwood Mac), Eddie Cochran, The Electric Prunes, Alison Krauss (with and without Union Station), Bo Diddly, and The Blues Brothers.

We’ve also bolstered artists already in the rotation by adding tracks and collections, including The Rolling Stones, The Beatles, Dusty Springfield, Dr. John, Bruce Hornsby, The Grateful Dead, and Ry Cooder.

There’s also a great new flavor of New Orleans “local” bands, including The Daywalkers, Chance Bushman & Friends, and Dr. Saxtrum. We hope you’ll enjoy that.

We’ll keep you posted as more are added!
