It’s Tuesday Bluesday and We’ve Got Some ‘live’ Blues Project, ‘live’ Gov’t Mule, and The Stones With The AOW, August 9, 2022

Good Morning, Bluesologists! Welcome back to another Tuesday Bluesday here in The Mermaid Lounge, where all musical things are possible. We’ve got some great stuff today!

Here’s your Tuesday Bluesday lineup:

11:00 a.m. The Blues Project Live at The Cafe Au Go Go, New York, NY, November 24-27, 1965

This is some vintage Blues Project here, recorded during a five-night residency back in 1965, when the rock music world was still fairly new. A classic band in a very classic venue.

3:00 p.m. Album of The Week: Aftermath by The Rolling Stones

Our Album of The Week is back for a second spin. Technically, the Stones began moving out of their blues comfort zone on this one, their first album of complete Jagger-Richards compositions. It’s a beauty.

7:00 p.m. Gov’t Mule Live at Roseland Ballroom, New York, October 22, 1996 NEW!

This is a relatively short live stint for these guys, one of the great jam bands in the fine tradition of The Dead, but it’s a good one. And we’ve got more where this came from cued up for the future.

Tuesday Bluesday is always a good day here in The Mermaid Lounge. We are always on the hunt for old ‘found’ stuff and we’ve got some on tap as we upgrade our library for the fall months. Give us a spin, folks. We are 100% free with no surprises and no strings. We also never ask for your personal information because we are not going to sell you anything. We also do not accept advertising. Just do it.

It’s Tuesday Bluesday With The Blues Project and B.B. King On Tap, March 15, 2022

Good Morning, Bluesologists! We’ve got another Tuesday Bluesday on tap here in The Mermaid Lounge and we’ve got some great live music from The Blues Project, and B.B. King In the Spotlight a bit later!

B.B. King will close out our blues programming for the day a bit later!

Here’s your Tuesday Bluesday programming:

11:00 a.m. The Blues Project, Recorded Live at The Matrix Club, San Francisco, CA, September 7-15, 1966

The Blues Project did a one-week residency at the fabled Matrix Club in San Francisco in September of 1966, which was recorded and made an unofficial release. People often ask who was in The Blues Project, so here we go: Bass/Flute-Andy Kulberg, Drums-Roy Blumenfeld, Lead Guitar-Danny Kalb, Organ-Al Kooper, Rhythm Guitar-Steve Katz.

3:00 p.m. Album of The Week: The Traveling Wilburys, Volume 3

Back for the second airing of this great album by this great supergroup. Hands down, every time a poll is taken, The Wilburys ride the top of the “Best Supergroup” list. As one music critic said, The Traveling Wilburys are the only supergroup worthy of being called either a group or super. Or something to that effect. And I confess I rarely put much stock in music critics. But this time I agree.

7:00 p.m. In the Spotlight: The Music of B. B. King

We close out our Tuesday Bluesday programming with the master of da blues and his best friend, Lucille. And that’s the way it should be.

So, kids. If you’re a blues lover, this is always a good day to have your first experience with us. Know what I mean? Because not only do we give you the blues, but before, in between, and after you get our wide Open Stream 24/7. And we won’t cost you a cent. Honest.

Welcome to Tuesday Bluesday With The Blues Project, The Rolling Stones ‘Live’ at The Checkerboard Lounge With Muddy Waters, and Our Album of The Week, December 28, 2021

Happy Tuesday, Bluesologists! We’ve got a couple of ‘live’ blues entries today sandwiched around our Album of The Week. Check it out below!

Here’s your Tuesday Bluesday line-up:

11:00 a.m. The Blues Project: Reunion in Central Park, NY, June 24, 1973 NEW!

The original members of The Blues Project reunited as part of the Schaefer Music Festival in Central Park in 1973 and we’ve got their live performance here for you today. The Schaefer Music Festival was a “thing” back in the day. I believe they had their name on the Bicentennial Concert (Elton John, Fleetwood Mac, among others) here back in 1976 also. That one was held at…wait for it…Schaefer Stadium in Foxboro, Massachusetts. Just a bit of non-essential music history.

3:00 p.m. Album of The Week: Magical Mystery Tour by The Beatles

An EP in the UK, but a full-blown album here in the U.S. as Capitol Records added their five hit releases from 1967 to create an album of timeless music. If you want to know what five tunes were added, take a look at Sunday’s blog entry, or click on the album image in the right-hand sidebar for all the details on the album!

7:00 p.m. Muddy Waters & The Rolling Stones, Live from The Checkerboard Lounge, Chicago, IL, November 22, 1981

The Stones and Muddy Waters join forces to bring you some great blues classics, like Baby Please Don’t Go, Got My Mojo Workin’, Hoochie Coochie Man and more live from The Checkerboard Lounge. You can get all the details right here about who played in the band, and who sat in, and other songs in their set.

We’re up and running this morning and have some new locations to report, like Indonesia, Iceland, and Finland to go along with Germany, Norway, Spain, Portugal, Italy, Greece, Russian Federation, the UK, Ireland, and Texas. Yes. Texas. Join the party.

It’s Tuesday Bluesday and We’ve Got The Blues Project, John Mayall With Our AOW, and Stevie Ray Vaughan, June 22, 2021

Gooooood Morning, Bluesologists! It’s another fine Tuesday Bluesday here in The Mermaid Lounge, and we’ve got the full magilla here for you today sprinkled in between all that great Open Stream!

Here’s today’s programming:

11:00 a.m. The Blues Project Live at The Matrix Club, San Francisco, September 1966

We’ve got The Blues Project recorded live between September 7-15 during an extended stint at The Matrix Club in San Francisco in 1966.

3:00 p.m. Album of The Week: Blues From Laurel Canyon by John Mayall

This is the second airing of this week’s selection (released in 1968), recorded just after the demise of John Mayall’s Bluesbreakers. This album adds to the Laurel Canyon musical legacy.

7:00 p.m. In The Spotlight: The Music of Stevie Ray Vaughan

What would Tuesday Bluesday be without Stevie Ray Vaughan? This playlist covers his career as a solo artist as well as his time with Double Trouble, and also includes both studio and live selections.

Great day to tune us in. (Don’t I say that every damned day?) But hey, I’m not lying. We’re totally free, uninterrupted by commercial endeavors, and we’re not going to ask you for any personal information. We don’t require a mandatory paid subscription. This is all about the music.

Here’s today’s line-up:

11:00 a.m. The Blues Project Live at The Matrix Club, San Francisco, September 1966 NEW!

The Blues Project formed in New York’s Greenwich Village in 1965, and consisted of Al Kooper (keyboards and vocals), Roy Blumenfeld (drums), Danny Kalb (guitar and vocals), Steve Katz (guitar and vocals), and Andy Kulberg (bass and flute). They were short-timers, lasting only two years, but they were very good. Al Kooper and Steve Katz moved on to form Blood, Sweat & Tears after their break up.

The second airing of this week’s featured album by 19-year-old Joan Baez.

7:00 p.m. Stevie Ray Vaughan Live at The Austin Opera House, Texas, April 15, 1984

I was feeling the need to get Stevie Ray Vaughan back into the mix here on a Tuesday Bluesday, and we have him live from the Austin Opera House. Light the fire and put your feet up.

We are back in retail hell today, but we certainly hope we’ve left you in good hands. Remember, we’re free. We don’t ask you for a thing. Tune us in and see for yourself.
