It’s Tuesday Bluesday With The Second Half of Our Allman Brothers Extravaganza, Stevie Ray Vaughan In the Spotlight, and Our Album of The Week Sandwich, August 31, 2021

Good Morning, Bluesologists! Welcome back to another Tuesday Bluesday here in The Mermaid Lounge. We’ve got the second half of our Allman Brothers blues extravaganza today, and some SRV a bit later.

We’ve got Stevie Ray Vaughan In the Spotlight a bit later

Here’s your Tuesday Bluesday line-up:

10:00 a.m. Martin Scorcese Presents The Blues: The Allman Brothers Band NEW!

This is the second half of what we began last week. We start an hour earlier today because it’s a bit longer than the first set. Essentially, we have round two of the brothers playing traditional blues songs. It’s a treat. Don’t miss it.

4:00 p.m. Album of The Week: Countdown to Ecstasy by Steely Dan

The second airing of this great album. We inject a bit of good old rock n’ roll (with a hint of jazz, of course) in the middle of all those blues.

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

Generations of guitar-loving kids are still discovering the magic of this guy. He has been described as a man of simple taste with impeccable style. We cover his music from both his time with Double Trouble and as a solo artist.

It goes without saying that before, in between, and after, we have open stream as determined by The Music Mermaid. She also has simple taste but impeccable style. We run 24/7 completely free of charge. All you need to do is pull up a computer tab. (Oh yeah, you can also tune us in on your phone.)

11:00 a.m. Martin Scorcese Presents The Blues: The Allman Brothers Band, Volume 1 NEW!

The second volume will be aired next Tuesday morning, if you’re making notes on your musical calendar.

3:30 p.m. Album of The Week: Goin’ Home, A Tribute To Fats Domino: Various Artists

It’s Tuesday Bluesday With Muddy Waters, The Stones, and Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers…and, Oh Yeah, Our Album of The Week, August 17, 2021

Good Morning, Bluesologists! We’ve got some great blues here for you today from TPATH, The Rolling Stones & Muddy. We’ve also got the second airing of our Album of The Week on tap. Join us.

Here’s today’s line-up:

11:00 a.m. Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers Sing The Blues

The Heartbreakers had plans to grow old together, sitting around in chairs and playing the blues. They loved the stuff. Unfortunately, the real world disturbed that vision, but they played some great blues when they were together. We are playing that today.

3:00 p.m. Album of The Week: Why Wait! by Kate Taylor

The second airing of Kate Taylor’s long-awaited, much appreciated new album. Her first in fifty years. And it was well worth the wait.

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

It was for one night only, and was the one and only time that Mick Jagger and his boys ever played with the iconic bluesman Muddy Waters. It’s one for the books.

Tune us in on this fine Tuesday Bluesday. You won’t regret it. And it won’t cost you a penny. Trust me. (You can. I’m not a politician.)

Tuesday Bluesday Brings You Peter Green’s Fleetwood Mac, Eric Clapton & B.B. King, and Our AOW, August 3, 2021

Good Morning, Bluesologists! It is, once again, Tuesday Bluesday here in The Mermaid Lounge and we have some excellent programming for you, including music from the original Fleetwood Mac.

Peter Green’s Fleetwood Mac is not today’s Fleetwood Mac. It was a blues band.

Here’s your Tuesday Bluesday line-up:

11:00 a.m. Peter Green’s Fleetwood Mac Live at The Warehouse, New Orleans, January 31-February 1, 1970

Indeed, the rumors are true: The original Fleetwood Mac wasn’t a pop-rock band. That happened with the departure of Peter Green and the addition of Buckingham/Nicks. The original Fleetwood Mac was a blues band, led by Peter Green. We have the original band live from The Warehouse in New Orleans, recorded over a two-day period.

4:00 p.m. Album of The Week: Downhill From Everywhere by Jackson Browne

The second airing of this week’s Album of The Week, which just happens to be a brand new album by singer-songwriter Jackson Browne. He has remained true to himself over five decades in the music business. His message remains the same, and he delivers it with the same passion as he always has, but this time with the perspective that time is running out. That’s why we love him here.

7:00 p.m. Eric Clapton & B.B. King: Riding With The King

Two blues masters here, and the results are totally pleasing to the ears. This is actually what we should call ‘Not Our Album of The Week’ as it was their first collaboration, released in 2000. It won the Grammy for the Best Traditional Blues Album, reached number one on Billboard’s Top Blues Albums, and was certified multi-platinum in the U.S.

As always, we’ll close by telling you it’s an excellent day to give us a listen here on #BecomeUngovernable Radio. We are totally ungovernable and outside the system. We cost you nothing. We run 24/7 uninterrupted by advertising. And we do not buy any of our music from either Amazon or Apple. Believe it or not, there are other places to buy music.

Welcome to Tuesday Bluesday! We’ve Got Tracy Nelson In the Spotlight and The Paul Butterfield Blues Band Live in Boston, Along With Our Album of The Week, July 20, 2021

We’ve got Tracy Nelson In the Spotlight today

Here’s your Tuesday Bluesday line-up:

11:00 a.m. In The Spotlight: The Music of Tracy Nelson NEW!

I have been on a quest for Tracy Nelson music for quite a while, and I’m happy to say that we’re at mission accomplished. This woman’s name should be rolling off everyone’s tongue, frankly. She has made more than twenty albums during her career. We’re happy to finally add her to the list of great ladies that we champion here in The Mermaid Lounge.

3:00 p.m. Album of The Week: CHOBA B CCCP by Paul McCartney

Another airing of this great album of oldies by the artists that invented rock n’ roll and inspired bands like The Beatles, The Stones, and even Tom Petty himself.

7:00 p.m. The Paul Butterfield Blues Band Live at The Unicorn Coffee House, Boston, MA, May 1966

A great blues band in a one of those great old (and now defunct) Boston music venues. This one puts the perfect finishing touch on today’s Tuesday Bluesday programming.

Tune us in, people. We’re free 24/7. We don’t as you to “subscribe.” We also do not require a credit card or that you provide personal information. In fact, we don’t ask you to do anything but listen.

Here’s your Tuesday Bluesday line-up:

11:00 a.m. Eric Clapton & Friends: The Crossroads Guitar Festival Revisited

We’ve got some great blues-rock lined up for you today as we play selections from Clapton’s Crossroads Guitar Festival. That’s nearly four hours of music with Eric Clapton and Sheryl Crow.

7:00 p.m. Album of The Week: Exit Wounds by The Wallflowers

Today is the second airing of the great, new Wallflowers release, Exit Wounds. This is the first Wallflowers album in ten years, and it’s not to be missed. Songwriting is in Jakob Dylan’s blood for sure.

Tuesday Bluesday is always a great day to tune us in (at least that’s what I’ve been told by our listeners). Today will be no exception! We run 24/7 absolutely free and without commercial interruption.

Stevie Ray Vaughan and The Allman Brothers Band Highlight Our Tuesday Bluesday, June 29, 2021

Good Morning, Bluesologists! It’s another Tuesday Bluesday here in The Mermaid Lounge, and we’ve got a great blues line-up in store for you. And let’s not forget the second airing of our Album of The Week.

Today’s live performance isn’t from the Orpheum in Boston, but I could not resist this photo. I was at this show! Now I am on the hunt for this live performance!

Here’s today’s line-up:

11:00 a.m. Stevie Ray Vaughan Live at The Austin Opera House, Austin, Texas, April 15, 1984

SRV was riding high at this time and it shows. Today’s performance is from the Austin Opera House, and we know you’re going to love it.

3:00 p.m. Album of The Week: Sister Kate by Kate Taylor

The second airing of Sister Kate is upon us. We understand if you lost sight of Kate Taylor in the early 70s, with both James and Livingston making records. But Sister Kate is a fine album, and Kate Taylor is a great talent in her own right.

7:00 p.m. The Allman Brothers Band Live at A & R Studios, New York, August 26, 1971

No matter what anyone tells you, The Allman Brothers Band are the granddaddys of Southern rock, and certainly the finest purveyors of blues-rock on the planet. Today we have them live at A & R Studios.

I don’t know what the weather is where you are, but outside The Mermaid Lounge it’s far too hot to venture out. Some of us have no choice, but if you do, then this is the place to be. Tune us in.
