Good Morning, Music Lovers. We’ve got some great music lined up for the day, including the original All-Girl Revue.
Here’s today’s line-up:
11:00 a.m. Album of The Week: Mystery Girl by Roy Orbison
Orbison’s 22nd album was recorded just prior to his untimely death at the age of 52, and released posthumously. This is the deluxe edition.
3:00 p.m. The Original All-Girl Revue: Various Artists
This is the very first all-female playlist we ever put together, featuring Linda Ronstadt, Joni Mitchell, Aretha Franklin, Joan Baez, Fontella Bass, Carole King, Ann Peebles, and Janis Joplin, among others.
7:00 p.m. The Beach Boys: The Smile Sessions
A collection of recordings from the band’s abandoned album, Smile, recorded between 1966 and 1967. This is just a selection of those recordings, not the entire set.
Tune in. Turn on. Drop out. Someone famous once said that. I consider it sage advice at this time in our history. We’re waiting for you to join us here.
Good Morning, Ungovernables! Welcome to day whatever-the-fuck-it-is of our discontent. While we’re all waiting for you to rise up, we’ll try to make life a bit more bearable.
Here’s your line-up for Thursday:
12:00 p.m. Janis Joplin Live at Winterland 1968
This may seem like a morbid discussion, but a number of musicians have died in their 27th year. Kurt Cobain. Robert Johnson. Amy Winehouse. But three of the most famous? Janis Joplin. Jimi Hendrix. Jim Morrison. All dead at 27. All members of the ’27 Club.’
4:00 p.m. Album of the Week: Sargeant Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band by The Beatles
This is arguably the greatest album of all time. Not only was the music brilliant, but so was the album packaging. It was the first album to open like a book, and the first to feature the lyrics printed on the cover. The front cover photograph remains a conversation piece to this day.
7:00 p.m. The Beach Boys: The Smile Sessions NEW!
It is said that Brian Wilson was the creative force behind The Beach Boys. Artists from Linda Ronstadt to Paul McCartney consider him a musical genius, but all of the members conributed to the whole. These sessions prove that The Beach Boys weren’t just another ‘surf music’ band (although they were pretty damned good at that too).
We’re here. We’re free. We ask no information. We just deliver the goods.
