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

An American Treasure, Our New Album of The Week, and The Sixties Becomes Standard Fare, Sunday, February 16, 2020

Good Morning, Ungovernables! Welcome to this totally fabulous Sunday of programming! Check those times! Nothing is as it was today!

The 1960s

Here’s your Sunday Funday line-up:

10:00 a.m.      Tom Petty: An American Treasure

The multi-faceted release engineered by Tom Petty’s family and his bandmates, Benmont Tench and Mike Campbell, was released for holiday time 2018. An American Treasure includes alternate versions of Petty standards, unheard live versions of Heartbreakers’ songs, and several never-before-released songs that make you wonder why they weren’t released. Pay particular attention to Lonesome Dave which, as it turns out, is not only my favorite of the unreleased tracks, but is also Mike Campbell’s. Thank Buddha this guy was a work-a-holic.

3:00 p.m.       Album of the Week: Band On The Run, Paul McCartney & Wings

Band On The Run was the third studio album released by Paul McCartney & Wings, and was McCartney’s fifth album since leaving the band known as The Beatles. There is no question that it is a tour de force and, given the circumstances surrounding the way it was recorded, that is a miracle.

5:00 p.m.      The Sixties on Sunday!

The Sixties becomes part of our regular rotation today, gettng air time once in the middle of every month. By the time next month rolls around, we’ll have two rotating lists.
