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 Here With Roomful of Blues, Tedeschi Trucks, and Dr. John With Our AOW, August 2, 2022

Good Morning, Bluesday Listeners! We’ve got some great music lined up for you today with the only break in the Blues being Dr. John’s Album of the Week, which happens to be New Orleans R & B. You can’t go wrong here.

We have two BIG bad-ass blues acts up for you today with Tedeschi Trucks Band and Roomful of Blues!

Here’s your Bluesday lineup:

11:00 a.m. In The Spotlight: The Music of Roomful of Blues

This big-sound blues swing band has been at it for more than half a century now. I remember going to these great small local venues when I was young to see these guys perform. I can’t imagine you haven’t heard of them but, if that’s the case, you should tune us in at 11:00 a.m. EST for this one.

3:00 p.m. Album of The Week: Creole Moon by Dr. John

This is the second airing of Creole Moon and, while it is Tuesday Bluesday, we contend that this qualifies. It qualifies because Dr. John returns to his New Orleans Rhythm & BLUES roots with this effort.

7:00 p.m. Tedeschi Trucks Band Live at Red Rocks Amphitheater, Morrison, CO, August 30, 2012

Here we have the biggest, baddest blues-rock band on the planet with the best damned guitarist of his generation in Derek Trucks. Let’s not forget Susan Tedeschi, however. She’s the other anchor of this great band. They have long been known as a great stage band, but they established themselves as a great album band with Revelator.

Yes, folks. It’s a fine Tuesday Bluesday here. This is always a high turnout day for listeners and it’s proving to be that again. We’re totally free of charge, and there are no surprises and no strings. We don’t even ask for your credit card or require you to “sign up” to listen. Just pull up a tab and tune in, turn on, drop out.

It’s Tuesday Bluesday and We’ve Got Stevie Ray Vaughan, The Heartbreakers, and Ronstadt On Tap, July 19, 2022

Good Morning, Bluesologists! We’ve got some good stuff on tap for this Tuesday Bluesday, including a visit from one of our House Bands later on. Read on for all the details!

It’s Tuesday Bluesday here in The Mermaid Lounge!

Here’s your Tuesday Bluesday line-up:

10:00 a.m. Stevie Ray Vaughan & Double Trouble Live at Carnegie Hall, New York, October 4, 1984

We’ve got SRV in the house to kick off the Tuesday Bluesday activities. This time around we’ve got a live performance from Carnegie Hall with his band, Double Trouble.

3:00 p.m. Album of The Week: Hasten Down The Wind by Linda Ronstadt

The only break in the blues programming is for this great album. Although, technically, Ronstadt pays homage to the blues genre with her amazing version of the great Tracy Nelson’s Down So Low. Spectacular.

7:00 p.m. Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers Sing The Blues

It’s no secret that Tom Petty had a vision of he and his bandmates growing old together sitting around on chairs singing the blues. He said that often, and his love for the blues showed on many albums and in many live performances where he would spontaneously add blues songs to a set list. The album Mojo was a tribute to the blues. And finally, if you listen to Tom Petty Radio, you’ll know he was also a DJ on the Buried Treasure show which featured the blues quite frequently. But the ultimate proof of The Heartbreakers’ passion for the blues is to listen to them sing the blues. So, here you have it.

Tuesday is always a good day to tune us in. Today, we’ve already got folks on from Romania, Russian Federation, Australia, the UK, France, Spain, Greece, The Netherlands, Switzerland, Portugal, and points beyond. All you need is a computer tab. We do the rest. Your money is no good here.

We Interrupt Our Programming to Bring You Tuesday Bluesday With Some ‘Live’ Janis Joplin and Johnny Winter, July 5, 2022

Good Morning, Bluesologists! It’s another Tuesday Bluesday as we give you a couple of great ‘live’ performances, one from Janis and the other from Johnny Winter. In between, we sneak in our AOW.

Here’s your Tuesday Bluesday lineup:

11:00 a.m. Janis Joplin Live at Winterland, San Francisco, CA, April 12, 1968

We’ve got early Janis here for you today as she belts out the blues from a legendary stage. She was one of the greatest as she easily walked the line between blues and rock.

3:00 p.m. Album of The Week: The Royal Scam by Steely Dan

It’s our second airing of this great album. No matter how many albums they made, the one thing you can be sure of is that you instantly recognize more than just the ‘hits.’ That’s the sign of greatness in our book.

7:00 p.m. Johnny Winter Live at Parker’s Place, Seattle, WA, March 9, 1985 NEW!

I’ve been on the hunt for some new ‘live’ music to add to the playlist collection, and I found this gem from Johnny Winter, one of the greatest blues guitarists of all time. Johnny was no slouch at the mike either. He was an excellent blues belter.

Tune us in as we pay homage to the blues this, and every, Tuesday here in The Mermaid Lounge. You simply cannot go wrong. We are totally free. Your money is no good here. And we are also free of advertising. We don’t accept any. In short, it’s all music all the time.

Welcome to Tuesday Bluesday and Five Hours of Uninterrupted Blues, Paul Butterfield Live at The Fillmore, and Our AOW, June 28, 2022

Good Morning, Bluesologists! Today is Tuesday Bluesday and we have our ‘Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed, Something Blues’ EP and some live Paul Butterfield later.

Starts at 10:00 a.m today!

4:00 p.m. Album of The Week: American Beauty by The Grateful Dead

Our only break in the blues programming today comes with our Album of The Week by The Dead.

7:00 p.m. The Paul Butterfield Blues Band Live at The Fillmore West, San Francisco, CA, October 14, 1966 NEW!

We go back in the Wayback Machine for this gem. We have some vintage Paul Butterfield from 1966. A legendary blues band in a legendary venue for sure.

Got the blues? Well, get them here. The blues of the best kind, of course. We’re totally free every single day of the week, not just when we’re doing a “membership” drive. The price of membership here is using your tab and the button below. Your money is no good here.

It’s Another Tuesday Bluesday and We’ve Got Koko Taylor In the Spotlight, and Some Live Buddy Guy with Stevie Ray Vaughan Later, On this First Day of Summer, June 21, 2022

Good Morning, Bluesologists! We’re back for another Tuesday Bluesday and we have some new blues today as we add the late, great Koko Taylor to our Spotlight list. And later it’s two great blues guitarists together live.

Today we put the great Koko Taylor In the Spotlight!

Here’s your Tuesday Bluesday lineup:

11:00 a.m. In the Spotlight: The Music of Koko Taylor NEW!

There’s no doubt about it: Koko Taylor is a blues powerhouse whose musical style encompassed Chicago blues, electric blues, rhythm & blues, and soul blues. She’s often called the Queen of The Blues, just as Aretha is called The Queen of Soul and Irma Thomas is called The Soul Queen of New Orleans. Come to think of it, that would make a fucking great playlist. But I digress because today, we put Koko Taylor In the Spotlight where she belongs.

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

Our only break in our blues programming today is to hear Sir Paul’s iconic 1970 debut album. The simple beginnings of an amazing post-Beatles career that’s still going strong as he turns 80 this week.

7:00 p.m. Buddy Guy & Stevie Ray Vaughan Live at The Lone Star Cafe, New York, April 14, 1986

Two blues guitar masters together is a real treat, and we close out our Tuesday Bluesday programming today with them live at the Lone Star Cafe in New York.

Tuesday Bluesday here in The Mermaid Lounge is always a great take. Make this the day to join your friends from Germany, Switzerland, Norway, The Netherlands, Portugal, Spain, South Africa, Russian Federation, Chile, Australia, Texas, New York, North Carolina, Flori-DUH and points beyond.

Welcome to Tuesday Bluesday With Gov’t Mule, Tracy Nelson & Mother Earth, and James Cotton, June 7, 2022

Good Morning, Bluesologists! We’ve got a full slate of da blues today. Even our AOW is bluesy today. Gov’t Mule has been included now in our standard rotation, and they open the day In the Spotlight!

Gov’t Mule is Warren Haynes, Matt Abst, Danny LouisĀ and Jorgen Carlsson

Here’s your Tuesday Bluesday lineup:

11:00 a.m. In the Spotlight: The Music of Gov’t Mule NEW!

We’ve featured ‘live’ Gov’t Mule on a Tuesday Bluesday not long ago, but now they’re airing it out In the Spotlight. We’ve added them to our standard rotation, and we’ve got plenty of ‘live’ mule in the hopper for the future. Does it get any better?

3:00 p.m. Album of The Week: Living With the Animals by Mother Earth

This is our second airing of this fine blues effort by the amazing Tracy Nelson and her early band, Mother Earth. Don’t miss it.

7:00 p.m. James Cotton Live at Antoine’s, New Orleans, Louisiana, July 1987

You can seek, but sometimes you simply cannot find. We’ve searched high and low to put a date on this particular James Cotton performance, but we’ve not been able to nail it down to a day. We figure July 1987 is about as close as we’re getting. Either way, we know it happened, and you will too if you tune in tonight.

It’s a great Tuesday Bluesday here in the lounge. It’s what we here call the full magilla. Before, in between and after, we’ve got our wide Open Stream to get you through life’s 24-hour onslaught. What more could you ask for. Oh, yeah, we’re totally free 24/7. No subscription required. That’s why we simply say, tune us in.

It’s Tuesday Bluesday With Live Music From the B.B. King Blues Band, Johnny Winter In The Spotlight and Our AOW, May 31, 2022

Good Morning, Bluesologists! What better way to close out the month than on a Tuesday Bluesday? The only thing possibly better is that we also have live B.B. King!

Today we’ve got B.B. King and his blues band live from Rotterdam!

Here’s your Tuesday Bluesday line-up:

11:00 a.m. The B.B. King Blues Band Live at The North Sea Jazz Festival, Rotterdam, The Netherlands, October 7, 1987 NEW!

We’ve got some brand new ‘live’ music today from the master…and, of course, his famous sidekick, Lucille. Settle in for a couple of hours of great blues.

3:00 p.m. Album of The Week: Forget About It by Alison Krauss

We take a short break in the blues proceedings for the second airing of Alison Krauss’ 1999 release here, and it’s a good one.

7:00 p.m. In the Spotlight: The Music of Johnny Winter

The blues side of the great Winter brothers. Johnny Winter was not only a great solo artist, but his guitar work was in demand by some of the greatest, including Muddy Waters. Today we put him alone In the Spotlight.

Let’s go kids! We’ve actually got The Netherlands already on board this morning, along with Spain, Portugal, Greece, France, Germany, Australia, Japan, Russian Federation, Brazil, and points beyond. Join your friends. We’re free. We’re broadcasting 24/7. And we never ask for a “subscription.”

It’s Tuesday Bluesday and We’ve Got Gunsmoke Blues, Janis Joplin Live at The Fillmore, and Valerie Carter with Our Album of The Week, May 3, 2022

Good Morning, Bluesologists! We’ve got some new-to-the-station blues for you today that revolves around a certain blues fan. We also bring you some Joplin-style blues later.

We’ve got Gunsmoke Blues today! Read about the legend below!

Here’s your Tuesday Bluesday line-up:

11:00 a.m. Gunsmoke Blues: Muddy Waters, Big Mama Thornton, Big Joe Turner, and George “Harmonica” Smith NEW!

As legend has it, blues music freak Link Wyler and some of his friends who worked on the Gunsmoke TV show were on hiatus from filming. They decided to his the road to film their favorite blues singers, who happened to be barnstorming the nation with their bands. This is the result of that music obsession.

3:00 p.m. Album of The Week: The Lost Tapes, Volume Two by Valerie Carter

We’ve got our second airing of this great album coming up mid-afternoon as Valerie Carter displays her considerable soul and R & B side.

7:00 p.m. Janis Joplin Live at The Fillmore East, New York City, February 12, 1969

We haven’t heard ‘live’ Janis for a while, and this is the perfect day to do just that. This one is from The Fillmore East. We have one great blues-rock legend singing at a legendary venue.

Good day to join the fun here in The Mermaid Lounge. I’m back at the salt mines today, but you are in good hands with The Music Mermaid. I promise. We’re free 24/7, so all you really need is a computer and a mouse to click on the link below.
