Good Morning, Bluesologists! We’ve got another Tuesday Bluesday here and it’s about that time that we give you our long-playing Blues session again!

Here’s today’s bluesy line-up!

11:00 a.m. Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed, Something Blues: Various Artists UPDATED!

More than five hours of uninterrupted blues with James Cotton, the Paul Butterfield Blues Band, the Allman Brothers Band, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Muddy Waters, B.B.

7:00 p.m. Album of The Week: Old Yellow Moon by Emmylou Harris & Rodney Crowell

Tonight, we have the second airing of this great album by two masters who, although meeting in 1974, took their sweet time making an album together. It was worth the wait.

Tune us in on this bluesy Tuesday. It’s too damned hot outside to do anything else but kick back and enjoy the tunes. And if you are working and have the space, all you need is a browser tab to give a listen.

It’s Tuesday Bluesday Here in The Mermaid Lounge and We’ve Got Our Long-Playing Blues Playlist Plus Our Album of The Week, May 4, 2021

Good Morning, Bluesologists! It’s another fine Tuesday Bluesday here in The Mermaid Lounge and it’s time once again for our long-playing blues playlist, Someting Old, Something New, Something Borrowed and Something Blues! We’ve also got our second airing of our Album of The Week.

We kick off Tuesday Bluesday at 11:00 a.m. with more than four hours of non-stop blues!

Here’s your line-up:

11:00 a.m. Tuesday Bluesday: Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed, Something Blues

We’ve got over four hours of uninterrupted blues to celebrate Tuesday Bluesday today. You’ll be hearing James Cotton, Muddy Waters, B.B. King, Koko Taylor, Eric Clapton, Delbert McClinton, Bonnie Raitt, Elmore James, The Rolling Stones, J. J. Cale, Johnny Winter, Albert King, Canned Heat, Ry Cooder, John Lee Hooker, The Animals, and many more!

7:00 p.m. Album of The Week: Nothing But A Breeze by Jesse Winchester

It’s our second airing of Nothing But A Breeze for the week today. As we said at the beginning, Jesse Winchester is one of the most underrated and underappreciated singer-songwriters of his generation, but certainly not by his peers. His music has been recorded by Emmylou Harris, Elvis Costello, Jimmy Buffet, Joan Baez, Willie Nelson, and even Patti Page. You ought to get to know the guy.

So, here we are again at the inevitable close: We run 24/7 with more wide open stream than programming, we’re totally free, we ask for no credit cards or personal information. Our DJ’s are pretty quiet, we accept no advertising, and The Music Mermaid has great taste in music. What more can you ask for. All you need is a tab:

It’s Tuesday Bluesday With the Paul Butterfield Blues Band, Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, and Our Album of The Week, April 20, 2021

Please, allow us to also mention the fact that it is 4/20. And you know what that means. Is there a better combination than weed and great music. We think not.

We kick off Tuesday Bluesday with the Paul Butterfield Blues Band!

Here’s your Tuesday Bluesday line-up:

11:00 a.m. The Paul Butterfield Blues Band Live at The Unicorn Coffee House, Boston, MA, Spring 1966

Boston had some great little music venues back in the day, and The Unicorn was one of them. In the spring of ’66, it played host to one great blues band.

3:00 p.m. Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers Sing The Blues

Speaking of da blues, Tom Petty once said he imagined his band getting old together, sitting in chairs, and singing the blues. Sadly, that day is gone now, but the Heartbreakers did a great job on the blues. Their Mojo album was a tribute to the blues. Today, we show you why Petty’s scenario would have been a great way to grow old.

7:00 p.m. Album of The Week: Medicine At Midnight by Foo Fighters

The second airing of Medicine At Midnight happens this evening. The album was delayed by COVID-19, but was worth the wait. The Foos are one of the very few “today” bands that get airplay here.

Tune us in. We’re not-for-profit in a serious way. We don’t pay Amazon or Apple for our music. We find it elsewhere and for less money. We don’t feed the machine in any sense of the word.

It’s Tuesday Bluesday With Clapton & Friends, Peter Green’s Fleetwood Mac, and Our Album of The Week Later, March 23, 2021

Good Morning, Bluesologists! Here we are in The Mermaid Lounge preparing for another Tuesday Bluesday, and we’re digging deep for some stuff we haven’t heard in a while.

Peter Green’s Fleetwood Mac. Most aren’t aware that Fleetwood Mac was originally a real blues band.

Here’s your line-up for today:

11:00 a.m. Eric Clapton With Jimmy Page, Jeff Beck & Joe Cocker

Here’s some real blue-eyed blues rock for you, led by Eric Clapton who has a penchant for getting his friends together for a great time. This is no exception.

3:00 p.m. Peter Green’s Fleetwood Mac Live at The Warehouse, New Orleans (1970)

Most people think of Fleetwood Mac as a pop band, but the original Fleetwood Mac was a blues band, led by Peter Green. This is a great collection here known commercially as The Warehouse Tapes. Keep in mind this was recorded in 1970, so there’s no great engineering going on with this stuff. It’s just…there.

7:00 p.m. Album of The Week: Let It Be…Naked by The Beatles

Again, the stripped down version of the Fab Four’s final album the way it was originally meant to be heard, and the way we here in The Mermaid Lounge prefer it.

If you’re a bluesologist, this would be your day to give us a shot. Seriously. We’re totally free. We ask for no subscription or credit card information. We do not even ask your name. All you do is pull up a computer tab and click the link below. That’s the way it is every day.

It’s Tuesday Bluesday With Stevie Ray Vaughan In the Spotlight, Mick Jagger & Jeff Beck Live in Reseda, and Eva Cassidy & Our AOW on March 16, 2021

Good Morning, Bluesologists! We’ve got some great programming as we introduce a new Spotlight featuring blues guitar legend Stevie Ray Vaughan. We also have Mick Jagger and Jeff Beck live.

The late, great Stevie Ray Vaughan is In The Spotlight this morning.

Here’s today’s programming:

11:00 a.m. In the Spotlight: The Music of Stevie Ray Vaughan NEW!

Today we introduce a brand new Spotlight featuring blues guitar great Stevie Ray Vaughan, some cuts studio and some live, a couple live with Double Trouble. This has been a long time coming.

We have added the track list to the Playlist section of the blog.

3:00 p.m. Album of The Week: Songbird by Eva Cassidy

Today is our second airing of Eva Cassidy’s Songbird album, a compilation album released posthumously. Eva Cassidy never got to appreciate stardom, dying tragically of cancer at the age of 33 in 1996, but her music lives on.

7:00 p.m. Mick Jagger & Jeff Beck Live at The Country Club, Reseda, CA, October 20, 1978

Speaking of the blues, this is a great bootleg from The Country Club. Rounding out the band we have Doug Wimbish on bass, Terry Bozio on drums, and Phil Ashley on keyboards.

Tune us in, folks. We have worldwide reach and plenty of countries are on board. Today we have France, Germany, Denmark, Estonia, Italy, Greece, the UK, Japan, Australia, and even the United States.

It’s Tuesday Bluesday with Janis Joplin, the Great B.B. King and Maria Muldaur With Our Album of The Week, March 9, 2021

Good Morning, Bluesologists! It’s another Tuesday Bluesday in The Mermaid Lounge, and we’ve got a bit of the blues lined up for you today starting with Janis.

Janis Joplin was a force of fucking nature, gone before her time.

Here’s today’s line-up:

11:00 a.m. Janis Joplin & The Kozmic Blues Band, Live at The Concertgebouw, Amsterdam, April 1, 1969

Doesn’t matter if she was solo, with Big Brother & The Holding Company or The Kozmic Blues Band, Janis Joplin gave us some seriously great blues-rock. She was a force of nature who burned bright, and was gone before we knew it.

3:00 p.m. Album of The Week: Heart of Mine by Maria Muldaur

Funny thing here, Maria Muldaur has a varied musical history, starting out in the folk houses of Greenwich Village, but she is also known as a pretty solid blues singer as well. On this particular album, she does a great job (and a bit bluesy at that) on the love songs of Bob Dylan (yes, he was not just about protest and social issues).

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

The master of the blues with his girl Lucille will pay us a visit as our final musical programming of the day. It’s a great way to close out Tuesday Bluesday.

Tune us in folks! Today we welcome listeners from Estonia, so what the hell are you all waiting for?

A very happy birthday to Lucinda Williams, a great blues-rock performer in her own right. We are big fans of Lucinda here in the Lounge and she is, after all, a friend of Tom.

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.
