Winwood & Clapton Live, A Couple of Great Albums From Tom Petty, and Our “Live Dead” For Saturday, April 25, 2020

Good Morning, Ungovernables! We have an excellent Saturday ahead of us from a musical perspective.

Winwood-Clapton

Let’s get down to the details:

12:00 p.m.   Steve Winwood & Eric Clapton: Live at Madison Square Garden (2009)

Two musical legends here live on the same stage. It doesn’t get much better than this.

5:00 p.m.     Album of the Week: Tom Petty’s Wildflowers

To learn more about this great album, simply click on the album photo in the right sidebar of this blog!

7:30 p.m.     NOT The Album of the Week: Full Moon Fever, Tom Petty   NEW!

Today’s treat gives us yet another great solo effort by Tom Petty. Full Moon Fever was released 31 years ago Friday, on April 24, 1989. Petty was joined on the album not only by his Heartbreaker bandmates, but also by his Wilbury bandmates. The album was produced by Tom Petty, Jeff Lynne, and Mike Campbell. Most of the compositions were by Petty and Lynne. The album was an immediate critical and commercial success, peaking at number 3 on the Billboard charts. It was certified 5X platinum in the U.S. and 6X platinum in Canada.

10:00 p.m.    Live Dead! The Grateful Dead Live in Anchorage, Alaska, June 21, 1980   NEW!

Welcome to the cosmic land of Live Dead, where no two sets are ever the same.

Hang with us today. It’ll be amazing. www.tinyurl.com/becomeungovernableradio

A Rare Hendrix “Live” Show, Badfinger in Kansas City, and “Wildflowers” is Back, Thursday, April 23, 2020

Good Morning, Ungovernables! We had a day off, and we’re back full speed today with some rare Hendrix, in fact

Here’s your Thursday line-up!

1:00 p.m.   Album of the Week: Tom Petty’s Wildflowers

You can learn more about this outstanding solo Tom Petty album by clicking the image in the sidebar on this blog!

4:00 p.m.   Jimi Hendrix Live at the Cafe Au-Go-Go, March 17, 1968   NEW!

When I say getting live Hendrix is a rarity, it’s because his professional career lasted only four years before his premature death at the age of 27. In spite of that, he is regarded as one of the most influential musicians in rock music history.

7:00 p.m.   Badfinger Live at the Cowtown Auditorium, Kansas City (1972)

The Badfinger story is indeed a tragic one, but this band was the only legitimate star signing for Apple Records, and they left us a great body of music to appreciate.

Tune us in! We’re free. Totally. No personal information required either.

Alison Krauss & Union Station “Live,” Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers are Our Tuesday Bluesday Feature & Van Morrison Captivates at The Hollywood Bowl, Tuesday, April 21, 2020

Good Morning, Ungovernables! I had a schedule switch and I’m opening today, so we have an early blog post.

Van Morrison-Astral Weeks Live

Here’s Your Tuesday Bluesday line-up:

12:00 p.m.   Alison Krauss & Union Station Live!

This was the eleventh album for the band, but its first live album. All of the songs were recorded at the Louisville Palace (April 29 & 30, 2002), with the exception of Down To The River To Pray, which was recorded at Austin City Limits.

4:00 p.m.     Tuesday Bluesday: Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers Sing the Blues

Tom Petty was serious about the blues, and his band could certainly sing and play the blues. He often said he envisioned them as old men sitting around with their guitars singing the blues.

8:00 p.m.     Van Morrison: Astral Weeks Live at the Hollywood Bowl (2008)   NEW!

This was the fifth live album released by Van Morrison. It was recorded on November 7 and 8, 2008, exactly forty years after the first iteration of Astral Weeks was released. Morrison produced this effort, insisting on just one rehearsal and no post-production. Essentially you hear what the audience heard the two nights it was recorded.

10:00 p.m.   Album of the Week: Tom Petty’s Wildflowers

Wildflowers is the second solo studio album (of three) by Tom Petty, who was joined in the studio by his bandmates and a collection of some of the best studio musicians in rock n’roll history.

Tune us in today. We’re free every day. We do not ask for personal information. No credit card is required. We are totally free.

“Wildflowers” Debuts, The Soul Queens Return & Eric Clapton Hangs With His Friends, on Sunday, April 19, 2020

Good Morning, Ungovernables! Well, we have some great new stuff for you on this day, including the debut of Tom Petty’s solo gem, Wildflowers, as our Album of the Week.

The Soul Queens, Vol. 1

Here’s your Sunday Funday line-up:

1:00 p.m.  Album of the Week: Tom Petty’s Wildflowers   NEW!

Wildflowers was the second solo studio album by Tom Petty, and it was released on November 1, 1994. In spite of Petty’s desire to break free of the constraints of the band, he used most of his compadres as session musicians. The album resulted in four single releases, the most successful of which was You Don’t Know How It Feels. The other three were It’s Good To Be King (my all-time favorite Petty song), You Wreck Me, and A Higher Place. Read more about the album and the contributors here
