You’ve Got A Friend in the White Prince

 

“You’ve Got a Friend” – the White Prince with orchestral accompaniment by the Brain Bats of Venus (aka the Incredible Casuals), recorded live at the Marbledale Pub, Marbledale, CT., by Chris Blood, circa 1983 or so (contrary to what it says in the liner notes!) From “The White Prince Story: You’ve Got a […]

Long May The White Prince Reign

“Changes” – The White Prince with instrumental accompaniment by the Brain Bats of Venus (aka the Incredible Casuals), live at the Wellfleet Beachcomber, recorded by Chris Blood, god only knows when.

For those who don’t know already, the White Prince is Chris Blood, our long-suffering soundman and occasional record company president, making his annual […]

I Got To Move (dub version)

“I Got To Move (dub version)” -“That’s That” outtake, recorded and mixed by Rikki Bates, 1986-ish. Actually, I think I might’ve had a hand in mixing this one, too -seem to remember being in on it in Robert MacNamara’s basement way back when -but it was basically Rikki’s deal, and I absolutely love it, have […]

I Got To Move (“classic”)

“I Got to Move“- the Incredible Casuals, from “That’s That” (Demon Records, transferred from vinyl by P.J. O’Connell)- recorded by Rikki Bates. This is probably the most commonly heard version of “I Got To Move”, which I think of as the Prince version (apparently a phase I was going through at the time!), and it’s […]

I Got To Move (original version)

“I Got To Move” -the Incredible Casuals, from “New Hats For Summer”, #2 in the Inedible Casserole series, recorded by Rikki Bates.

We have five completely different versions of this one, by three different bands (3 by the Casuals and 1 each by the Chandler Travis Philharmonic and by Lester), and I always thought it […]

The Strongman of North America – the final mix

 

“The Strongman of North America” – the Chandler Travis Philharmonic from the new CD, “Bocce & Bourbon: the Comfortable Songs of Chandler Travis & David Greenberger“, recorded by Ducky Carlisle at Ice Station Zebra (and me, a little, here.)

So a couple weeks ago, we put up an early, unfinished mix of “Strongman“, […]

Argh! More Snow!

“More Snow” – from the cassette Inedible Casserole #6: The Casserole of Death.

By request, we’re bringing you one from the vaults this week. It’s a song we play just a couple times of year, and this year it seems more appropriate than ever here in the Northeast US.

Thanks to David “Pope […]

Bocce & Bourbon: The Comfortable Songs of Chandler Travis & David Greenberger

The Chandler Travis Philharmonic has kept a low profile the past couple of years while Chandler has enjoyed developing two great new bands, the Catbirds and the Chandler Travis Three-O (the latter being a smaller, satellite version of the Philharmonic -both delivered critically acclaimed debut albums in 2013), but we’re back with a vengeance in […]

Now it Can be Told – There is a New Album in the Works!

We here at Chandler Travis World HQ have been all atwitter about the news that there is a new CD in the works. We tried like darn to keep our collective mouths shut until it was official, and now we can tell you about it.

It all started when Chandler decided to put together […]

RIP, Sweet Kate

Worst possible news this week, as we lost arguably our best fan ever, the lovely and personable Kate Greenhalgh… how can this be true? She finally hit the road last week after a long and grueling illness, and I know I’m not the only one having a hard time getting my head around it. […]
