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 […]

Merry Christmas from Cambridge and Rachel Jarvis

Well, first of all, merry Christmas n happy holidays n’ all… I perhaps should mention right at the top that this year’s mix is relatively silly even by my standards… also relatively filthy, as it features a couple of songs (which I’ve thoughtfully placed at the very end, to make them easy to avoid) that […]

PJ O’Connell – “Can’t Get it Right”

There is no one I know on Cape Cod more kind and generous than P.J. O’Connell; no one writes better songs, either. He’s also a good neighbor, having lent me many cups of sugar and about 90 million cds somewhere along the line (and that’s way they call him the Cowboy Lawyer, or at least […]
