I spent the first twenty-five years of my life in Boston. I don’t have a lot to add to the ocean of ink and pixels that have already been spilled on the subject of the craziness that’s been going on all this week (and is, I hope, ending as I type). But an old and dear friend of mine who still lives there started a Facebook thread of youtube links to songs by great artists of Boston origin, and it quickly escalated into a gargantuan outpouring of nostalgic obscurity. I figured this here blog was as good a place as any to repost some of this fantastic, all-too-little-known greatness from my hometown. May it be the soundtrack to a happy and safe weekend for all of us.
