Darlene Love: Christmas (Baby Please Come Home)


No Christmas is complete without Phil Spector’s wall of sound providing the soundtrack and this is quite simply the greatest Christmas song of all time. Merry Christmas everyone!



Heavy Rotation: Summer Dreaming by Tony Rivers & The Castaways


Following my recent post on Feel Flows, I’ve been listening to a lot of music that’s been heavily influenced by The Beach Boys.

I found this gem by Tony Rivers & The Castaways via this blog. I know nothing about the song or band but quite simply, it sounds like the musical equivalent of purified Californian sunshine.

A special mention goes to the unexpected Latin-flavoured outtro too – I’m sure Brian and the boys would approve.
