I love the soulful sounds of Jesse Dee. My husband and I tried to catch his gig at a local bar, but there was a line-up out the door. (I’m too old to stand in lines that don’t move.) I’ll make sure that next time I buy my tickets in advance.  - RM

“From the picture of this paler than pale, whiter than white dude on the back cover in white shirt and skinny black tie, you would think this CD to be filled with quirky new wave or power pop. Instead, what you get is one of the best underground, under-the-radar soul-pop albums to come out in a long time.” - Scott Homewood, The Rock and Roll Report

If you’ve lived in New York  or love New York, you have to read this book. Despite the fact that it takes place in 1987, many of the representations of the city still hold true today. You’ll have a richer and deeper understanding of the complexities of the Big Apple. – RM
