And check this out: a new song "Monbo Time" by The Remains is now
available to purchase on iTunes!
The new song about the Boston Red Sox by the sixties Boston rock legends, The
Remains, is now available at iTunes!!
"Monbo Time" is meant, in part, to be a tribute to the 1960s Red Sox pitching ace, Bill Monbouquette.
In support of Monbouquette's battle against leukemia, and Remains keyboard player Bill Briggs' recent bout with bladder cancer,
The Remains have pledged to donate 50% of the revenues they receive to cancer research and treatment.
Like I have to explain, right? But anyway: The Remains (aka Barry & The Remains)
have been recognized by the Boston Herald as the "Boston rock 'n' roll legends…that
kick-started the Hub's rock 'n' roll scene." They started out at Boston University
in the mid-1960s, quickly signed a record deal with Epic, played the Ed Sullivan
Show and Hullabaloo, were the opening act for the Beatles' last-ever tour, and
then broke up right after that '66 tour. David Levin, a New York City public
school teacher who grew up in the Boston area and is a diehard Red Sox fan,
collaborated with Barry Tashian and Vern Miller of The Remains, and Fred Cantor,
a producer of both a stage musical and documentary about the band, in writing
"Monbo Time" is an adaptation of a Remains tune, "Time Keeps Movin' On,"
and is intended to capture several aspects of a Red Sox fan's experience, ranging
from going to Fenway Park for the first time, to the passage of time from the
perspective of a longtime fan.
