the mix and match project was conceived by myself and chris schooley as a way of friends working collaboratively to educate ourselves and others about music. it started very simply: an exchange of mix cd's and coffee. then we talked more about it and decided to include more people, in an effort to make the result (hopefully) at least somewhat entertaining.

Mix and Match vol. 4 submissions from Joe

On the road again...

Fats Domino - Walking to New Orleans
This song is about a guy walking home after his girl spends all his money, as only Fats Domino can sing it. Rough times.

Dropkick Murphys - The Wild Rover
Drinking song about a travelin' prodigal son who is about to repent. Listen for the tin whistle during the chorus, the barroom in the background adds a nice touch too.

Jackie Greene - Gone Wanderin'
Another tale of heartbreak about a rambling man who just can't seem to stop wandering.

Crown City Rockers - Weekend Soul
Funky, Roots-esque hip-hop from a group that has members hailing from the Berklee School of Music in Boston. Stream of conscious/social commentary from the emcee while he's strolling through his neighborhood. Sit back, relax, and let the beat flow..
