A little known fact about your’s truly is that I spent most of my 20s seeing local bands play rather than dancing at clubs. One of those local musicians who I really loved was / is Juliana Hatfield. She had brief brush with mainstream success with songs like Universal Heartbeat and Spin the Bottle, but the quirky rocker from Boston was always more at home under the radar.
Last year I saw her for the first time in years and she still sounds great. At the ACLU benefit here in Boston Juliana performed her song Short Fingered Man, a song about a certain someone living at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue these days.
So when I heard a track from her forthcoming Olivia Newton-John tribute album on Kenneth in the (212), I instantly started playing her cover A Little More Love. The CD won’t be available until April 13th but you can pre-order it on Amazon, here: Juliana Hatfield Sings Olivia Newton-John.
