Just another site that's giving you hard to find music

These will be some Rarer tunes (Mod, powerpop, punk, ska, - if it's got a good sound I'll post it) ripped from my vinyl collection. The idea is that now you Know about them, You can seek them out!
If anyone is unhappy about any of these posts please contact me & I will take them off

Prof Anonymous With The Marshalls - Christmas Elf EP (1980)

A1 Christmas Elf
A2 Singalong Chrismas Elf (Stacks Of Tracks Version)
B1 Kissing Is The Only Way
B2 It's Surprising (What A Little Change Can Do)

This is the 2nd 45 by the Marshalls from Boston & like all (?) releases on their own Isabelle label
1st was Am ep
3rd was Gettin' Out ep

They are probably more Famous for their links to Jonathan Richman than their own music, which is a shame!

The Main band were

Kevin Marshall (voc guitar)
Ellie Marshall (voc guitar)
Kenny Marshall (bass voc)
Barry Marshall (drums)

but they had plenty of friends helping out on this recording (for info just download & read)

Christmas Elf was also included on a Boston WBCN Christmas compilation Hark The Rock n Rollers Sing with amongst others from the Boston scene, some more Marshalls related tracks.
