On May 11, 1999, the Move released an archival live album: “BBC Sessions.”  Much more popular in the UK than they ever were in the United States, the album contained additional tracks from throughout the group’s rather short career cut at the Beeb.  We hope you will check this one out and consider adding it to your collection because despite whatever you might have heard, this band was among the major acts upon which, future bands would lay their foundation and could rock as hard as could the Who.  Please seek it out and enjoy- you will be glad you did.

Sunday, October 04, 2020:


[i] We promoted the music of Big Brother and the Holding Company, beginning on Monday, 18-July-2011 through Tuesday, 26-July-2011.  At the time, we were not farsighted enough to offer the music of Janis Joplin but hope to do so at some point in the near future when we return to promoting the music of American rock bands.

[ii] We should have shared the music of Badfinger at the time we promoted that of the Beatles but guess what?  We flipping failed just as we failed to promote the music of Thunderclap Newman at the same time we did the Who.  One day, we sure as heck will so please remain vigilant.

[iii] We feel bad that we did not begin promoting the music of Paul Revere and the Raiders around the time we shared the music of the Flamin’ Groovies.  Well, we hope to slip them in sometime within the next 6-7 years.  Please remain vigilant for the time that we do.  You will be glad you did.

I must say I am amazed that the AICP-END Blog would send up-and-coming Bakersfield, California, street artist, the amazing Simone to Maui to do some photographic portraits of me. We have moved in this direction since politics have turned millions of people against one another and it is important for us as employers and as private people with families to protect, that we begin covering our actual identities from those seeking to cause us problems. I must say, Simone has done a fine job and this is a caricature of me that meets with my approval. My husband and I live and own a restaurant in Kihei, Hawaii, and have also worked in institutional cooking at Maui’s premier hospital up in Wailuku. Chef Itzi Nakamura writes from Kihei, HI. Chef Itzi Nakamura is a proud member of the Democratic Party. Contact Itzi Nakamura @
