Mark Holder: Sweet Caroline
From Where There’s a Will, There’s a Way (Deriva, 1973)
Alas, despite having been indoctrinated into the Red Sox Nation since a wee lad, growing up outside of Boston, I’ve never been to a game at Fenway (had a shot in 2004 but had to pass it up for family business). That said, thanks to friends and, uh, Fever Pitch, I know a lil something about the park traditions. This version of Neil Diamond’s “Sweet Caroline” comes from Guyanese artist Mark Holder (who also does a surprisingly good version of Clyde McPhatter’s “Mixed Up Cup” of all songs).
