Album Notes
Armed with Charlie Chaplin charm and Shakespearian insight, Pokey LaFarge weaves 12 timeless originals into the fabric of Americana. Calling upon the soul of Ray Charles just as much as the imagery of Townes van Zandt, \"Beat, Move, and Shake\" creates a delightful blend of quirky pop and delta-meets-appalachia country blues. Backed by an unfaltering beat on an upright bass, Pokey picks at his guitar and lets his voice float freely in an album whose title will prove to be it\'s best description.

Better than whiskey
There's nothing better in this big and dismal world than listening to Pokey LaFarge when its cold and dark and raining.

J. E. Holmes

Great record
Great effort from Mr. LaFarge. I liked his first record a lot, and I\'m thinking this one\'s even better.

Stephanie Rosolack

Love it!
This CD is just about life, including its ups and downs. Down to earth reality! I have been listening to it nonstop! Very touching.

I love the way this kid thinks about and questions life. He's very open and honest with his music which really gives you a feel for what kind of person he is. It's just one of those albums you can connect with and I highly recommend it.
