Loved and Feared: Buddy McLean, Boss of The Notorious Winter Hill Gang During Boston's Irish Mob War
Synopsis:Mention the Winter Hill Gang and most people immediately think of James “Whitey” Bulger. But Bulger was not the founder of the gang. He was not even the second leader.

The friends soon discovered how lucrative that could be. They were prepared to follow the lead of their pal in what became the Winter Hill Gang.The friend was Buddy McLean.Larry Leavitt states:“When I was a young boy, my father told me stories about Buddy McLean. I became fascinated with him. Years later, several books were published about Whitey Bulger and the Winter Hill Gang. There was never much written about Buddy, though I thought his story was much better. I mentioned the idea of writing a book about Buddy to my Dad. He said, ‘Absolutely, who better to write about.’“Many of those with knowledge of Buddy passed away or refused to talk. Several people who agreed to meet with me demanded to remain anonymous. Sometimes they held back information, feeling like they would be breaking a code of silence. The folks who did agree to s...

The Irish King of Winter Hill: The True Story of James J. Buddy McLean
The Irish King of Winter Hill is the story of the rise and fall James J. "Buddy" McLean, from his humble beginnings as a hardworking truck driver in Boston, to leading the original and now infamous Winter Hill Gang, to his untimely murder in 1965. He will best be remembered for eliminating the McLaughlin Gang from Charlestown during the 1960s McLean-McLaughlin Irish gang war. Buddy, who worked on the Boston docks in the late 1950s and early 1960s with his father's union card, was also a teamster from Local No. 25. This was a time when gangsters ran the docks. This story is written by Michael McLean, who says, "I have read all the books and the information on the Internet about my father, and most of it is wrong. After talking to his closest friends, I decided I would set the record straight." About the Author: Michael McLean grew up in Somerville, Massachusetts, and now lives in South Boston. Most of this book takes place in Somerville. The first-time author works on the docks using his father's union card, which has now been handed down for three generations.

Pinky Winters. Let's Be Buddies
Pinky Winters is a favorite of listeners who cherish superior songs sung with fealty to the intentions of the composers and lyricists who created them. Much of her best work was done with pianist Lou Levy after the two weathered an uncomfortable first encounter and eventually became professional and personal partners. They recorded Let s Be Buddies when their musical understanding was at full flower. With Monty Budwig, one of the greatest bassists of his generation, Levy and Ms. Winters performed 14 songs by the cream of contemporary songwriters including Cole Porter, Antonio Carlos Jobim, Johnny Mandel, Hoagy Carmichael and the Gershwin brothers. Among the singers who cherished Levy as an accompanist were Frank Sinatra, Ella Fitzgerald, Sarah Vaughan and Peggy Lee. In this collection, he and Pinky Winters rival all of them in intimacy, musicality and depth of interpretation. Doug Ramsey
