This isn’t fake news! The great Joltin’ Joe Sinnott is profiled in The New York Times. Click the picture to enlarge it, then look at the brown frame near the upper left corner. It’s a birthday card to Joe drawn by Stan Lee! Here’s a picture I took of it, and you can click this one too to see it full size.
Charlie Brown pitches for the Red Sox! Sort of. Tomorrow at Fenway Park in Boston will be Peanuts Night.
I don’t know how many aging PBS viewers are watching TV at 2:30 AM, but this is from a fundraiser that ran last night. The Lennon Sisters wore a lot of hair pieces in the Sixties, but never any as big as this one on Dusty!
For 50-cents each, I recently bought the four LP’s that Herb Alpert put out between 1965 and ’66. As Denro says, “There is no doubt that those albums sold millions and millions of copies in the 60’s….every thrift store across the USA has the proof!”
According to the dates engraved on the inner grooves, the copies I came upon aren’t first generation, but they are original pressings from those years. Recorded by Larry Levine at Gold Star studios in L.A., the sound quality is uniformly superb. I have listened to this track from “S.R.O” a half dozen times, and I imagine the musicians of the legendary Wrecking Crew must have been smiling when they heard the playback.
Note: As far as I know, only some of Alpert’s touring band, assembled after the fourth album, recorded with him in the studio.
Today’s sad news is that Adam West has died. Haven’t heard yet if he had been ill or if this was sudden and unexpected.
My friend, the sensational Lia Pamina, has a new music video! I love the “Pet Sounds” sound of this song. You can read an interview with the Spanish beauty, in English, at this link.
