  1. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    Off topic, but man do I miss the "old days" of Sunday comics. Look at that -- a whole page just for "Popeye"! The front page of my local paper's Sunday comics section has 5 different strips squeezed onto it. It's no wonder most cartoonists can't draw worth squat these days -- the strips aren't printed large enough for readers to appreciate quality artwork. I'm glad I came along in time to catch the waning days of "Pogo". "Li'l Abner" "Gasoline Alley" "Dick Tracy" "Steve Canyon" and "Prince Valiant".
  2. I will probably best remember her for her "guest villain" appearance on Batman. She played Calamity Jan alongside husband Cliff Robertson's western outlaw, Shame. I never knew that about her family background. She definitely gave the impression of some one coming from "class". I never would have guessed she was still alive. May she Rest In Peace.
  3. The Frank Morgan Story

    I found the movie on DVD at the local library and watched it tonight. It's a decent enough movie. A central part of it is a memorial concert given at San Quentin with musicians like Ron Carter, George Cables and Grace Kelly. Delfeayo Marsalis performed and narrated the story of Frank Morgan at that concert. There are plenty of interviews with family, friends and fellow musicians and some archival interview clips with the subject himself. I'd give it a B-.

    CD reissue which includes the albums Soul Power and Super Soul, both recorded in 1967.
  5. Album covers with artists in undershirts

    This is likely Shaun Cassidy's first and final appearance here on the forum .

    The back cover of Darkness On The Edge Of Town
  7. I just checked this out from the library. I'm looking forward to watching it. Recently watched It still holds up well as a suspenseful caper picture -- probably better than many movies made in that genre today. It takes a strong & confident filmmaker to film a huge chunk of a movie (maybe half an hour, I'd guess) without any dialog at all and without any musical score to tell the audience how it is supposed to be feeling. That whole sequence succeeds brilliantly because Jules Dassin had confidence that the audience could follow along, a confidence Hollywood nowadays completely lacks in its audiences (although perhaps there is some justification for their lack of faith in the intelligence of the present day film audience.)
  8. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    This package has a CD & DVD of the same concert, recorded on May 14, 1990 at Lone Star Roadhouse in NYC. It was recorded in an HD format for broadcast in Japan, but that particular HD format was never adopted in the US. Fortunately the performance was transferred and preserved in digital formats which are accessible to US consumers. I listened to the CD. It's a typical setlist, including his big hits. The only thing different is that Clifford Solomon was not yet part of his band at that time, so it is just the quartet of Mr. Brown, Danny Caron, Earl May and Keith Copeland. The package also includes a terrific booklet with a well written 40+ page bio of Charles Brown written by Chip Deffaa with lots of photos. (There wwas also a performance by Ruth Brown recorded that same night and place, but I don't know if it has ever been released. I'd love to have that too.)

    Disc 2 of 2. This set also comes with a CD sized reproduction of the program for this JATP concert. Nice photos, but the text, not surprisingly, is in German.
