Containing Multitudes Since 2004
Tom, I take it you've heard Mae West sing the tune "Criswell Predicts"?I have it on the same album where she sings Great Balls of Fire and Light My Fire.
I've heard Mae West's recording of "Light My Fire", but I wasn't even aware of "Criswell Predicts"Uhhhh . . . I need to hear that.Speaking of Shtars of yesterday making records, back in the mid-80s I heard about 30 seconds of a record Bette Davis had recorded that year; some ballad with a full orchestral accompaniment. I remember thinking her voice (you can imagine what it sounded like by then) had a definite species of ravaged beauty to it that was not unlike (dare I say it?) Billie Holiday's singing on "Lady in Satin"That's one record I'd love to hear again.
You haven't heard Criswell Predicts? Guess I'll have to do up a goodie bag to send back when my tape arrives. As for Bette Davis, I have a vinyl LP called Bette Sings that includes stuff like They're Either Too Young Or Too Old and of course I'm Sending A Letter To Daddy...maybe the track you're thinking of is on there. I'll check.I also have Eddie Albert singing Bob Dylan and a whole album of Jim Nabors singing in character as Gomer Pyle called Shazam!
