Containing Multitudes Since 2004
I think I'm in love. I absolutely have to go find some of her music. Not only for her but for that tall drink of water on her left. I like to think that she just sang something extremely bawdy which he was not expecting.
I would recommend starting with her take on Burn That Candle recorded for RCA seven days after Bill Haley cut it for Decca. Arthur's take is a good deal lustier IMHO and features Chet Atkins on lead guitar.As a foot note Col. Tom Parker introduced Charline Arthur to New York music publishers Hill and Range and it was they who brought her to RCA's attention.
Hopefully someone can find a good photo of Jeanie Mack.
Wasn't Jeannie a Spice/Flame girl? I swear this is her, 2nd pic down:http://www.collectormagazines.com/index.cfm/fa/items.main/parentcat/3591/subcatid/11691/id/170287and 2nd pic here:http://www.collectormagazines.com/index.cfm/fuseaction/items.main/parentcat/3591/subcatid/11690/id/169520
Definitely a resemblance! Good catch, Vanwall.
I seem to remember a reference to her as "Big Tits" by some musician on a French blog, with a more discreet pic of her, somewhere on the net. She came up in a discussion about Bettie Page once, and I thought she compared favorably, myself.
