wow. without even listening to it, I love this record...


The whole recording takes on a very dark tone in light of the letter. I'm imagining a backstabbing, carnivorous land shark of the entertainment mogul variety getting this wax in his ears to ease the residual shame and guilt. Think Tony Curtis as Sidney Falco from The Sweet Smell of Success, only two years post this recording.

J.J. Hunsecker: Mr. Falco, let it be said at once, is a man of 40 faces, not one - none too pretty, and all deceptive. You see that grin? That's the, eh, that's the Charming Street Urchin face. It's part of his helpless act: he throws himself upon your mercy. He's got a half-dozen faces for the ladies. But the one I like, the really cute one, is the quick, dependable chap. Nothing he won't do for you in a pinch - so he says. Mr. Falco, whom I did not invite to sit at this table tonight, is a hungry press agent, and fully up to all the tricks of his very slimy trade.
[Pulls out an unlit cigarette and faces Falco]
J.J. Hunsecker: Match me, Sidney.
Sidney Falco: Not right this minute, J.J.

A record just for ME I just threw out my meds Im cured.

I bought an otherwise mundane copy of Yma Sumac's Xtabay and took it home to listen to it and inside was a program from one of her performances at a theater in LA.
I was overjoyed! It was a cheaply printed program on a bi-fold booklet with campy Incan symbols.
But as I read it, I realized that it was from one of her performances in the mid-Eighties.
Still cool, but for a moment its retro-styling made me think it was something from the mid-Fifties.


This is a great find... I would love to use a sample of this in my band's (http://myspace.com/landlordsdaughter) upcoming album, if you would be amenable to it. (I have to ask permission from somebody, right? :) )
